Lease meeting

Felix Chaudhary
Saturday, June 14, 2014

THE Sugar Cane Growers Council says it is looking forward to meeting with the traditional landowners of Nawaicoba, one of the most productive sugarcane growing areas in Nadi.

CEO Sundresh Chetty said 72 growers facing imminent expiry of their leases were hoping that talks with landowners would ensure an extension of their leases.

"We have had fruitful discussions with the iTaukei Land Trust Board and would like to see most of these leases renewed because the growers in this area produce between 150 to 200 tonnes each," he said.

TLTB CEO Alipate Qetaki said a number of discussions had been held so far and a meeting between the industry stakeholders and landowners would be convened soon to resolve pending issues.
