Sugar crop has rebounded after rough start, says BSI/ASR

By Aaron Humes: According to Shawn Chavarria, Director of Finance for Belize Sugar Industries Limited/American Sugar Refining (BSI/ASR), things have been going well enough with the 2021-2022 sugar cane crop.

After a rough start with a temporary interruption of grinding at Tower Hill due to the stand-off between BSI/ASR and the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association (BSCFA), the early crop that sat in trucks for nearly a week had lost quality but was still accepted, said Chavarria.

BSI was also operating on one boiler as a result of its air emissions control upgrade on the second boiler.

Since then, aided by good weather and the second boiler coming onboard, production has markedly improved.

BSI is looking forward to a smooth season with minimal interruptions and issues. More on this later.
