Supply issue

Repeka Nasiko
Saturday, April 19, 2014

THE stoppage of sugar cane supply to the Labasa mill in the weekends is an issue that will be addressed with the mechanisation of cane harvesting.

Labasa mill manager Christopher Karia said cane supply on Sundays was an issue that cost the FSC a lot of money.

"Usually what happens is that cane cutters rest on Sundays which ultimately affects supply to the mill," he said.

"We have to close the mill because there is very low supply of cane to the mills.

"It costs a lot of money when a mill stops crushing during the week, so this is a problem that we have been facing for quite some time.

"We can't really ask people to work on Sundays, so the new harvesters will really provide the manpower that we need to keep the mills open on Sundays."
