Our goal

As sugarcane growers and sugar millers, we’re asked lots of questions about sugar.  This website shares our answers.

We know many people are unsure about how sugar fits into their lives. Some are struggling to eat well, keep active and manage their weight. 

As the Australian sugar industry, we want our natural product to be understood and enjoyed.  

We are farmers and manufacturers not health professionals so we encourage you to use the links we’ve provided to other sites where you can review scientific facts and information from authoratative sources. If you have questions that are not covered on Is sugar? please contact us.
