All the three sugar mills are prepared for the 2022 crushing season, says Assistant Minister for Sugar, George Vegnathan.

He confirmed that Labasa Mill would begin operations tomorrow, Lautoka mill on June 16 and Rarawai mill on June 17.

“The Government has not left any stone unturned in assisting farmers,” he said.

“The mills are preparing well to begin crushing on time and it’s my humble request for farmers to start harvesting without unnecessary delays.”

“We are expecting a good yield this year.”
He said the timely harvest would ensure that they get maximum cane before the wet season.

“Sugar mills depend on farmers’ support and vice-versa,” Mr Vegnathan said.

“We hope all issues are amicably solved for all to ensure a smooth crushing season and good returns for all parties.”
