Definition of whole kernel: Whole kernels are kernels which are not split or separated into halves, with not more than 25% of the kernel missing provided that the kernel contour is not materially affected by the missing portion

Size above refers to “passing over the smaller diameter hole” and “falling through the greater diameter hole” on the sizer tables. 

 

Independent laboratory tests are supplied with all batches. These tests are for chemical and microbiological thresholds.

Macadamia Oil

We have limited volumes of macadamia oil available. The oil is normally pressed from commercial grade kernel, therefore lower volumes are available. 

 

We supply in bulk volumes of 20 litre pails.

Product Development

Macadamia Nut & Cracker

Developed for quality retailers worldwide, our MacsPack contains sealed 300g macadamia nuts in shell PLUS a free hand revolutionery hand cracker. We believe this is the only safe, effective hand cracker on the market today. 

 

Macadamia nuts are notoriously difficult (and dangerous) to crack, especially when people try to use a hammer to do it! But the hand crackers supplied free with our MacsPack provides near perfect cracks, and are used regularly and safely even by our own children. 

 

Retailing between USD12-15 (depending on stores, taxes and location), it is a highly affordable way to eat freshly cracked macadamias.
