The Fiji Sugar Corporation spent more than $70million towards the upkeep of its ageing mills in the past five years.

The Corporation stated that that commitment to excellence extended to targeted investments in the sugar mills to enhance reliability and optimise throughput.

It stated that with a legacy of more than 130 years old of infrastructure, the company “continues to embrace progress”.

“FSC is dedicated to achieving efficient milling operations, focusing on reducing breakdowns, increasing sugar recovery rates, implementing industry[1]leading good manufacturing and hygiene practices, and elevating sugar quality to the highest standards,” the FSC stated.

“Moreover, FSC is implementing a structured capital works and preventative maintenance program, underscoring a proactive approach to sustainably maintaining the facilities.

“These strategic investments are a testament to our dedication to providing the best possible outcomes for the stakeholders and the industry as a whole.”
