Sugar Mill

The Milling Council provides a policy advocacy platform for its members, covering a wide range of policy instruments and legislation.  These include environment and resource management, sustainability, urban and regional planning, work place health and safety, transport, energy, research and development, international trade and industrial relations.

Government policy direction can critically enable or stall the future of the Australian Sugarcane industry.  Industry stakeholders interact with a range of policies through every tier of government. This reflects sugarcane:

  • As a bio-derived energy resource and the substantial innovation opportunities associated with full resource utilisation; and
  • Its community connection underpinning the economies of the many townships throughout the industry.

Research and Development

The sugar industry has benefited substantially and consistently by maintaining specific research and development resources and subsequently applying the accumulated knowledge and experience. However, it can also be said that the sugar industry has not matched the productivity improvements that have occurred in other agricultural industries despite high levels of investment in sugar RD&E, as evidenced by agricultural and industry benchmarks.
