The Tate and Lyle mystery

Dr Krishnamurthi, the Fiji born sugar expert, has said that our sugar “is in high demand overseas because of its lack of impurities” and he’s probably right. So how does he explain the fact that Tate and Lyle have not bought all of last year’s crop? They certainly used to buy it all, and they sent experts to help us improve our milling to get more sugar. It looks like Tate and Lyle, after seeing FSC up close and seeing the Minister for Sugar up close, decided they’d seek other sources. It’s no good relying on an industry that’s so unreliable and looks doomed, especially with a Minister for Sugar who knows nothing and cares even less about the industry.
