The article focuses on the shortage of the supply of sugar in Pakistan. This is attributed to the fragmentation of the sugar sector in the country which has resulted from the political conflict among Pakistanis. It is noted that wholesalers are forced to hoard stocks and to increase the prices of the products which caused the fluctuation in the retail consumption. Sugar millers have also terminated their business operations including Pakistan Sugar Mills Association chairman Iskander Khan.
