Belle Vue farmers stand to lose millions if harvest fails to reach target – 2nd Jul 2013

shot0006This is what the area looked like before businessman Deodat Deokinandan began making his investment at Belle Vue. Now he stands to lose over 100 million dollars if he cannot harvest and sell some 12,000 tons of cane which would be ready for harvesting in weeks.

Deokinandan expressed his disgust with the authorities for not putting proper systems in place to ensure the farmers can gain a livelihood.

He said after investing millions of dollars over the past three and a half years in the struggling sugar industry through the Belle Vue Cane Farmers Marketing Cooperative Society he was told that the society is not recognized by the authorities. He said an IMC was installed but has not been functioning since April.

Deokinandan and other farmers told us that prior to last year when the farmers supplied the cane to GUYSUCO the money was paid to the Belle Vue Cane Farmers Marketing Cooperative Society.

The businessman has employed some 23  farmers and they are now hoping for a rethink by the authorities so that they can earn their daily bread.

Deokinandan and the other 29 farmers occupy 330 acres of land at Belle Vue.
