Sugar prices at the Vashi wholesale market ruled mixed, while naka and mill tender rates lost ₹10 a quintal on Friday. Producers continued selling at prevailing prices and lifting pressure on traders kept the market under pressure. Arrivals and local dispatches remained at par with routine volumes. Morale was weak, said sources.

Arrivals were about 40 – 42 and truck loads (of 10 tonnes each) and local dispatches were at the same level. Inventories at terminal market were about 95-100 loads. Freight rates were steady at ₹80 – 100 per bag.
