Australian Cane Farmers Association (ACFA) has expressed their appreciation to exiting Queensland Sugar Limited (QSL) Chairman, Mike Carroll, for the positive role he has played within Queensland’s sugar industry.
Disappointment has also been voiced at the decision made by QSL’s Board Selection Committee not to reinstate Mr Carroll.
Speaking from his farm in Mossman, ACFA Chairman Don Murday said that he was disappointed with the outcome and process which led to Mr Carroll’s exit.
“Mike has been an excellent Chairman, showing great leadership, particularly in the last year, and we thank him for that.
“With the uncertainty of the future of raw sugar marketing in Queensland, recent times have been difficult for our industry, however Mike has continued to show resilience and strong direction.
“Although we regret this decision, we will continue our strong working relationship with QSL’s Board and Management and we, of course, welcome and support Guy Cowan in his role as Chairman,” Mr Murday concluded.
