Fiscal–year data relate to 12-month period ending in June of current year.

Total crop from harvest beginning approximately one month before the start of the fiscal year indicated, less the output in June immediately before the indicated fiscal year, plus the June output of the next crop, most of which is produced in the next fiscal year.

The Special Preferential Sugar Agreement was signed on June 1, 1995, between Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) sugar–supplying countries and the European Union to compensate for the European cane refiners’ deficit for the six years to 2001. It provides Mauritius with the right to export a variable tonnage of approximately 80,000 tons of sugar.
