Almost 1,300 predominantly family owned, and operated sugarcane farms supply our three mills.

Sugar production in the Mackay and district region comes from a cultivated area of almost 80,000 hectares of which cane is harvested from approximately 69,000 hectares.

Cane supply is imperative to our business; therefore, we place great importance on developing initiatives to assist us in retaining existing cane lands and expanding the area of land under cane throughout the Mackay region.

Influencing the supply of cane are the operational factors of cane harvesting and transport, and climate. The other important influence is our farmers' access to sugarcane varieties best suited to the region.

We provide various incentive schemes and competitive leasing arrangements to existing and prospective growers to establish more land under cane.
