The Komenda Sugar Factory will start production on Tuesday, November 29, although it would take up to a week to start the actual production of sugar.
Management of the company says it would require about 185,000 metric tons of sugar cane to produce for the next one year’s production cycle.
However, the $35.5 million company is sure of the availability of only 45, 000 metric tons of sugar cane, which will run out by April 2017.
President John Mahama commissioned the factory on May 30 this year which was supposed to provide some 7,000 jobs for people. It, however, had to close down shortly after commissioning for maintenance.
At Joy News’ last visit to the site, maintenance works were still ongoing with the area around the facility all grown with weeds.
