Sunshine Sugar Sweetens Local Chocolates

Sunshine Sugar is a proud local industry in the Northern Rivers and as such is always keen to support other local businesses and community groups wherever possible.

One such opportunity has led to a partnership between Sunshine Sugar and local artisan chocolate maker Dean Agic.

CEO of Sunshine Sugar, Mr Chris Connors said: “When we were approached with a request for sponsorship support of this years’ Ballina Food and Wine Festival, we were keen to get on board, but wanted to do something interactive and hands-on. When we learned of Dean Agic and his artisan chocolates, we thought this could be a good pairing. There is no greater test of how good a product is than in the tasting, and what a great way to showcase our sugar.”

Sunshine Sugar has supplied Dean with a range of locally grown and produced products that he used to prepare a number of bespoke chocolates for the Ballina Food and Wine Festival - blending not just sugar, but also molasses, treacles and even some cane spirit (white rhum).
