The rich alluvial soils of the Blue Nile flood plain, close to the course of the White Nile with its abundant surface water, are ideal for the cultivation of sugar cane which is currently established on some ,acre of irrigated land. The plan for a sugar-processing plant and cane estate was the brainchild of the late Tiny Rowland, whose Lonrho company already had extensive interests in Africa.

In he and the Sudanese government signed an agreement to produce sugar. Four years later the plant began processing sugar cane and it was officially inaugurated in Production was initially for domestic consumption and it was not until that exports began.

Nearly , people are estimated to be dependent on the project. Apart from sugar production, a new generation of environmentally friendly Kenana products are being developed from timber planted within the estate - while Kenana charcoal has been uniquely created from a by-product of sugar production, bagasse.

Kenana animal feed, with its high nutritional value, has also enjoys substantial export markets in the Gulf. Most of the sugar that is exported goes to African and Middle Eastern states, as well as India and Bangladesh, and as far away as Europe. Molasses are sold to Britain and the Netherlands. The KSC estate draws water for irrigation and processing. Six pumps raise the water 46 metres above the level of the river, sending it along a 40km canal to the plantation area.

The sugar cane is fed by gravity by some km of smaller canals, which follow the contour lines of the estate. Around 7, million litres a day are needed for irrigation alone. Road and rail links have been established to Port Sudan and to main centres around the country. The estate encompasses a township complete with mosque, primary and secondary schools, a hospital, several satellite villages with primary healthcare facilities, and a vocational training centre with modern equipment and teaching aids The factory crushes and processes more than 20, tonnes of cane a day.

The company subsidiary Kenana Friesland, an association with a Dutch company, is the largest supplier of dairy products in the country and produces milk, yoghurt and cheese.

The company has another branch called Kenana Engineering and Technical Services Kets , which is responsible for the management of various businesses, like White Nile and a mill in Nigeria, called Savana Sugar Factory. Kets is also participating in tenders for the construction of refineries in Kenya and Ghana. Apart from sugar production, a new generation of environmentally friendly Kenana products is being developed from 20, feddans of eucalyptus trees, planted within the estate-while Kenana charcoal has been created from a by-product of sugar production, bagasse.

Other projects in various stages of development include ethanol, floriculture, yeast, industrial alcohol and paper. Research has led to the commercial production of crops such as sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, sorghum, maize and peanuts. Number of Employees 6, employees The Kenana Sugar Company employs over 12, people, drawn from all regions of Sudan, with a further 4, seasonal workers also employed.

In Sudan there are five sugar factories. Ownership of Business The company is owned by a group of 11 shareholders, of which the Government of Sudan, with a Other shareholders include the Government of Kuwait, with Benefits Offered and Relations with Government Sugar is considered as one of the major strategic commodities in the country.

However policy formulation around the agriculture sector is still in a development stage. Within the framework of agricultural development, the state has drawn a plan to build infrastructure, develop agriculture, ease regulations, put economic-marketing policies that can compete in local and international markets; bridge food gap existing in the region and neighbouring countries.

Sudan has applied to join the World Trade Organization WTO , and is currently negotiating its terms of accession to the organization.

It started the negotiating process by submitting a proposal for accession. Sudan is currently undertaking reforms of its all commercial laws to bring all its trade-related laws, regulations and procedures into conformity with WTO requirements. The government of Sudan has also been implementing economic reforms since to restore economic growth and development.

The modernization of the agricultural sector is one of the major areas of concern for these reforms. This process is further continued under the umbrella of the WTO after Sudan becomes a full member.

Sudan faces from time to time a difficult food security situation. With the very high dependence of the population on agriculture and a largely family structure of farming, how the ongoing reform measures, and how the global agricultural trade liberalization impact on the agricultural sector is of critical importance. Therefore, food security concerns - which essentially mean the state of the agricultural sector - are central to discussion of trade policy reforms. Kenana expects the new fund management entity to attract investors from state funds, investment banks, investment companies, venture capitalists and high-net worth individuals in the MENA region and Sudan.

Also in October , it was announced that Kenana will manage more than , acres of farm land in a profit-sharing scheme with farmers, will improve technology, mechanise farming and irrigation and introduce new products and crops. Kenana said it would take 40 percent of profits, with 50 percent going to the farmers and 10 percent towards social schemes in the region such as building hospitals and schools. The plant, which is already in operation, has daily production capacity of , litres of alcohol.
