We operate as 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.


The NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative was formed in 1978 when cane growers purchased the three NSW sugar mills from CSR. The mills are located at Condong on the Tweed River, Broadwater on the Richmond River and Harwood on the Clarence River.

Manildra Group is a family-owned Australian group of companies, uniquely integrated as a diverse international agribusiness, dedicated to adding value to Australian industries and communities; and developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative products – unrivalled in quality and value – for a global market.
