Yep another head scratcher! Us just ban largest importer of sugar because rumors of forced labor! Look away at Nike because it’s a kick back company! Any way to make prices go up seems to be the normal lately

I quit sugar

it was a great life decision I feel better than I had in years

sugar is not good for you in the quantities that are so so so easy to get

1 20oz pop is 130% of your daily sugar most people probably get >500% of the sugar they should in a day

that causes so many health issues.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

But using slave and child labor to mine rare earth elements in 3rd world countries for EV batteries is fine.

U.S. Blocks Dominican Republic Sugar Imports, Citing Forced Labor

An import ban targets sugar from Central Romana Corporation, a behemoth whose sugar is sold under the Domino brand.

Nov. 23, 2022




WASHINGTON — The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it would block shipments of sugar from Central Romana Corporation, a Dominican Republic company that produces sugar sold in the United States under the Domino brand and that has long faced allegations of subjecting its workers to poor labor conditions.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued what is known as a withhold release order against the company “based on information that reasonably indicates the use of forced labor in its operations,” including abusive working and living conditions, excessive overtime, withheld wages and other violations.

“Manufacturers like Central Romana, who fail to abide by our laws, will face consequences as we root out these inhumane practices from U.S. supply chains,” AnnMarie R. Highsmith, the executive assistant commissioner of the agency’s Office of Trade, said in a statement.

Central Romana responded that it was “very disappointed” by the decision and that it had been investing significantly for years to improve the living conditions of its employees.




“We disagree vehemently with the decision as we do not believe it reflects the facts about our company and the treatment of our employees,” it said in a statement on Wednesday.


Central Romana, which is the largest landholder and employer in the Dominican Republic, exports more than 200 million pounds of sugar to the United States each year. It is owned partly by the Fanjul family, an influential force in U.S. politics for decades as key donors to both Republicans and Democrats.

The measures have been the subject of an intense debate on Capitol Hill, where profits from the sugar industry are funneled into generous campaign contributions and lobbying expenditures, according to people familiar with the discussions who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The United States is the most important market for Dominican sugar, and the move could have a crippling effect on Central Romana, which alone produces roughly 59 percent of the Dominican Republic’s sugar, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

It could also cause significant disruptions to U.S. sugar imports in the near term, though economists said the impact on sugar prices, which are heavily influenced by regulation, remained to be seen. Those regulations include price supports that keep U.S. sugar prices far above those on world markets, as well as preferential tariff rates for sugar imported from the Dominican Republic.




Charity Ryerson, the executive director at Corporate Accountability Lab, a Chicago-based human rights organization, said the restrictions would be a powerful impetus for Central Romana to improve conditions for its workers.

“Central Romana has been on notice for years but has failed to comply with even the most basic of labor and human rights standards in their operation,” she said. “From this moment forward, we have a really significant opportunity for C.B.P., for Central Romana and civil society to work together to ensure that workers are free, they’re treated fairly and that forced labor never happens on these farms again.”

Besides punishing the Fanjul brothers ,they need to punish Dominica , because they don't want Haitians in.

Funny thing is we will keep buying stuff from China no matter what. China says they are doing everything legal. Honest!!

Romana must have ticked some democrat bureaucrat off or missed a hush payment.
