Tongaat Hulett's cane extension services and the establishment of cane on third party land that is fallow or being utilised for alternate crops. Initiatives to increase cane supply by acquiring land that is currently not supplying the mills continue to be pursued. These initiatives also support property development and enhance the value of Tongaat Hulett's existing land holdings.

During the planting season from September 2009 to January 2010, new areas under cane totalling 4 513 hectares were established through a combination of expanded or new small scale grower, commercial grower and Tongaat Hulett leased land estates.

In addition to these new areas under cane the company has been successful in achieving a net increase in the supply of cane from third parties of 2 013 hectares during the current season and has seen a reduction in the area under cane amounting to 200 hectares in the area surrounding the airport. The combination of these initiatives should result in the cane harvested supplying the South African mills expanding from 111 005 hectares in 2009 to a targeted 123 715 hectares in 2012.

As part of the overall land management process, Tongaat Hulett is assisting in the land claims processes within its cane catchment area in a positive and constructive manner that is designed to ensure cane supply to its mills is sustained. The post settlement model entails working with the claimant communities in order to assist them with business management and the development of successful farming practices, both during the transitional period prior to the settling of the claim and once the claimant community has taken ownership of the land.

Tongaat Hulett continues to optimise the value of the Huletts® brand as the leading sugar brand in South Africa. The brand remains the cornerstone of Tongaat Hulett's market positioning and offers a total sweetener solution including a range of high intensity sweeteners and liquid fructose.
