Sunshine Sugar is a partnership between the grower-owned NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative and the Australian family-owned business, Manildra Group; and is the only 100% Australian owned producer of raw and refined sugar products.
We own and operate sugar mills at Harwood, Broadwater and Condong and a refinery co-located at Harwood. Sugar production has been a major industry in the Clarence, Richmond and Tweed Valley’s for over 150 years, with the Harwood Mill being the longest running sugar mill in Australia, having commenced operation in 1874.
Sunshine Sugar is the retail name used for the NSW sugar industry. This industry supports more than 500 farming families and over 1,000 direct and indirect employees. Our farming footprint covers some 34,000 hectares with up to 2.4 million tonnes of cane grown and 275,000 tonnes of raw sugar produced each year. These operations contribute over 200 million dollars per annum to the northern rivers economy.
Being 100% Australian owned, Sunshine Sugar is very proud to be the first refined sugar producer in the world to be awarded Bonsucro® certification. Bonsucro® promotes a global standard for improving the social, environmental and economic sustainability of sugar cane production and processing in order to contribute to a more sustainable future. We are also the only sugar milling and refining company 100% certified which means even farming practices of growers are certified encouraging sustainable farming and communities.
