What is White Sugar?

Refined sugar of a beet or cane origin that has been processed to contain almost pure sucrose (generally 99.8% sucrose). Raw cane sugar is processed into white sugar during refining. Beet sugar factories produce white sugar as part of the process (i.e. there is no intermediate raw sugar stage).

What is Raw sugar?

 Brown cane sugar produced in a raw sugar mill generally destined for further processing to white sugar in a refinery.

What is Polarisation (or POL)?

Polarisation (or pol). The apparent sucrose content is expressed as a mass percent measured by the optical rotation of polarized light passing through a sugar solution. Raw sugar is usually specified at 96 degrees polarisation, with white sugar at 99.8 degrees polarisation (=99.8% sucrose).  POL is an approximate measure of the sucrose content of the sugar. Polarisation is measured by preparing a standard solution from the sugar and measuring the optical rotation of polarised light passing through a cell containing the solution. Sugar of 98 degrees pol would contain about 98% sucrose.

What is VHP Sugar?

VHP sugar means Very High Polarisation raw sugar that is typically in excess 99.3% sucrose.

What is International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis (ICUMSA)?

International Commission for Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis (ICUMSA). A world-wide body which brings together the activities of the National Committees for Sugar Analysis in more than thirty member countries. ICUMSA is the only international organisation concerned solely with analytical methods for the sugar industry. The ICUMSA colour scale (polarisation) is used to measure the grade and quality of the sugar. The colour of sugar directly relates to the degree of refining – raw sugars being dark brown in colour while highly refined sugars are white in colour.

What is EU sugar regime?

EU sugar regime. In 2006 a major reform achieved simplification and greater market orientation of the EU's sugar policy. The total EU production quota of 13.5 million tonnes of sugar is divided between nineteen Member States, of which the UK’s share is 1.056mt. Around 3.5mt is imported into the EU, mainly for refining and to complete the EU’s requirements. Production in excess of the quota (e.g. ICE or surplus in the UK) is known as "out-of-quota" sugar and strict rules govern its use. In 2007 the World Trade Organisation (WTO) placed a limit of 1.374 million tonnes of sugar that could be exported from the EU. There is also a small quota of 0.72 million tonnes for the competing sweetener isoglucose (also known as High Fructose Corn Syrup, or HFCS).

Exports of sugar produced in the EU will now be allowed although imports will still be limited at the existing levels. The minimum beet price of €26.29 and the reference price of €404/t for white sugar will also end.

What is EU White Sugar Price?

EU white sugar price. The average white sugar price as reported by sugar companies across the EU and reported by the EU Commission. It is published approximately two months in arrears and shows prices for white sugar and industrial white sugar. As a result the EU sugar price is not a spot price. It is an average of all prices for sugar delivered across the EU for the period in question. As some of these prices may have originated in contracts up to a year old, the EU sugar price tends to lag the major sugar price indices.

What is Futures Contract.?

Futures contract. An agreement to buy or sell a fixed amount of a commodity at a fixed price and at a fixed date in the future. For a futures contract to exist, one party has to agree to buy and take delivery while the other party has to agree to sell and supply the commodity. This obligation may be discharged by a reverse paper transaction (with some other person in the market). The futures market may be used for hedging or for speculative purposes. For sugar two major contracts set the world prices for raw and white sugar - New York No. 11 for raw and London No. 5 for white. Prices for these contracts are usually quoted up to about 18 months ahead.

What is Open Interest?

Open Interest. Refers to the total number outstanding of derivative (i.e. futures) contracts that have not yet been settled by physical delivery or closed out prior to contract expiration.

What is High Fructose Corn Syrup (Isoglucose) HFCS?

It is a direct competitor with sugar in the USA, where its principal use in soft drinks began in the 1980s. Its use in the EU (where it is known as isoglucose) is limited to a 0.7mt annual quota.

Past Performance/Transactions and Proof of Products

POP (Proof of Product) against POF (Proof of Funds) via MT-799 only. 

A-1 OVERSEAS does not provide history of past transactions/performance, Proof of Past Performance (POP) as this is against the law and contract rules established between seller and buyer, (Non-Circumvention, Non-Disclosure, and Confidentiality Agreement)  NCNDA and/or IMFPA (Irrevocable Master Fee Protection Agreement) of ICC -  of International Chamber of Commerce.

Many documents are used fraudulently, therefore we cannot disclose the past performance nor provide any copy of SGS inspection, certificates of origin and others.

We and our counterparts, customers, clients had many problems with documents used illegally by companies / brokers who are acting in the international sugar market.

A-1 OVERSEAS does not provide proof of product anytime before contract signature and bank to bank swift with proof of funds.

Therefor for legal and confidential purposes, we do not provide historical data from other buyers, such as invoices for past shipments, Bills of Lading, invoices from shippers, reports from SGS, laboratory tests, Performance Bonds, Proof of Product (POP), contracts, etc., or any sample document that violates the rules of the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce) and can be plagiarized or falsified.

The real Proof of Product will be presented by the Seller’s bank to the Buyer’s bank at the specified time in the Procedures looking at the situation that time.

Please do not insist as we understand any communication that is not bank to bank has no value either for us or for the buyer/customer/client. We respect our clients but simultaneously we also expect them to follow certain rules to make things feasible for the system.

POP (Proof of Product) against POF (Proof of Funds) via MT-799 only. 

Why you shouldn't rely on POP OR Why we can't issue POP to our Buyer?

It's often believed by the customers that ICUMSA 45 or Raw Brown Sugar or any other sugar from Brazil is stored in the bigger warehouse. But such storage increases the cost of sugar quoted to the buyer. 

Actually a client/importer/buyer buys a Future Batch of Brazilian or of any origin sugar in our affiliated Sugar Mill/Plant/Refinery or at the mandate suppliers. Production of sugar begins after Buyer's Bank issues payment instrument SBLC or submits by direct bank transfer or TT or wire transfer.

So it's incorrect to believe on any warehouse receipt as POP for the latest produce from the Plant/Mill.
