With less than five weeks to go until the end of the 2014-15 sugar campaign in Europe, Platts sugar editors Darren Stetzel and Nicolle Monteiro de Castro discuss the current tradingenvironment in the EU 45 ICUMSA Containers market with David Elward, managing editor of sugar pricing. Sellers are preparing to shift remaining export quota volume in containers to destination before the end of the campaign, but current premium offers are considered too high to attract any business to destinations such as West Africa. Alternative origins in the world market, such as Brazil are proving more economically viable.
