DEMAND for brown rice has increased.
Rewa Rice Ltd board chairman Raj Sharma said what used to be half a tonne supply to the market in Suva every month has doubled to one tonne per month.
And the company is now supplying six tonnes of brown rice to Viti Levu and 30 tonnes to Vanua Levu every month.
He said the high demand shows the good performance of the company.
"We have turned this company around with a good performance and discipline, cost cutting measures and also brought in some discipline," Mr Sharma said.
"With all that done and a bit of changes including a new mill manager, we have done well and changed the performance of the company.
"We have made historic changes and working closely with the Ministry of Agriculture and other stakeholders, including farmers."
Mr Sharma said millers needed to be committed to the operations of the company.
