The newly appointed Fiji Sugar Corporation Chief Executive Officer Bhan Pratap Singh says improvements are required in the entire factory and field operations, plant performance and reliability, sugar recovery as well as improved quantity and quality of cane supplied to the mills.

He says the recent cyclones and flood have impacted the cane farmers and the cane crop as well as some of the infrastructure in the mills and rail systems.

Singh says this is an additional challenge that they will need to best manage.

He says with his adequate level of competence and management capabilities, he is adamant that with the support of the cane growers, government and stakeholders, Fiji’s Sugar Industry will reach newer heights.

Singh had a special meeting with the Permanent Secretary, Office of the Prime Minister and Sugar Yogesh Karan.

Karan says Singh possesses a wealth of experience, and knowledge and is familiar with the mechanics of the Industry.

The Permanent Secretary says Singh has a good network and relationship with the cane growers and stakeholders, which is an added advantage.

Singh is expected to take up office on 22nd March, 2021.

He spent 18 years at FSC starting as Shift Chemist and progressing to Assistant Product Superintendent and then as General Manager with responsibility covering all the mills from 2005 until 2011.

Singh also spent his last two years at FSC as Deputy CEO and General Manager Operations before leaving FSC to become CEO of Pacific Fishing Company.
