Comparing financial outcomes
Our new publication, Comparing Financial Outcomes, enables Wilmar cane suppliers to directly compare the financial outcomes they might have achieved under Wilmar and under QSL for the past three seasons. Our analysis shows a grower nominating 1,000 tonnes IPS of GEI Sugar would have been up to $44,000 better off with Wilmar over that full three-year period.
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.
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.
We provide a number of flexible advances options to cater for the preferred cash flow timing of growers' businesses. Find out more about these payments below.
Below you will find a number of video guides for how to sign cane supply agreements and make pricing and payment nominations.
