Syrian sugar refinery cuts production by 75%
- Syria: Thursday, February 07 - 2013 at 07:05
Syria's Middle East Sugar Refinery is currently operating at 25% of capacity, as it struggles to finance imports of raw sugar from international trade houses in the midst of the civil conflict, Reuters has reported, citing a source close to the refinery. The refinery, which has a total capacity of 600,000 tonnes a year, is one of four sugar refineries in Syria. "The capacity is low because of a shortage of raw sugar," the source said. He added that the refinery has struggled to obtain Brazilian supplies as Western sanctions hinder trade finance.
