Dubai Sugar Refinery Resumes Shipping to Iraq

By John Lee.

Dubai’s Al Khaleej Sugar Refinery has resumed exports to Iraq after disruption last summer due to the conflict with Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL).

The company is exporting about 600,000 to 800,000 tonnes a year to Iraq, making the country its biggest customer. “We have four vessels queuing in Umm Qasr. It usually takes a month to offload,” the refinery’s general manager Riad el Ferkh said.
