Sugar prices rise in ctg markets

from daily star, by Dwaipayan Barua Sugar prices have gone up in most of the kitchen markets in the port city because of a supply crunch in the Khatunganj wholesale market.

Price of sugar increased by Tk 3 to Tk 5 a kg to Tk 66-68 a kg in the retail markets in the last three days, which was Tk 62-63 on Wednesday. Retailers have blamed a shortage of supply from the dealers in the Khatunganj wholesale hub for the increase in the price of the sweetener.
