Welcome to the Sept. Issue of Sweeteners China News.

This newsletter will help you stay ahead of the game in this fast-changing market with real-time reporting on the entire sweeteners industry chain, from raw materials to end consumption. It includes breaking news from China and abroad, the latest market data (price, import & export, production, consumption, operating rates, etc.), in-depth analysis of market trends, Chinese government policy, performance of Chinese producers, M&A, new technology, and expert commentary from industry insiders.

Here is the Editor's Note for you to know about the Sept. issue specifically:

The new recommendatory standards for sugar was enforced in China as of 1 Sept., with the indicator of sulphur dioxide changed from no more than 6 mg/kg-30 mg/kg to no more than 100 mg/kg. Loose requirement for sulphur dioxide, according to experts, will pose no threat to human safety. On 14 Sept., a meeting was held in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, during which the progress of "dual high" sugarcane planting bases was disclosed, so were the problems found during the work.

Shangdu Biohym started sugar production on 20 Sept., becoming the first sugar factory in China that begins production in the 2018/19 extracting season. Sugar production in Inner Mongolia started five days earlier this season than the last one, due to large quantities of beet. It is predicted that 800,000-1 million tonnes of beet sugar will be produced in Inner Mongolia, which will enable it to be the country's biggest beet sugar-producing area.

QHT, Baolingbao, COFCO Sugar, and Guangxi Yuegui all realised a YoY increase in net profit, with a respective rate of 65.44%, 2%, 45.5%, and 99.37%. However, Global Sweeteners' net loss was up by 148.22% YoY.

From Jan. to Aug., prices of sucralose kept decreasing in China, due to continuous declines in cane sugar prices and intensified competition of the industry. Given the fact that L&P will probably launch its 2,000 t/a sucralose expansion project within this year, falls in prices are predicted to continue.
