Zafranet is the number one website specializing in the Mexican sugar market. We are an independent website which publishes the latest sugar and sweetener information from domestic markets. We offer data from an analytical perspective so as give the user a range of in-depth information which will assist in the making of important decisions.
Zafranet publishes daily and weekly English reports on cane crushing during the October to September cycle. On a daily basis the Zafranet team updates prices and quotes from the different Mexican markets and calculates the average national price. In our different sections you will also find sugar balances, statistics, daily floor prices at the main supply centers of Mexico, wholesale, FOB Mill, sugar futures and high fructose corn sugar quotes as well as the closing of the main stock indexes, agro commodities and exchange rates.
Zafranet.com was created mid-2006 as a response to the sugar cane industry’s information and statistics needs. Primarily it offers an analysis of the industry by publishing topics of most interest and value to the sugar sector.
Behind this ambitious project is a crew of professionals who have maintained a close relationship with the sugar industry for many years, and who have now joined forces to impart information and analysis to our site.
