CACI Vice-President and General Manager Esteban Coscolluela expressed optimism about the opportunities for the coming season. “After what has been a challenging year for the sugar industry, CACI will start the new season with fresh directions as we look forward to set new records,” Mr. Coscolluela said.
 
Rolora Cuadra, Field Operations Department (FOD) Officer, shared that CACI ensures that its packages and incentives for planter-partners and clients are competitive.  “This crop year, we are making sure that our planter-partners and those who will mill with us will have the most value out of their canes,” Ms Cuadra said. 
 
Mr Coscolluela said CACI has undertaken major equipment upgrades and operation streamlining to ensure optimum factory operations.  “Last crop year, despite the industrywide dip in sugarcane production, CACI still managed to attain more than 90% of its target while the year before that, we achieved historical production figures.  With the upgrades and streamlining this year, we hope to meet our targets and deliver competitive incentives to our partners for their canes,” he said.
