(吉隆坡15日訊)大馬糖廠正與政府商討再度調漲每公斤白糖價格29仙,從而確保該公司今年的盈利。馬來亞糖廠(MSM,5202,主要板消費)指出,目前仍與政府在磋商,

「我們還在跟政府接洽白糖事宜,但我們知道政府在執行方面有難處。對我而言,我們嘗試與政府密切合作。」

聯邦土地發展局集團首席執行員拿督查卡里亞阿瑟今日在年度股東大會後指出,截至今年3月1日,白糖零售價從每公斤2.84令吉,漲11仙至2.95令吉。距離馬來亞糖廠之前所要求的40仙漲幅,仍有29仙落差。

「公司需要從市場上,取回應有的29仙。」

據《光華日報》報道,聯邦土地發展局集團首席執行員拿督查卡里亞阿瑟說,隨著原糖價格出現波動,加上令吉匯率的表現,使得今年成為極具挑戰的一年。

「基於原糖價格波動,政府應調漲每公斤的售價40仙。」

 

他今日出席該公司旗下白糖製造臂膀MSM大馬控股有限公司的常年大會後,對記者這麼說。

儘管MSM早前要求白糖每公斤售價漲40仙,但政府已於今年3月,調漲本地白糖每公斤的售價11仙,即從2令吉84仙增至2令吉95仙。

「我們還在和政府商討,我們理應獲得每公斤29仙的漲幅,雖然我們都知道政府很難做到這一點。」

「不過,我們非常幸運,相較於去年11及12月,原糖價格已從每磅0.22美元降至目前的0.155美元,如果原糖價格攀升,對我們而言非常艱辛。」

 

查卡里亞阿瑟也提到MSM坐落在柔佛丹絨冷剎提煉廠的興建計劃,預料該廠可在2018年首個季度開始運作,這是基於該廠已經完成45%的工程進度衡量出來的時間表。他說,目前該公司的白糖僅出口至中東國家和北非。一旦這個提煉廠投入運作後,將能幫助該公司拓展業務,尤其是把產品出口至新加坡和印尼。

另外,查卡里亞阿瑟還特別重申,大馬的白糖價格依然是東協區域內最低的。即使是原糖和白糖的生產國,我們的鄰國泰國,白糖的售價都比我國還高!

隨著糖王郭鶴年退出大馬白糖市場之後,這已經是不知道第幾輪漲價了!弔詭的是,糖王郭鶴年操控本地白糖市場的時候,白糖每公斤售價才區區RM1.30都能取得豐碩的盈利,為何5年前被納吉羅斯瑪指示《土著精英企業家》賽莫達強制收購之後,白糖價格至少調帳了超過5輪,零售價也已經從每公斤RM1.30衝高到了每公斤RM2.95,卻還是年年高喊賺不夠?

 

這真的讓老百姓很還念糖王還在馬來西亞白糖市場的日子。

MSM in talks to raise sugar price by 29 sen

 

KUALA LUMPUR: MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd is still in talks with the government to increase the local sugar price by a further 29 sen per kg to ensure the company’s profitability this year.

Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) Group president and CEO Zakaria Arshad said the volatility in raw sugar prices, coupled with the ringgit performance, had made this year a very challenging one.

「Given the volatility in raw sugar prices, the government should increase the selling price by 40 sen per kg,」 he told reporters after MSM Malaysia’s annual general meeting here today.

MSM, a 51%-owned unit of FGV, is Malaysia’s leading refined sugar producer.

The government increased the local sugar price by 11 sen per kg to RM2.95 per kg on March 1, although MSM had earlier asked for a 40 sen increase.

「We are still in talks with the government to have the 29 sen per kg that we are supposed to get, but we also know that the government has its difficulty with that.

 

「However, we are lucky that the raw sugar price has reduced to US$0.155 per pound now, compared with the US$0.22 per pound recorded in November and December last year.

「If the raw sugar price increases, it will be very difficult for us,」 he said.

He reiterated that Malaysia’s sugar price was among the lowest in the Asean region.

「Even Thailand, which is a raw sugar and sugar producer, is selling the product at a higher rate than us,」 he said.

On MSM’s sugar refinery in Tanjung Langsat, Zakaria said the plant, which is 45% complete, was expected to begin its operation in the first quarter of 2018.

「The production at the plant would enable us to expand our export destinations to Singapore and Indonesia,」 he said, adding that the company currently exports its products to Middle Eastearn countries and North Africa.

He said so far, the refinery had utilised RM400 million out of the total US$259 million capital expenditure set aside last year.

「We will keep the construction within the budget,」 he said.

The Tanjung Langsat sugar refinery is MSM’s third processing facility in Malaysia with an annual capacity of one million tonnes.

The other two sugar refineries are in Prai, Penang, which is able to process 3,000 tonnes per day, and in Chuping, Perlis, which has a daily capacity of 600 tonnes.
