Change to QCS supply arrangements

Friday, 01 December 2017

Queensland Sugar Limited (QSL) today received notification from Queensland Commodity Services (QCS) that it will terminate its current Raw Sugar Supply Agreement (RSSA) with QSL from the end of the 2019 Season.

As a result, QCS’s parent company Mackay Sugar Limited will not be contracted to supply raw sugar to QSL for marketing purposes beyond 30 June 2020, but has indicated that it wishes to establish an On-Supply Agreement with QSL to enable its growers to continue to access QSL marketing services moving forward.

QSL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Greg Beashel said that QSL welcomed the opportunity to work with QCS and Mackay Sugar to deliver marketing choice to Mackay Sugar growers.

“We’ve already successfully delivered marketing choice arrangements to Wilmar, MSF Sugar and Tully Sugar growers and we look forward to extending similar arrangements to Mackay Sugar’s growers in the Mackay, Tablelands and Mossman milling districts,” Mr Beashel said.
