THINGS ARE SWEET IN SHUGGAH LAND AS SUGAR CANE CROP SESON OFFICIALLY COMMENCES

The sugar crop finally commenced this morning after stakeholders closed a rather tumultuous negotiation which lasted well over two years. The crop though starts late, two days later than last year’s crop and at a time when the sugar cane production is even higher than any other year. This then translates into concerns for stakeholders in the industry. Notwithstanding that, today was a day to celebrate for BSI/ASR, government officials and farmers as the sugar impasse is finally over with the factory’s opening day at the Mills for deliveries.
