You can see 2021 Season year-to-date pool performance here.

The price a grower receives for forward pricing varies, dependent on that grower’s individual pricing decisions. The price is received in the season in which the sugar is produced and delivered (not the season in which the sugar is forward priced).

Past in-season pool performance is included below:

As per the Mackay Sugar cane supply agreement, the QCS Shared Pool price is a combination of US Quota pricing less QCS costs. To help you more easily compare GEI marketers, in addition to reporting the Shared Pool price in the way that the cane supply agreement requires, we also break the Shared Pool price down into US Quota pricing and QCS costs. QCS costs can be overall positive or negative, depending on the revenues and expenses for the season. When QCS costs are positive, they increase the net Shared Pool return.
