FIJI produces some of the best quality raw sugar in the world with a value of 98pol (polarisation) compared to the average reading of 96pol.
Fiji Sugar Corporation executive chairman Abdul Khan said the quality of raw sugar was quite high.
"The purity of (Fiji) sugar when measured is always above at 98 plus with the average at 96," he said.
"So, because of that high quality, we receive a premium from our buyers Tate & Lyle."
This, he said, was apart from the normal sugar payment
Mr Khan added that the FSC has set goals to achieve in the new year.
"To do better than what we did this year. It's encouraging to see a lot of people planting cane when we drive around the north which is a good sign.
"But more importantly, the quality of the sugar. If it is of good quality and fresh, extraction becomes a lot easier for the mill."
