Agriculture and Fisheries Council discussed the sugar market

At the 2995th Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held in Brussels on 22 February 2010, the Portuguese delegation, supported by Bulgaria, Finland, Romania and the United Kingdom, asked the Commission to propose exceptional measures for the sugar refinery industry, hence rebalancing the impact of the additional out-of-quota exports on the supply of raw sugar cane. Commissioner Ciolos informed the Council that in the view of the Commission the condition for exceptional measures under the single CMO, i.e. the presence of a supply problem, was not met. In fact, the Commission expected for the next year a sugar surplus of around 300 000 t.
