Sunshine Sugar is the retail brand for the NSW Sugar Industry – the only 100% Australian-owned sugar growing, milling and refining producer.
We own and operate sugar mills at Harwood, Broadwater and Condong and a refinery co-located at the Harwood site. These sugar mills produce around 250,000 tonnes of raw sugar which is either refined at the Refinery or processed as Low GI and food-grade Raw sugar at Condong.
We manufacture private label sugar for some of Australia’s major retailers as well as our own Sunshine Sugar label that is sold through independent grocery stores. We sell refined and raw sugar to over 300 different customers across all types of food and beverage manufacturing, in quantities ranging from 1kg bags to bulk tankers and trucks. We also sell a food grade molasses to various food manufacturers and processors, and a mill molasses to primary producers.
The sugar milling process is a very efficient one, with virtually no waste product. Dried sugar cane fibre (bagasse) is used as boiler fuel to produce steam and electricity. Other waste products include filter mud, mud/ash and ash which are a valuable soil conditioner and an important source of plant nutrients and
