THE low cane supply at Labasa mill has been attributed to the wet weather conditions experienced throughout the country.
FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan said while the conditions impeded harvesting, the farmers were doing reasonably well in terms of producing cane.
"The recent weather condition is not in our favour as it hampers harvesting but at this point, I can say that farmers are doing well in producing cane to the mill," he said.
"We are looking at ways to overcome this issue and we are working closely with the farmers to ensure the supply of cane is consistent."
Commenting on the mill's operations, Mr Khan said they were going well.
"The Labasa mill is operating well and we want to keep it this way, that's why we are doing everything we can to achieve our target come the end of this year's crushing season," Mr Khan said.
It was earlier reported the mill was expected to process about 55,000 tonnes of sugar worth about $55million.
