We have seen that the Sugar Industry in Pakistan plays an important role when we talk about the economy of the country. For the information, it is the second largest industry right after textiles. We used to have only two sugar factories at the time of independence. We then started to import sugar. But later on, it was the Government of Pakistan that setup and created a commission so that scheme can be devised for the development of sugar industry. The very first sugar mill was established in the Sindh province. Right now, in 2016, we have so far 76 sugar mills that have been operating in Pakistan. This sugar industry is the 2nd largest industry that comes after textile.
Exact figures are not come, approximately this industry produce 5.7-6.2 million tons Sugar in 2016. This is handsome production if it will complete with quality.
