CHAPARRASTIQUE MILL

 

Chaparrastique Mill is located in the department of San Miguel. The daily milling capacity is 8 thousand tons of sugar cane.

San Miguel is in the eastern part of the country, and it is one of the most important departments in El Salvador. One of its most attractive natural wonders is the Chaparrastique volcano, the third highest in the country at 2,129 MASL, with occasional fumarole activity.

The foundation of Chaparrastique Mill goes back to 1982. At that time, the Government in office decided to build a sugar milling facility in the east of the country through the INAZUCAR. Chaparrastique Mill initially had an installed capacity to mill 3,000 tons of sugarcane per day.

Around 1995, and with the goal of taking the lead in Central America in terms of production and commercialization of sugarcane, power generation, and sugarcane by-products, the Privatization Law promoted the sale of shares, and that is how the Chaparrastique Mill became incorporated, and increased its daily milling to 6,000 tons of sugarcane.

In 2005, Compañía Azucarera Salvadoreña (CASSA) believed, and invested in the mill, and started a new stage of industrial reconversion, renewed professionalism, agricultural technology and above all, a deep commitment to reactivating sugar cane production in the area.

This vision led to improving conditions for human resources, investing in machinery and agricultural technology, and streamlining processes and making them more efficient. This is how the mill has risen to new heights in industrial capacity and efficiency.

Chaparrastique Mill is a national leader in the Salvadoran sugar agro-industry in terms of innovation, processes and efficiency.
