SOUTH AFRICA: Illovo sees lower sugar production in 2003/04
South African-based Illovo Sugar has said it expects its sugar production to be slightly lower in 2003/04 than in the previous year, partly because of dry weather conditions in South Africa. Chairman Robbie Williams said the company's overall sugar output was forecast at 2.2 million tonnes, a decline of 100,000 tonnes compared to the previous season. Williams added that Illovo's cane production is estimated to be around 5.6 million tonnes this year, 200,000 tonnes lower than last season.
