Skeldon factory starting to deliver, Ramsammy says
– on course to surpass production target
The Skeldon sugar factory is likely to surpass its target of 34,000 tonnes of sugar this year, Agriculture Minister Dr Leslie Ramsammy said yesterday.
The flagship investment by the government has come in for criticism since its commissioning but Ramsammy noted during a visit to the facility yesterday that it is now demonstrating its potential despite challenges.
He said that from the perspective of the government and the management of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), the factory is going to be one that will lead Guyana’s aspirations “to reach and exceed” a production level of 400,000 tonnes of sugar per year.
