About ACFA

Australian Cane Farmers Association

Our History

The Australian Cane Farmers began in 1907 as an association of farmers and millers known then as the Australian Sugar Producers Association. In 1987 the company decided that the milling half would split off to form the Australian Sugar Milling Council, while the farming half was renamed the Australian Cane Farmers Association.
