Our Community Support Program aims to bring meaningful and lasting benefits to the communities in which we operate. We encourage community self-reliance through education and service support.

We support a wide variety of community events, organisations and clubs through financial and/or in-kind donations. Our Community Support Program prioritises causes and activities that reflect who we are and how we operate - health and safety, the environment, youth education and training, the arts and culture, and community.

The program is primarily targeted at the communities in which we own and operate our sugar mills, being the Hinchinbrook and Burdekin shires, and the Proserpine and Sarina districts.

Among the groups, events and initiatives we support are:

  • Brighter Lives Townsville Hospital Foundation
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities North Australia
  • The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys' Adopt-a-School program in the Burdekin
  • Drug and alcohol awareness programs for high school students
  • Agricultural shows and community festivals
