The deadline to choose your marketer for next season is almost upon us, with Proserpine growers only having until 31 October 2019 to make their 2020-Season GEI Sugar Marketer nomination.
Electing your marketer is an important decision, as they not only sell sugar and negotiate important premiums on your behalf, but they also provide your pricing and payment options and any support you may need with these over the coming season.
QSL has been marketing Queensland sugar for nearly a century and represents more cane growers around our state than any other marketer. Here’s just some of the reasons why so many growers choose to market with QSL:
No mark-ups or margins:
We’re a pass-through organisation, which means we don’t “clip the ticket” and return all net value generated to those who choose to use our services.
QSL is Australia’s most experienced sugar marketer and has a strong track record of outperforming the market.
We don’t sell sugar to our own refineries. Instead, we use our long-term relationships with blue-chip Asian customers to target the best return available on behalf of those we represent.
The value of storage:
QSL is the only sugar marketer to export through every Queensland bulk sugar terminal. This means we have unrivalled shipping flexibility to help manage fluctuations in production across the state and maximise pricing and sales returns.
Upfront and transparent:
We have a proven commitment to transparency, with regular and public reporting of our returns and clear guidelines on how we account for and pass on any costs.
One system for all:
Big or small, new or existing customer, the QSL product offering and loyalty program reward all eligible growers equally. There are no special deals for big growers or new customers.
Dedicated local support:
Our Grower Services team is on hand when and where you need them, whether it be at your local QSL office, out on farm or via our free helpline.
