Two of the Australian Cane Farmers Association’s Board Directors Robert Quirk and Gerard Puglisi were recognised as industry leaders on an international stage at the recent Bonsucro conference in London.
Northern NSW sugar cane farmer Robert Quirk was presented with the coveted Bonsucro Sustainability Award.
Mossman cane farmer, Gerard Puglisi , has been chosen as the only cane farmer in the world to sit on the official review panel for Bonsucro’s Global Best Management Practice.
Over 145 people from 28 countries representing all sections of the sugar supply chain gathered in London for three days of Bonsucro events including the Farmer Focus and Standard Revision Day.
The event was held in London’s original sugar warehouse which is now the Museum of London.
