Sugar Code of Conduct Review

We are currently reviewing Australia’s Sugar Code of Conduct (the Code) and are seeking feedback from industry and community stakeholders. The purpose of this review is to determine the effectiveness of the existing Code and whether amendments are required.

The Code was introduced in 2017 to regulate the conduct of growers, mill owners and marketers in relation to contracts or agreements for the supply of cane or the on supply of sugar. The Code also seeks to ensure that supply contracts between growers and mill owners guarantee a grower’s choice of the marketing entity for the sale of sugar for which the grower bears the price exposure risk.

The review will examine the Code in accordance with its terms of reference and provide advice to Government before the end of the year.

To make a submission on the review of the Code:
