According to the Indonesia Ministry of Trade, Indonesian sugar consumption within the consumer retail segment is 3 mn tonnes per year, while national sugar production is only about 2.5 to 2.7 million tonnes per year resulting in a shortfall of 300-500,000 tonnes of sugar. Therefore, the new government is committed to building 10 new sugar mills between 2015 and 2020 with Rp42.5 trillion of investment. Each mill is hoped to be able to process 30,000 tons of sugarcane per day. To achieve the goal, Indonesia’s sugar mill must upgrade and use the modern technology and machinery for its sugar production.
