What are facts about sugar?


On behalf of all the other sugar producers of the world Dr Peter Baron the International Sugar Organisation congratulates our Minister for Sugar for his efforts in supporting the world price of sugar by halving exports from Fiji.

Abdul Khan has told Sugaronline Weekly Newsletter that Labasa mill is now working at 96 % reliability and needing only 8.8 tonnes of cane to produce a tonne of sugar. It would be nice if this was true but sugar farmers speaking to American Ambassador Frankie Reed told a different story. They said “the mill experienced 228 hours of operation compared with 226 hours last year.” In other words no change. Real facts about sugar are hard to come by. According to the FSC website “Over 75,000 hectares are cultivated for sugar cane on the two main islands” but the Fiji Bureau of Statistics reports that the area is 46000 hectares. Full figures showing the state of our sugar industry have not been published for years. Our so-called Sugar Minister has halved the industry and is resorting to lies to hide his criminal neglect of the industry.

    There is something wrong with the numbers. 226 or 228 hours is less than 10 full days.

    The mill was running for much longer.

    Guess putting false infor is what the blog is famous of!
