Pakistan Flour Mills Association has made an important statement regarding sugar reserves in the country.
According to details, a statement issued by the Pakistan Flour Mills Association said that the figures of the Commerce Ministry regarding surplus sugar reserves contradict the facts. At present, the country has surplus reserves of 2 million tonnes of sugar.
According to the spokesperson, the delay in the export of surplus sugar is pushing Pakistan to the situation of 2017. If the government decides to export sugar after October, it will not prove to be of interest to the sugar industry.
