Commentary for February RV Price:

The RV price payable at the end of February 2018 in respect of cane deliveries up to end of January 2018, was declared at R4 249.68 per ton. This represents a decrease of R42.46 per RV ton compared with the January 2018 price. The large drop in the RV Price is due to the firmer weighted average R/US$ exchange rate (13.00 vs 13.19), a decrease in the LMDE of 18 419 tons and a drop in the weighted average No.11 world market price (US15.58c/lb vs. US15.81c/lb). Imported sugar volumes continue to be low since the tariff implementation, but pipeline stocks continue to impact on local sugar sales, with January 2018 sales also significantly below estimate. There has also been decreased demand from sugar sweetened beverage manufacturers, in response to the forthcoming implementation of the Health Promotion Levy in April 2018.
