QUEENSLAND SUGAR LIMITED’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Beashel, issued the following statement last Friday (May 5):
I AM PLEASED to advise that QSL has begun the roll-out of its Grower Pricing Agreement (GPA) for Wilmar Growers, issuing the first contracts to Growers who have completed our Pre-Registration Form.
This is an important milestone for the implementation of QSL Marketing Choice for Wilmar Growers.
The GPA is a contract between QSL and a Wilmar Grower which details the conditions under which that Grower will allocate Grower’s Economic Interest in sugar (GEI Sugar) to QSL in order to access QSL’s marketing and pricing services.
Wilmar Growers who submitted a QSL Direct Pre-Registration Form will receive their GPA from QSL via email over coming days. A member of the QSL Grower Services Team will subsequently be in touch to help these Growers complete the agreement and discuss the key steps moving forward.
Wilmar Growers who are not pre-registered can still arrange to receive a GPA by completing the Pre-Registration Form available in the Wilmar Growers section of the QSL website (www.qsl.com.au) or by contacting their local QSL Grower Services Team representative via the details listed at the end of this update.
While QSL can now accept and process GPAs from Wilmar Growers, it is important to note that the GPA cannot be activated until QSL’s On-Supply Agreement (OSA) with Wilmar is in place, and we have received confirmation from Wilmar that the Grower has chosen QSL as a GEI Sugar Marketer as part of their Cane Supply Agreement (CSA).
Completing and submitting the GPA does not mean you have chosen QSL as your GEI Sugar Marketer – this is a separate step that must be done as part of the CSA process.
Only when you have done this and you have a valid CSA in place will QSL activate your GPA and issue you with instructions on how to access QSL’s pricing services through our new grower online portal – QSL Direct. You can read more about QSL Direct in the Wilmar Growers section of the QSL website at www.qsl.com.au.
