The Association of Sugar Producers of Honduras (APAH) is demanding respect for the legitimacy of the possessions of mill owners and independent growers in light of the situation where 10,000 hectares of various properties are subject to litigation. "... concerns are being raised over the fact that the argument over the agrarian ceilings are leaving in question the legitimacy of private property."
Honduran Sugar producers are confident that the harvest which will start at the end of November will exceed 11 million quintals of sugar produced in 2012.
A possible revision of Decree 261-2005, which regulates the production, purchase and sale of sugarcane, has alarmed the Association of Sugar Producers.
Mexico opened an export quota for 100,000 tons of sugar, with Honduran sugar producers attempting to take advantage of it.
Africa and Taiwan are two of the new destinations where 200,000 quintals from the 2014 harvest will be exported.
