A 30,000 tonne shipment of NSW’s raw sugar is making its way to Japan, having been purchased by Japanese trading company Toyota Tsusho. Toyota Tsusho is the trading arm of the global Toyota Corporation and provides Australian sugar to Japan’s largest sugar refiner.
Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Sugar, Mr Chris Connors remarked; “The relationship between Sunshine Sugar and Toyota Tsusho has grown over the past couple of years with the Japanese buyers more than satisfied with both the quality of the sugar product and the standard of service they consistently receive from the NSW Sugar Industry.”
Staff from Sunshine Sugar travelled to Brisbane to meet with the Captain and crew and oversee the final stages of loading late last week.
Mr Connors went on to say; “With stringent import restrictions on the quality of raw sugar that can be imported into Japan, Sunshine Sugar has established itself as a supplier that can consistently deliver a product that meets those requirements.”
This latest shipment follows on from successful delivery of export cargos over the last three years.
