Sugar Cane Growing

The cane growing sector comprises approximately 130 registered sugarcane growers farming predominantly in the lowveld, and some farming operations around Malkerns and surrounding areas. The number of smallholder growers, mostly on Eswatini Nation Land, has grown considerably in recent years – particularly since the 1990s. Sugar is manufactured by 3 milling companies with all the sugar mills operating in these cane growing regions.
