Sugar is Unique
The unique nature of America’s sugar industry, the robust sugar supply chain and the flexibility of our no-cost sugar policy proved to be a strategic asset when the COVID-19 pandemic introduced new challenges. America’s sugar policy is unique, too. The world sugar market is grossly distorted by subsidies. But America’s no-cost sugar policy is built on loans repaid with interest – not subsidy checks – which ensures a secure supply of American-made sugar at no cost to taxpayers.
