Malaysia: Operations at Johor sugar refinery halted for two months


Kuala Lumpur: MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd has stopped operations at its refinery at MSM Sugar Refinery (Johor) Sdn Bhd (MSM Johor) for two months starting from March 31.

The company in its filing with Bursa Malaysia said that the step has been taken due to the breakdown of boiler. The company is expected to achieve its set target by the third quarter of this year.

“During the temporary production shutdown, the company shall utilise its available refined sugar stocks in MSM Johor, supported by the production from MSM Prai Bhd’s refinery for supply to the domestic and export markets,” said the company.
