The sugar industry has been a part of life in northern New South Wales for more than one hundred years. The industry is a significant contributor to the economy of the area and provides the community with employment opportunities, growth and prosperity.
The NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative Ltd was formed when cane growers purchased the three NSW sugar mills from CSR in 1978. The mills are located at Condong on the Tweed River, Broadwater on the Richmond River and Harwood on the Clarence River.
The Co-operative also operates a sugar refinery which is located alongside the Harwood Mill. This is owned by a joint venture company, Manildra Harwood Sugars, in which the Co-operative is a 50% partner with Manildra Flours.
The only manufacturer of locally produced, certified sustainable, raw and refined sugar products.
