in the sugar harvest at the Boris Luis Santa Coloma

The Boris Luis mill has ground sugar
cane at a rate of above 85% over 15 days, ten points
above the programmed rate, and the industrial yield
is at 8.37%, with a marked tendency to increase,
affirmed Rodolfo Florido, mill director.
He said that the mill had also begun
packing sugar for domestic distribution, and
manufacturing byproducts used for animal feed, as
part of diversifying the mill’s economic activity.
In relation to the present sugar
harvest, the principal repairs were completed in

The capital reparation of filters;
assembly of a new centrifuge; preparation of the
final molasses tank; and improvements in the
warehouse were among the central works carried out
during the period immediately prior to the start-up
of the milling process.
According to Florido, the
combination of all these factors, both agricultural
and industrial, will make it possible to once again
meet the production target.
Machado Ventura was accompanied
during his tour of the mill by Juan Miguel García
Díaz, first secretary of the Party in Mayabeque
province; Orlando García Ramírez, president of the
Azcuba Sugar Group; and other provincial leaders.
