The 2015 Australian macadamia crop has been estimated at 47,000 tonnes in-shell @ 10% moisture (43,800 tonnes in-shell @ 3.5% moisture) by the AMS in its first forecast for the year.
Macadamias represent the very essence of Australia – the soil, the climate and the seasons. This native Australian nut has become a global success story, and with good reason. Nothing compares to its texture, its taste or its health benefits. And nothing compares to the commitment of Australian growers to produce the world’s finest nut.
The Australian Macadamia Society is the peak industry body of over 600 Australian members representing all facets of the macadamia industry in Australia. Whilst the majority of members are growers, membership also includes such diverse occupations as processors, administrators, business people, investors, marketers, consultants, researchers, engineers, teachers and other macadamia enthusiasts. It is estimated that 70% of Australian growers are members of the Society and that they produce 90% of the Australian annual production. The AMS was founded with the objectives of promoting and coordinating all aspects of the industry, to encourage free exchange of ideas and information and to foster goodwill among members..
China’s growing appetite for Aussie macadamias just got bigger
