This article analyzes the changes in the structure and trade of sugar and alcohol production at Center-South region of Brazil in the 90s. The data demonstrate that this sector showed a process of great product differentiation and modernization in their plants over the past 10 years. It is not just a 'Sugarcane Complex' given the enormous diversity of production units, mix of products and forms of commercialization which are related to this sector. Since the de-regulation, specific and heterogeneous segments appeared. We propose that the difficulties faced for a possible implementation of a whole intervention policy has occurred in the former period. Finally, an agenda of public policies is proposed addressing the needs for competitiveness, environmental preservation and creation of jobs.
