exporting sugar to europe
I have a friend of mine who has a few companies in Turkey that are interested in purchasing a fair amount of sugar. I will be relocating to DR by the end of this year and since i know that DR is one of the top sugar exporters in the world i was wondering if any one has any USEFUL information on EXPORTING. thanks in advance
yes, i have some good advice for you. FORGET IT.

Sugar is cheaper in Europe
Yes, consider yourself an ant in the world of anteaters!
there are only two types of sugar produced on a mass basis in the DR. one is cream sugar, the light brown stuff, and the other is the refined white sugar. the excess unrefined cream sugar all goes to the USA, by arrangement. on the refined side, not one ounce is exported. you cannot get it. if you could, i would be rich, since i tried to source 250,000 tons for a middle eastern concern, and the commission would have been sweet. you just cannot get it. FORGET IT.
Gorgon: THank you for your posts. Some people think that this country is what? Some sort of Utopia, up in the air and away from the rest of the world>>>??? Sheesh!! And then they say we are harsh...nasty. No, we are not! Not at all.
But can you imagine even thinking that you can come into a country that has lived by exporting coffee, sugar, tobacco, and cacao for more than a hundred years and waltz in and purchase product??? Where the #$% are their heads? They think that because they have a few pennies that they can buy whatever it is that they want...They never heard of Commodity markets???
Man oh man...welcome to the Shark Tank...
