Most people automatically think of Hawaii or Australia when someone mentions “macadamias”. Well, as it turns out, South Africa is in fact the macadamia farming capital of the world. With ideal agricultural conditions and local farmers renowned for being some of the best, South Africa currently holds the record in macadamia yields and quality.
However, their longstanding farming heritage has been threatened by political instability and land attacks, with little done to help up until now.
South Africa’s geographical isolation has meant that local farmers have had to rely on expensive middlemen to get their product into the market - each taking a cut - driving the price of macadamias up and making it more and more difficult for the farmers to make a living.
By partnering directly with the best local South African farmers, we are able to put money back in the pockets of the farmers and bring you this premium nut at a more affordable price.
In order to ensure the long-term health of the industry, we also work with select farmers who share the same eco-friendly mindset that we as a company promote and use new sustainable and water-conserving irrigation technologies.
Our macadamia nuts and products are then packaged within a short drive from the South African farms, ensuring freshness and a more cost-effective supply chain.
No middlemen. No cutting corners. True plant-farm to table.
