Mill ends crush

Salaseini Vosamana
Tuesday, October 16, 2012

THE Fiji Sugar Corporation Labasa mill will today end its 2012 crushing season with the hope of improving its production next year.

Mill manager Karia Christopher confirmed this yesterday, saying they have managed to crush more than 400,000 tonnes of sugar cane this year.

"By today, we expect to produce about 45,000 tonnes of sugar and we will be organising a big celebration on Friday to mark another successful crushing season," Mr Karia said.

Last week, he said the mill had produced the highest tonnage of sugar in the country with about 38,000 tonnes of sugar produced.

"Lautoka mill records the second with about 29,000 tonnes, Rarawai mill in Ba comes in third with about 25,000 tonnes and Penang mill in Rakiraki with about 16,000 tonnes," he said. Mr Karia said even though the mill was old, it operated normally this year and with some maintenance work, it would achieve international crushing standards.
