FROM night gowns to jeans and sneakers, the Queen and King contestants of the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North were taken to the sugar mill today and briefed about the importance of the sugar industry.

Among them was FSC chief operations manager Navin Chandra who enlightened the young group about positive and great progress done by the Labasa mill this crushing season.

“The Labasa mill has improved quite a lot and everyday we try to do better than the previous day or the previous week,” Mr Chandra said.

The contestants were excited as they walked through the mill that also employed members of their respective families.
