Another Year, Same Three Old Guys
Paul Farmer, President CSC Sugar/Sugaright, will reunite with Bill O’Conner of Watkinson Miller PLLC and Jack Roney of the American Sugar Alliance to once again give his unique perspective on current U.S. sugar policy and how political influence increases the price food manufacturers must ultimately pay for this critical commodity.
U.S. sugar policy remains the largest factor shaping the domestic sugar market. Whether adhering to the federal sugar program or the U.S.-Mexico suspension agreements, sugar buyers are faced with market-bending quantity restrictions and government-established price floors that limit options and oftentimes dictate actions. The panel will review the market situation today and discuss the likelihood of any changes to U.S. sugar policy in the future.
