Acting Chairman of the National Association of Sugar Producers of Ukraine «Ukrsugar» Nazar Mykhailovyn told about this in an interview for The Ukrainian Farmer.

“Enterprises are loaded at 100 percent, they work on wheels — they don't store sweet roots in piles or clamps. So, sugarbeets are harvested, immediately loaded and taken to sugar production,” Mykhailovyn noted.

According to acting chairman of «Ukrsugar» Association, currently there are about 35 sugar factories in Ukraine that can produce more than 2 million tonnes of sugar.

“This amount will be enough to supply domestic market with sugar and to create export potential. However, they need to be modernized,” Mykhailovyn.
