In this paper we tried to concentrate on the factors associated with the operational losses of sugar during the sugar manufacturing process. Data is collected from The Kaithal Cooperative Sugar Mills Ltd. (2500 TCD) which is situated in Kaithal District of Haryana State. The major reasons of losses in sugar are due to sugar in bagasse, final molasses, filter cake and unknown factors. The sugar losses occurred in any sugar plant in a season of crushing is one of the important term of accessing the technical performance of the sugar plant. Main objective of this study is to find out various losses in operations in detail. We found after analyzing the data that the loss of sugar in bagasse, molasses, and press-mud cake and in unknown losses is 2.07% of the total cane crushed and out of the total sugar loss at The Kaithal Cooperative Sugar Mill Ltd. sugar loss in bagasse is 25.34 % while sugar loss in filter cake is 2.89 %, sugar loss in molasses is 66.94 % and sugar undetermined loss is 4.83 % respectively.
