* Coming up: Brazil Unica cane crush data due at 1300 GMT
* NY July/September cocoa spread narrows
By David Brough and Nigel Hunt
LONDON, June 1 (Reuters) - Raw sugar futures on ICE fell on
Wednesday before Brazilian cane data expected to show a strong
crush for the first half of May, while cocoa eased in
Coffee steadied, supported by concerns over a poor Brazilian
robusta (conillon) harvest.
Raw sugar dipped, moving away from Tuesday's 23-month peak,
supported by a shift to a global deficit.
Dealers awaited Brazilian data from cane industry group
Unica at 1300 GMT, expected to show a rapid crush in early May.
"We expect that the data will show a continued strong
harvest in the first half of May. Our guess is that it will be
close to 40 million tonnes of cane," said Tom McNeill, director
of Green Pool Commodities.
