Our Investors

With growing demand for productive agricultural land in the NSW Northern Rivers, the sugar cane industry is fortunate to have individuals and organisations that see the investment opportunities and value of the industry.
Our investors tell us that they appreciate the return on investment stability, the well-established industry structure and support systems; the sustainability of sugar cane as a renewable and natural resource; and the significance of the NSW sugar industry being ‘Bonsucro Certified Sustainable’ and 100% Australian owned.

Our Growers

The majority of our 600-odd growers are farming families who either own and work their own properties or share-farm for other land holders. They can produce up to 2.4 million tonnes of sugar cane each year from 34,000 hectares of land.
Cane farming in the Northern Rivers offers country living with close proximity to the coast, beautiful natural surroundings and amenable climate; and its six-month ‘on’, six-month ‘off’ season also provides a unique lifestyle.
