OUR VISION

To be a world-class operation with community and private sector involvement to create a sustainable business that delivers value to its shareholders.

WHY THE EASTERN CAPE?

Why does the Eastern Cape provide favourable conditions to grow macadamias?

  • East Cape coastal climate is ideal.
  • Rand hedge capability and low input costs associated with macadamia production supports long-term profitability (R50,000/ha at maturity).
  • Macadamia’s are labour intensive supporting job creation.
  • Tourist income can be harvested through community initiatives i.e. cultural villages.
  • Macadamia industry is new to the Eastern Cape and rural communities will be best placed in exploiting first mover advantage with this product within the region.
