MAINTENANCE work in the three sugar mills on Viti Levu — Lautoka, Rarawai in Ba and Penang in Rakiraki — are going according to schedule, says FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan.

"The progress at all the Viti Levu mills in terms of maintenance and preparation for the coming season is going well and we are on program to commence the season in early June," he said.

During recent consultations with sugar industry stakeholders, canegrowers across the West commented on the mill improvements over the past two years.

Many said they were looking forward to increasing efficiencies in the factories this season.

A total of 1.61million tonnes of cane were crushed last year, producing 179,870 tonnes of sugar giving an average tonnes cane to tonnes sugar (TCTS) of 8.95.
