Kagera Sugar Limited (KSL), located in the North-Western part of Tanzania (close to the Tanzania-Uganda border) was acquired by Supergroup from the Government of Tanzania in December 2001. Sugarcane growing and the production of sugar are KSL's main activities. KSL takes advantage of its geographical location along the Kagera River as its source of water for irrigation. KSL has heavily invested on the Centre Pivot Irrigation System, the high-tech Reel Irrigators as well as Overhead Sprinklers.
The functional status of the sugar factory remains one of KSL's key success factors. The Management makes sure that after each pruduction season, the factory undergoes thourough maintenance to ensure another smooth running for the coming season.
In 2013, Kagera sugar placed a new record when, for the first time they were able to produce 50,000 metric tones of sugar in a year. Since then the factory has maintained its production above that mark.
KSL is keen on making sure that all team members adhere to defined standards. All activities are always verified against our rules or standards.
With such determination on best practices, policies and procedures while focusing on continous improvement in the production process, every member of the team always ensures that there is no deviation from the intended quality of the final sugar produced.
Investment in Machines & Equipment
KSL has heavily invested in machines and equipment, including the high-tech tractor-pulled scraper machines and soil movers that communicate with global positioning systems (GPS) for precise land surface levelling in the sugarcane fields; enabling effective irrigation with greater potential for savings on water and other resources with higher crop yields.
Housing and Social Welfare
Due to the geographical location, KSL is, and must be a kind of a company town, owning all the necessary (ultra modern) housing for its workforce, together with with the associated infrastructure (electricity, sewage, water etc.) to enable workers to work and live there confortably.
Occupational Health Services
Kagera Sugar takes great responsibility in the promotion of occupational health services for all its workforce, by investing in a well-equiped modern hospital that, not only serves KSL workers but also the community around the factory in Misenye District.
The Management believes that the staff at KSL have the right to as high a standard of occupational health services as found in other workplaces and industries located elswhere in the world.
The continous expansion of the cane fields calls for mechanisation in most of the activities. Pictured is a light-duty tractor with a spray rig for the application of chemicals, in action working in the field of young Sugarcane.
Healthy Mature Cane
KSL sugarcane is grown on Kagera Region's excellent climate and soil type; then it is well looked after with effective irrigation, proper application of fertilizers and pesticides control until its maturity (in picture) at the harvest period to produce the best yield of highly nutritious sugar.
When our sugarcane fields are ready for harvesting, it is the time for careful planning and mobilization of resources so that when production starts it continous without interruption. Cane cutting during harvet is still done by hand - and is hard work, but it means massive employment! A great support to the local manpower and therefore good for the nanional economy.
Harvest continous 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the whole production period. That means the cane haulage team makes sure that the factory gets a supply of all the cane it needs, and always just in time.
