FSC pleased

THE Fiji Sugar Corporation says it has crushed a total of 538,000 tonnes of cane and produced 60,000 tonnes of sugar.

Executive chairman Abdul Khan said he was pleased with the performance of the mills and cane supply from growers that resulted in the outstanding result.

"If you look at where we were for the same period last year, the industry is performing significantly well," Mr Khan said.

"In the same period last season, it took 9.9 tonnes of cane to produce one tonne of sugar but this time around, we have managed to improve efficiency to the stage where it only takes 9 tonnes of cane to produce one tonne of sugar on average."

Mr Khan pegged the reasons for the improvement on increased milling efficiency along with good quality and consistent cane delivery.

The FSC has projected a total crush of about two million tonnes of cane and the production of between 210,000 to 215,000 tonnes of sugar for this season.
