The Rarawai Mill’s good performance since sugarcane crushing began two weeks ago has seen a great progress in the multiple dumping of cane into the carrier by trucks.

With the full yard laden with trucks loaded ready to offload their cane, the indications are good for the Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC) – in that farmers were harvesting their produce and transporting them to the mills on time for crushing.

FSC chief operating officer Navin Chandra said: “I spent Saturday at the Rarawai Mill and have received very complementary feedback from lorry drivers there on how the mill is performing.

“Credit goes to the Mill General Manager and his team on a solid turnaround for Rarawai Mill.

“The Lautoka Mill is crushing on Sunday and number of text messages is being sent to lorry drivers to continue to supply cane so we can crush as much as possible,” he said.

As of 11am yesterday, Mr Chandra said when he went to Lautoka Mill yard, there were only 10 lorries and many rail trucks which would keep them going till the afternoon.

“It is important that FSC staff and management team are working around the clock to ensure we have the best crushing season and we are committed to ensure that it happens,” Mr Chandra said.

“We encourage anyone with concerns to contact us via our hotline 08006661972 or directly as we have the ability to work through any concerns.

“I encourage all to continue to be positive and work as one to make the sugar industry number one again,” he said.
