Each year, growers supplying Mackay Sugar can choose who markets their GEI (grower economic interest) sugar for the next season. Growers can nominate 100% of their GEI sugar to be marketed by single marketer or split their GEI sugar between marketers on a percentage basis.
The annual deadline by which growers have to make a nomination is 31 October, for the season commencing in June of the following year.
If no nomination is made by the 31 October deadline, the grower’s GEI marketing arrangements from the previous season carry over to the next season.
QCS is Mackay Sugar’s mill-owned GEI marketer. You can find out more about QCS’ GEI marketing offer by browsing through the following:
