Gujarat Sugar Industry

Gujarat sugar industry forms a major part of the sugar industry in India. It is a part of the agro based industries in the country and contributes a significant portion to the gross domestic product of the country. In fact, India is the second largest producer of sweets in the world and a number of varieties of sweet products are manufactured in various sugar mills of Gujarat and exported to other countries across the world.

Growth of sugar Industry in India



Gujarat is one of the well known sugar cane producing regions in India. This has been one of the reasons for the growth of sugar industry in the state. After independence, the government gave importance to the growth of sugarcane farming in the state and established a number of sugar cane mills. After the market liberalization policies took place in the 1990s, the export of the sugar industry increased to a great extent.

Due to the growth of technology, newer methods have been implemented which has increased the production of sugar. Today, the sugar mills in Gujarat are equipped with an array of hi-tech facilities and services which make them a known name in the field of agro based industries.

Today, there are around 554 sugar mills and factories in the state of Gujarat. It must be noted in this respect that almost all of the Gujarat Sugar Industry is under a state cooperative system where the government partly controls the production and the business. However, there are also a number of sugar mills which are privately owned. Out of the 554 sugar mills, most of them are covered under the co operative system. According to the recent surveys, the total amount of production of sugar in the state is around 190 lakh metric tons.
