Leaders from the American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Farmers Union (NFU) today pledged their continued support of U.S. sugar policy.
“Bears remain firmly in the driving seat,” the executive director of the International Sugar Organization said today of the global sugar market.
“A reliable, affordable, homegrown sugar supply is in the public interest, and no-cost sugar policy makes it all possible.”
Despite nearly 5 years of declining prices, makers of candy, cakes, cookies and other sweet treats never lowered prices for grocery shoppers.
Sugar producers took the time to address lawmakers during a recent Farm Bill listening session in Minnesota.
