Forward pricing

When we introduced forward pricing in 2008, it was to offer growers greater control over their cane price, including the opportunity to capture potentially attractive prices in the sugar market. But does forward pricing really make a difference? We did some analysis to find out.

Pool performance

We’re committed to transparency in reporting. Each quarter we report Wilmar and QSL’s pool price performance and associated marketing fees. The figures you see are the same as those published in other official reporting channels. They also mirror the actual amount paid to growers.

Cane price management

Our cane price management fact sheets cover general topics such as forward pricing, the sugar and futures markets, and the link between sugar marketing and pricing. Together they form a series that helps to explain the numerous elements that go into making up a grower’s cane price.


Below you will find a number of videos that help explain our pricing and payment options, as well as instructional guides for how to sign cane supply agreements and make pricing and payment nominations.
