products. During the last couple of years India has produced more than 300 MMT of
sugarcane out of which, about 79.91 % is utilized in producing white sugar, 11.29% in
producing jaggery and khandsari, 8.80 % as cane juice, seed cane for the next harvest
etc. Sugar recovery for different states in India lies in the range of 8.89 to 11.26% on
cane, whereas, recovery of jaggery (gur) ranges from 10-13% depending upon the

jaggery. This sector provides employment to about 2.5 million people. It is therefore,
imperative to expand the sector, as it provides higher food value jaggery at lower cost
and boosts-up the rural economic system, involving low transportation cost of raw
material, and non requirement of highly technical machinery and labour. Jaggery still
dominates in preparation of various traditional products like reori, gazak, chikki, patti
and ramdana, etc. Kakavi (liquid jaggery) is part of daily diet in most parts of
