However QSL is working with representatives of Far Northern Milling Pty Ltd and will release further details around our marketing arrangements in this district as soon as the sale of the mill is finalised.

QSL Market Update
Sugar prices began the reporting period at the 13c/lb handle before slowly grinding lower. The MAR19 contract made its high of 13.08c/lb on the Monday, before slipping to its low of 12.37c/lb on the Friday, closing the week at 12.44c/lb. The major driver behind the fall in sugar prices was large scale producer selling which swamped spec short covering.
