The African continent accounts for around 6% of global sugar output, half of which is concentrated in COMESA countries – a figure that is set to expand to 8% by 2029. While local production takes place on a relatively small scale, countries in the region are among the world's largest net exporters. Looking ahead, the industry's continued development will be supported by the Africa Continental Free Trade Area, which will help facilitate continental trade by reducing or eliminating tariff and non-tariff barriers. However, establishing supportive and sustainable ecosystems and regulatory frameworks will also be necessary to improve competitiveness and boost yields. 

The Sugar in Africa Focus Report was produced in partnership with the International Sugar Organisation, the African Sugar Task Force, the Royal Eswatini Sugar Corporation, the Zimbabwe Sugar Association and the Moroccan sugar company, Cosumar.
