The first to commence crushing was 20 days later than in 16/17 campaign. It is foreseen sugar manufacturing nationwide shall start in mid December. Owing to the delayed start of crushing, there was insufficient supply, and hence sugar price stabilizes around 6,500 yuan/ton, but 1801 contract price surged from 6,300 to over 6,620 yusn/ton within a short period after the sugar conference. Since the peak crushing season shall not arrive until December, but at present it is the peak period for cargo inventory preparation for the Spring Festival, the demand from processing industries is prosperous.
