SUA Welcomes USTR Reallocation of Unused Raw Sugar TRQs

The Sweetener Users Association (SUA) today welcomed a decision by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) to reallocate unused country-specific quota allocations under the tariff-rate quotas (TRQs) on imported raw cane sugar for fiscal year (FY) 2023. SUA had previously asked USTR and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for a reallocation to help U.S. food and beverage manufacturers meet demand during a time of historically tight sugar supplies.
