However, it is still optimistic that production of the current crop will be completed by the end of July. 
 
During the month of May, all Caribbean sugar producers were in production, with Belize topping the list with 23,628 tonnes, followed by Guyana with 15,178 tonnes, Jamaica with 10,198 tonnes and Barbados 5,673 tonnes.
 
The year-to-date sugar production up to the end of May stood at 337,116 tonnes, with Guyana leading the way, followed by Belize, Jamaica and Barbados.
