Light of in­dus­try

Central and North Rural Weekly - - RURAL WEEKLY - KEVIN BORG Colum­nist

CANEGROWER­S Mackay has had a long and pro­duc­tive re­la­tion­ship with the Ru­ral Weekly, which has given us the op­por­tu­nity to com­mu­ni­cate on the is­sues im­por­tant to us in the sugar in­dus­try.

I’d like to thank the hard­work­ing jour­nal­ists who have un­err­ingly turned up for field days and work­shops, con­fer­ences and launches, an­nual gen­eral meet­ings and in­for­ma­tion meet­ings in our in­dus­try, to keep grow­ers and the wider com­mu­nity up to date with news that mat­tered to our sec­tor.

More than that, though, I thank the Ru­ral Weekly for shin­ing a light on the back­bone of the in­dus­try, our cane­grow­ing fam­i­lies and their unique sto­ries about farm life and run­ning suc­cess­ful farm busi­nesses.

Thanks Ru­ral Weekly for giv­ing the sugar in­dus­try a voice over many years.

Na­tional Farm­ers Fed­er­a­tion pres­i­dent Fiona Sim­son with Canegrower­s Mackay chair­man Kevin Borg.
