In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for your friend to work for the sugar factory in reference as he has no link with the other section of the factory that manufactures hard drinks (alcohol). Therefore, his income is halal. [1]

[1](قوله وحمل خمر ذمي) قال الزيلعي: وهذا عنده وقالا هو مكروه ” لأنه – عليه الصلاة والسلام – «لعن في الخمر عشرة وعد منها حاملها» وله أن الإجارة على الحمل وهو ليس بمعصية، ولا سبب لها وإنما تحصل المعصية بفعل فاعل مختار، وليس الشرب من ضرورات الحمل، لأن حملها قد يكون للإراقة أو للتخليل، فصار كما إذا استأجره لعصر العنب أو قطعه والحديث محمول على الحمل المقرون بقصد المعصية اهـ(رد المحتار ج6 ص391 سعيد)
