In 2003 we entered the sugar industry by embarking in sugar processing under the management of Consolidated Farming Limited, a 100 % subsidiary of Sable Transport Limited. Kafue Sugar is established at a 9,000 hectare estate with the processing mill along the banks of the Kafue River. The sugar plant currently employs approximately 1,500 people. This includes estate area managers, marketing managers, commercial managers, section managers, and irrigation engineers.
We currently hold a 30% share of the sugar industry in Zambia, with the remainder being held by Ilovo Sugar. As a result of our investment, for the first time in Zambia's history, out grower farmers are getting a better price for their sugar and local pricing of sugar is now subject to competition which is healthy for the local population and economy.
Farming ventures operated include sugar production and milling, commercial farming of maize, soya beans, and wheat, and cattle farming. The farms are located in Lusaka and Sinda and cover a total of 18,400 hectares.
The farms are well equipped with in-house agricultural machinery to include tractors, harrows, ploughs, sprayers and harvesters.
