We've reached the 70 per cent mark for the 2020 season.

Our eight mills have processed a total of 10.48 million tonnes of cane – more than two-thirds of the estimated 15.07 million tonne crop.

Based on the current crop estimate, and no significant weather delays, we expect to finish the season by the end of November.
