Sunshine Sugar

Sunset over cane

The Northern Rivers region of NSW is the southern gateway to Australia’s sugar industry and the origin of sugar cane growing in Australia, dating back to the 1860’s. Sugar cane and sugar production in the Tweed, Richmond and Clarence Valley’s is one of the oldest and largest employers in the Northern Rivers and is the only 100% Australian-owned manufacturer of locally grown, certified sustainable, raw and refined sugar products.

Sunshine Sugar is a partnership between the grower-owned NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative Limited and the Australian family-owned agribusiness Manildra Group, each holding a 50% share. This partnership creates Australian jobs, a sustainable business and stronger communities.

Sunshine Sugar was the first in the world to be awarded Bonsucro certification across the growing, milling and refining operations. Bonsucro is the global  standard for sustainable sugar production.

Our sugar is also Halal and Kosher certified.

The NSW sugar industry is committed to maintaining its economic viability and has driven significant investment to enhance market competitiveness over the past decade.

The industry welcomes new growers and investors, and works with farmers to increase their productivity and profitability.
