Al Khaleej Sugar restarts production
Dubai, April 23, 2011
Dubai-based Al Khaleej Sugar refinery, one of the largest sugar refineries in the world, said on Saturday it had restarted operations.
"Al Khaleej Sugar refinery has resumed production from today and is expected to produce 6,000 metric tonnes per day," Cyrus Raja, general manager of Al Khaleej, told Reuters.
Al Khaleej shut operations on April 8 due to slow demand.
Al Khaleej had shut down on Feb 1 this year due to the low premium commanded by white sugar over raw sugar but reopened on Feb 28. – Reuters
