The Ministry of Sugar Industry was established as a new Ministry in 2011 to develop policies and implement reforms through various capital projects that benefit over 12,500 active cane farmers.
The establishment of a dedicated Ministry provides an enabling environment for direct efficient delivery of services to the stakeholders, cane districts and sectors in sugarcane belt areas.
The adoption of ‘professional’ service delivery by the Ministry promotes maximum sugarcane and sugar production annually through increased investments in cane farming, research & development, harvesting, transportation, milling and marketing opportunities to increase income for both growers and miller.
Through these projects, the Ministry provides subsidies and grant assistance to reduce input costs of cane production, plant cane to increase cane production and yield, upgrade cane access roads to enhance efficiency in transportation, promote farm mechanization to improve land preparation and harvesting systems, transfer and promote adoption of modern technologies and encourage sustainable land management to mitigate climate resilient.
The Ministry of Sugar Industry is responsible for implementing key policies and plans consistent with Government programs to achieve higher economic growth whilst ensuring tangible sustainability of Fiji’s sugar industry.
