Summary Sugar is a major crop for many less developed countries, but major barriers exist to its international trade. Both the EU and US distort the world sugar market through various internal policies. With the growth in production of other sweeteners such as high fructose corn syrup, the controversy surrounding international sweetener markets has further increased. This book addresses these issues and reviews world sweetener markets, with particular chapters devoted to important players such as the US and EU, as well as other producers such as Australia, Brazil, Cuba, Eastern Europe and India. Topics such as international trade negotiations, trade liberalization, US policy reform, and regional integration in Latin America and the Caribbean are also addressed.
