Capacity utilisation and financial health of a sugar factory big and small


, : Capacity utilisation and financial health of a sugar factory big and small. SISSTA Sugar Journal 15(4): M29-M36

A method of calculating the conditions for optimum capacity utilization, and hence maximum profitability, of a cane sugar factory is outlined. The milling season should start as soon as the predicted sugar recovery (% cane) becomes enough to cover the variable costs of cane processing. The total quantity of cane available must obviously exceed the break-even point for covering costs at the expected recovery.
