Four decades of change: CANEGROWERS Chairman Paul Schembri retires
Show Notes

After 39 years representing his fellow sugarcane growers, most recently as CANEGROWERS Chairman, Paul Schembri is retiring to spend more time on his Mackay farm. 
In this podcast he reflects on four decades of significant change in the Australian sugar industry, surviving a practical joke at his first ever meeting, robust gatherings of growers and the advice of mentors who helped him along the way (including Bill Benson and Malcolm Pratt who join in for a chat). 
 CANEGROWERS is a membership organisation for sugarcane growers in Australia.
