05.03.2018

Ukrainian sugar industry is a self-sufficient sector, which only last year paid 3,1 billion UAH of taxes. It was emphasized by Andriy Dykun, the head of «Ukrsugar» during the 2-nd International Congress Sugar World 2018.

«Sugar industry provides work for 85 thousand people. Last year, sugar production amounted to 2,1 million tonnes. At the same time, Ukraine became an export "breakthrough" for the world and shipped more than 700 thousand tonnes of sugar», — noticed Mr. Dykun.

The opinion of the head of «Ukrtsugar» was supported by Vasyl Kharchenko, «Kraevid» LLC:

«Domestic sugar industry has a huge potential, we can compete with global players. At present, 8-9 tonnes of sugar per hectare is the normal real result for Ukraine. But, we need more high-quality refineries and better equipment to get achievements not worse than the world».
