The possible and potential benefits flowing from this project include:

  • Multiple products: Removal of the dependency by feed stock producers on a single product (sugar crystal) for financial viability.
  • Equity participation: The opportunity for feed stock producers and the supporting community to participate in equity in the project
  • Employment opportunities: Local employment opportunities will be increased during the 52 weeks of the year. Current milling operations are traditionally seasonal based.
  • Local population stability: Decrease in number of families seeking to leave the district because of lack of full time employment opportunities, thereby helping sustain the local economy.
