Progress pleases miller

CRUSHING at all three mills on Viti Levu is progressing well, says the Fiji Sugar Corporation.

Executive chairman Abdul Khan said a few hiccups at the beginning of cane processing at Lautoka and Penang had been resolved.

"Some of the issues we thought might show up during the live trials did not.

"But we have addressed these and the mills are operating quite well," he said.

"We had a problem at Lautoka this week but we managed to get it fixed by midday Thursday."

Mr Khan said cane supply to the Lautoka mill, Rarawai in Ba and Penang in Rakiraki had been consistent since crushing began.

"I am very pleased with the supply and I hope this continues throughout the season."

The FSC has projected a total crush of two million tonnes of cane and an estimated production of 210,000 to 215,000 tonnes of sugar this year.
