Players of the Federation

In order to strengthen the framework for dialogue and cooperation, improve national productivity and ensure business continuity, the sugar sector has undertaken substantive reforms, the first stage of which was the reorganization. Morocco’s Inter-Professional Federation of Sugar (FIMASUCRE) was established in June 2007 with a view to bringing together the agricultural and industrial players in the sector.
