Danilo promises to start sugar production in Montellano
President Danilo Medina has announced that the government would like to see a restart of the sugar cane production in Montellano. The sugarcane factory in Montellano was the largest employer of the small town near the airport. But since the bankruptcy of the bank Baninter 2003, the factory had to close.
The yield of the harvest of the year was, as usual, deposited on the bank and got lost. The president wants the sugar cane production in Montellano to have a restart, but now with the cultivation of a new type of sugarcane. This is a sugarcane species from Colombia that promises to be much healthier as the current sugarcane varieties. This variety is called Panela sugar, also known as gold sugar and comes from Central and South America. The sugar is made of the pure juice of the sugarcane so that valuable ingredients such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements are not lost. When the re-opening takes place, is still unclear. But this president is known to hold his promise.
