COLONY SUGAR MILLS LIMITED (CSML) is a public limited company, incorporated on May 9th, 2007 to undertake Sugar and Allied businesses. The company acquired two Sugar plants and one Ethyl Alcohol (Ethanol) Distillery in the year 2007. After completion of these acquisitions and approval of the SECP and KSE, the Company was listed on Karachi Stock Exchange on August 13th, 2008.
Our Sugar Manufacturing facilities are located at Phalia and Mian Chanu with cane crushing capacity of 7,500 Metric Tons/Day and 6,500 Metric Tons/Day respectively. The Distillery is located at Phalia, adjacent to the Sugar Plant. The installed capacity of the Distillery is 125,000 Liters/Day (100 M. Tons/Day). In order to make a value added product, a De-Hydration Unit (EDU) was added to the distillery which came in to production in February 2008.
In order to recover a huge amount of Carbon Dioxide Gas (CO2) that is produced during the fermentation process of Molasses, a state of the art CO2 Recovery Plant with 48 Metric Tons/Day capacity was bought from Italy, which is currently under erection and installation process. It is worth mentioning that no distillery in Pakistan but one other than ours has the CO2 recovery system installed. Elsewhere in Pakistan, CO2 produced during fermentation process is exhausted in the atmosphere and thus wasted.
The company has implemented the following management systems and got Certifications to ensure a productive, healthy and safe environment:
- Quality Management System ISO 9001:2008
- Environment Management System ISO 14001:2004
- Food Safety Management System ISO 22000:2005
