"The largest deliveries were made to Azerbaijan - 38%, Sudan - 16%, Tajikistan - 13%, Turkey - 8% and Sri Lanka - 7%," the statement said.
According to the head of the analytical department of Ukrtsukor, the current marketing year started not so actively as the past year due to unfavorable market conditions.

The current sugar season began on August 30. As of October 5, 39 sugar factories operated and 369.7 thousand tons of sugar were produced.
