MSF Sugar is a leading agribusiness company – we are an integrated grower, processor, marketer and exporter of raw sugar.
We are Australia’s largest sugarcane farmer, second largest raw sugar exporter and the third largest miller.
MSF Sugar has a 124-year heritage in Australia and a future which centers on being an efficient, reliable, high quality supplier of sugar to international markets particularly in the Asian region.
Our Corporate Office is based in Gordonvale just south of Cairns and our major milling assets are located in Far North Queensland and the Fraser Coast region in South East Queensland.
Our assets include four sugar mills, supporting infrastructure including cane railway networks, agricultural property and water rights to support our cane growing activities. The mills are located at Gordonvale, South Johnstone, Atherton Tablelands and Maryborough. We grow about 650,000 tonnes of cane from our company owned farms.
Our property portfolio of predominantly caneland comprises almost 5,500 hectares in the Maryborough district and 8,000 hectares in Far North Queensland. We also own a 174ha tract of caneland known as Mary Harbour that is located in Maryborough and earmarked for a mixed urban development (subject to final planning approval).
We own water rights totalling approximately 7,500 ML in the Lower Mary Irrigation Scheme and 16,350 in the Mareeba Dimbulah Sunwater Scheme.
We source sugarcane from our own property holdings and from around 630 independent growers, some of whom lease land from us.
In addition we have a significant minority stake investment in Sugar Terminals Limited (STL), a bulk sugar port terminals operator. STL owns the Queensland regional ports of Cairns, Mourilyan, Lucinda, Townsville, Mackay and Bundaberg. These bulk sugar terminals are able to store a total of two million tonnes of bulk raw sugar destined for the export trade.
