LONDON, Oct 23 (Reuters) - ICE raw sugar futures hit an eight-month high on Friday as rains slowed cane crushing in Brazil, while cocoa edged up, supported by better-than-expected grindings data from Asia.
Arabica coffee futures fell to a three-week low as Brazilian rains boosted crop prospects in the world's top producer of coffee and sugar.
ICE March raw sugar was up 0.06 cent, or 0.4 percent, at 14.66 cents per pound at 1108 GMT, after rising as high as 14.73 cents, the loftiest since Feb. 20.
