For the 2019 Season, growers in the Mackay region can choose who markets their
GEI sugar.


QCS is the Mackay-Sugar owned marketer, and until the introduction of grower choice, has priced Mackay mill and growers’ sugar in the Short Term Pool and via forwarding pricing, and as part of Mackay Sugar’s domestic contract with Sugar Australia.

INDUSTRY-BEST RETURNS QCS’ 2017 season returns to growers were AUD 45 per IPS tonne of sugar
(AUD 6 per tonne of cane) above
those of QSL and significantly above those of most other GEI marketers in Australia.
ACCESS TO THE DOMESTIC MARKET Mackay Sugar’s long-term domestic supply contract with Sugar Australia delivers substantial freight cost savings to growers.
SIMPLE, FLEXIBLE FORWARD PRICING Our forward pricing options are flexible & simple to manage. We don’t ask you to work out contract expiries or price specific amounts, & tonnage is not committed until priced.
PRICING EXPERTISE Our pricing strategy is designed to deliver the best results in Australia, with proven execution and experience in sugar and foreign currency management.
WORLD-CLASS RISK MANAGEMENT QCS’ pricing expertise is underpinned by a price risk management strategy that
delivers strong pool returns, complemented by a low risk profile.
