Thailand is a major white sugar producer and exporter.


Thailand makes white sugar directly from sugar cane, but also by re-melting raw sugar at the end of the cane crushing season.

By law, Thai mills must produce enough white sugar each year to satisfy domestic demand.

People in Thailand are becoming more aware of the amount of sugar they consume, in part because the Government increased its soft drinks tax in 2018.

The remaining sugar can then be exported, predominantly to countries across South East Asia.
