Fiji may be looking at producing white sugar with the demand for the commodity high in Europe and the United States.

Fiji Live reports this was discussed at a meeting between a Fiji delegation led by interim Agriculture Minister Joketani Cokanasiga and Fiji's sugar brokers Czarnikow Group Ltd in London last week.

The possibility of obtaining added value in the EU market, through manufacturing and marketing white sugar rather than raw sugar was discussed.
