A familiar face has joined Queensland Sugar Limited’s Grower Services team, with Amanda Sheppard starting as QSL’s Far North Queensland Grower Relationship Officer, based in Mossman.
Amanda has worked in the sugar industry for the past seven years, including with advocacy body Australian Cane Farmers Association (ACFA) on the Next Gen farmer program and Step UP conferences.
Her most recent work has been with Terrain NRM on their Wet Tropics Major Integrated Project – a water quality monitoring project, working with growers and the community based in the Tully and Johnstone River basins.
Originally from Brisbane, Amanda moved to the Mossman area three years ago, where she now lives on a cane farm with her partner.
“I have worked alongside QSL during my time in the sugar industry, so I am very happy to be part of their North Queensland team,” she said.
“Locally, it’s very exciting times for growers supplying the Mossman Mill, with the formation of Far North Milling and the Daintree bio-precinct. I’m really looking forward to working with them to make the most of what QSL has to offer.”
