Quality system

THE cane quality payment system that was scheduled to be run parallel with the pay-by-weight system this year will be conducted next cane season, says Ministry of Sugar permanent secretary Manasa Vaniqi.

He cited a delay in the arrival and installation of equipment and a need for continued awareness with canegrowers as reasons for the deferment.

“We spent $4million on this system but unfortunately, the equipment did not arrive and get installed in time for the crushing season,” Lt-Col Vaniqi said.
