The Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC) is looking at crushing 2 million tonnes of sugar cane this year.

Speaking to FijiLive, FSC chair Abdul Khan said earlier their estimates for April was 1.75m tonnes but the good weather means they are expecting to achieve 2m tonnes.

“We had a lot of hiccups last year but things are starting to look fine this year and we are anticipating a good year for the sugar industry,” he said.

He said they will be having their maintenance meeting soon to see how work at the four mills is progressing.

The crushing season is expected to begin in June.
