For the 2019 Season, Mackay region growers can choose who markets their GEI sugar. Mackay Sugar now has agreements in place with both of the current marketers, Mackay Sugar’s mill-owned marketer QCS, and QSL.
You now have the option to choose your marketer. You can choose 100% of your GEI sugar to be marketed by one marketer or you can split your economic interest between marketers on a percentage basis. It is up to you.
You also have a third option. You do not have to nominate a marketer. You can do nothing and leave the marketing with your own Mackay-Sugar owned marketer, QCS.
The closing date for nominations of a marketer is 5 March 2019. If you do nothing, then your GEI sugar will be marketed with Mackay Sugar’s marketing team, QCS.
