Thailand is one of the world’s largest raw sugar exporters and an especially important supplier to East Asian refiners.


Around 50% of raw sugar is produced in the North-East of the country, and is then transported to ports in the south by truck.

The major sugar ports are the Aow Thai Terminal, Kerry Siam Sea Port, and Siam Commercial Sea Port, located at Laem Chabang and Sri Racha.

Thailand’s raw sugar is often highly competitive on the world market because Thai mills are efficient and have a low cost of production.

In recent years, most of Thailand’s raw sugar been exported to Indonesia, as the country has a large sugar deficit and strong demand from its refining sector.
