Eston Sugar Mill, Natal Midlands, KwaZulu-Natal

Eston Sugar Mill, Natal MidlandsThe sugar cane mill in Eston, KwaZulu-Natal is known as the Illovo Sugar Mill. KwaZulu-Natal is the major sugar cane producing province in South Africa and there are 12 sugar mills in the region, with the Illovo Mill  being the most recently constructed.

It was established in 1995 to replace the old Illovo Mill and to date crushes millions of tons of sugar cane every year.

The sugar mill is also responsible for funding one of KwaZulu-Natal’s major mountain bike events – the Eston Illovo Mountain Bike Challenge, which attracts riders from all around the country on an annual basis.

The Mill aims to improve the standards of living for people in surrounding communities and provides infrastructure and education where these were previously lacking.
