Managing the Australian sugar industry's trade and market access activities, CANEGROWERS is a key participant in efforts to retain, enhance and build export markets for our raw sugar.
Australian growers are the only sugar producers in the world fully exposed to a world sugar market which is distorted by interventions such as price supports and subsidies in other producing nations. Removing these distortions will enhance underlying sugar market values.
With 80% of Australia’s production destined to export markets, CANEGROWERS argues that sugar should be meaningfully included in all trade agreements, multilateral, regional or bilateral.
CANEGROWERS works to:
- Secure the full inclusion of sugar in all trade agreements,
- Maximise access to preferential markets,
- Remove export subsidies, and
- Remove non-tariff barriers to Australian sugar.
CANEGROWERS is a founding member of the Global Sugar Alliance to unite worldwide partners in strengthening trade and market negotiations.
