Of the four options for sugar-sector reform, the EU is ruling out the two that would be least unfavourable to ACP countries, but may not move to a complete liberalisation option which would favour suppliers such as Brazil. Nevertheless the 'fall in price' option is likely to reduce the community price to € 290 per tonne, which would cause most ACP suppliers to cease exports to the EU, leaving only five most efficient exporters. An ACP statement has called for support for its producers similar to that offered to European sugar-beet producers.
