Records were in the custody of the BC Sugar Engineering Department. It is not known if the reports were submitted directly to the Engineering Department by the Ozama management, or were given to the Engineering Department after the sale of Ozama in 1955.
Scope and content
Subseries consists of records documenting the day-to-day operations of the Ozama Sugar Plantation and Factory in the Dominican Republic.
The large majority of the records consist of the production and operations reports submitted to the BC Sugar head office in Vancouver on a regular basis. During the production seaon (approximately January to June each year) the reports were submitted weekly. At other times the reports were submitted every two or three weeks. The reports include general remarks on operations, comments and statistics on weather, equipment reports, labour productivity statistics, notes on sugar cane planting and harvesting, reports on the work of various units at the Factory, and cane processing production data.
The sub-series also includes records relating to the sale of Ozama, specifically preparation for the sale, including assessments of factory assets.
