FSC works with farmers to avoid cane shortage

By SALASEINI MOCEIWAI

Update: 1:24PM CANE supply to the Labasa Mill is slowly improving now that the Fiji Sugar Corporation is closely working with the farmers to ensure efficient delivery and increased cane production.

FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan this morning says while they continue to experience shortage of supply this week, they are working towards normalising the supply of cane to the mill.

"The good thing is that we are all working together to improve the cane supply," he said.

"We are working with the farmers, potential cane cutters and lorry operators to get more people to harvest cane. Also, we are working on more efficient turn around of lorries and rail trucks."
