Driving Innovation: Research and Development at New Dadu Sugar Mills

In the heart of District Dadu, Sindh, stands a beacon of innovation in the sugar industry: New Dadu Sugar Mills. Established in 2008 under the ownership of Omni Group, this mill has not only revitalized a once-dormant facility but has also pioneered groundbreaking advancements in sugar production methods.

Reviving a Legacy: From Government Ownership to Private Innovation

New Dadu Sugar Mills has a unique history, originally under the stewardship of the Government of Pakistan through the Pakistan International Development Corporation (PIDC). However, persistent production losses led to its closure in 1999. After a decade of dormancy, Omni Group took the helm in July 2008, ushering in a new era of technological prowess and operational excellence.

Embracing Cutting-Edge Technology

One of the hallmarks of New Dadu Sugar Mills’ transformation is its adoption of state-of-the-art equipment, notably becoming one of the world’s few complete FCB (French technology) plants. The majority of its sugar processing machinery is sourced from FCB, France, including essential components like Boiler Houses, a Power House, Process House, and a Mill House.

Key Figures Driving Innovation

Behind the success of New Dadu Sugar Mills are visionary leaders who steer its research and development endeavors. Khawaja Abdul Ghani Majid, the Group Chief Executive Officer, alongside Khawaja Anver Majid, the Founder and Chairman, have spearheaded the company’s strategic direction. Directors such as Khawaja Mustafa Majid, Khawaja Ali Kamal Majid, Khawaja Nimr Majid, and Group Chief Operating Officer Khawaja Salman Younis bring a wealth of expertise to the table, ensuring that innovation remains at the forefront of operations.

Technological Milestones and Achievements

Since its inception, New Dadu Sugar Mills has achieved significant milestones. With a crushing capacity of 5,000 TCD (Tons of Cane per Day), the mill produces high-quality white refined sugar (Grade R1) along with valuable by-products like molasses, bagasse, and pressmud. Its commitment to quality is reflected in its sales tax registration, NTN number, SECP registration, and incorporation date, showcasing a robust legal and financial framework.

Community Engagement and Sustainability Initiatives

Beyond technological innovation, New Dadu Sugar Mills is dedicated to fostering sustainable practices and community engagement. Through initiatives aimed at environmental stewardship and social responsibility, the company underscores its commitment to creating a positive impact beyond its operational boundaries.
