Fiji: cane farmers to get paid by friday: fsc

The Fiji Sugar Corporation reminds all cane growers of the special and final cane payment to sugar cane growers who delivered cane in the 2016 crop year, of $3.05 per tonne. This is the final cane payment in respect of the 2016 season crop, and will be paid out on January 12, 2018. The final cane price payable for the 2016 season (including this top-up) will thus increase to $82 per tonne compared to $76.66 per tonne in the 2015 season.

This special 2016 cane top-up payment would be a further support for cane farmers flowing from the ongoing commitment assured by the Prime Minister and Minister of i-Taukei Affairs, Sugar Industry and Foreign Affairs, Voreqe Bainimarama.
