The state’s largest sugar marketer, Queensland Sugar Limited (QSL), has expanded its presence in North Queensland, with a recent addition to their Ingham-based team.
New QSL Grower Support Officer James Formosa has joined QSL’s local Grower Relationship Officer Jonathan Pavetto to provide information and assistance to the region’s cane growers on the full range of QSL products and services.
Mr Formosa is Far North Queensland (FNQ) born and bred, hailing from the Innisfail/Cairns districts. He has returned to FNQ after obtaining his Bachelor of Agribusiness degree at the University of Queensland’s Gatton Campus and after gaining valuable agricultural business experience in broadacre enterprises.
QSL’s Burdekin and Herbert River Grower Relationship Manager Greg Watson said James would be based in QSL’s Ingham office to ensure the large number of growers who had chosen QSL as their GEI Sugar marketer would receive a high-level of service.
“QSL has a strong focus on providing locally-based, one-on-one support for growers who use our services,” Mr Watson said.
“With most of the growers in the Herbert River district choosing QSL as their sugar marketer, it was a priority for us to expand our Ingham-based team to ensure local QSL growers have easy access to a familiar face who can help them with their queries.”
Mr Watson said now was the right time for growers to arrange an appointment to discuss their QSL pricing options for the 2019-Season before the 30 April nomination deadline.
To make an appointment or to speak with QSL’s Herbert River team, call into the QSL office on level 2, Ingham Canegrowers building, 11 Lannercost Street, Ingham, or contact Mr Formosa on 0447 062 213.
