Sugar is an important commodity. The demand for sugar consumption has constantly risen in the past few years. In the developing countries, sugar is an important contributor to the economy. 

The following criteria are used to determine project eligibility:

  • Sponsors must have previous experience with sugar and be able to sustain a high level of capital contribution.
  • Expansion/rehabilitation projects are preferred.
  • Cane sugar and rain-fed sugar investments are preferred.
  • Access to efficient processing is crucial.


As of June 30, 2011, IFC's portfolio in this sector was $275 million or 18% of IFC's total agribusiness portfolio.
