THE Fiji Sugar Corporation says the significant improvements in efficiency at mills in the Western Division could result in some changes over the next few years.

Executive chairman Abdul Khan said as a result of improved performance, the FSC was looking at capitalising on the capacity at the Rarawai mill in Ba.

"In regards to the improvements in the various mills, we have made significant gains and that is reflected in the sugar recovery rates and tonnes cane to tonnes sugar or TCTS," he said.

"We will continue with the present strategy of continuous incremental improvements for all mills except at Penang in Rakiraki.

"Our aim is to replace the Penang mill with a syrup mill within two to three years and have that syrup converted into sugar at the Rarawai mill."
