Australian Cotton Update – Jan 2024

Published: February 7, 2024

While many of our valued export market customers have strong relationships with individual merchant members, some may not be fully aware of the important role of the Australian Cotton Shippers Association (ACSA).

ACSA was formalised in 1991 and represents 15 cotton merchants. Those cotton merchants are independent, commercial entities involved in the purchase of cotton from growers and the sale of cotton to spinning mills and the textile supply chain.

ACSA members are engaged in the entire cotton supply chain from field to processing at the gin, to cotton classing, warehousing, shipping and delivery to final consumer. ACSA represents the interests of the cotton industry specifically in relation to the procurement and marketing of the Australian cotton crop.

This month Rob Cairns sat down with new ACSA Chairman, Tony Geitz, to get his views on the year ahead and the Australian cotton industry.
