Join the Macadamia revolution
The massive demand for macadamias in New Zealand continues with 138ton of imported macadamia kernel compared to 60ton NZ produced macadamia kernel in 2016. Macadamias are also the ‘King’ of nuts and command the best prices at the supermarkets – unfortunately most are imported macadamias. Demand and lack of adequate supply of macadamias in NZ coupled with the premium price; is a great reason to grow macadamias.
Torere Macadamias Ltd is enthusiastic and excited to present a unique horticultural land development opportunity to you – growing commercial macadamia plants to produce superior quality macadamias in New Zealand.
We invite you to become one of the first in New Zealand to take part in the development of macadamias as an industry. Torere Macadamias Ltd offers exclusive commercial varieties of macadamia trees, which are more profitable and less labour intensive than other macadamia plant varieties currently grown in New Zealand. We have successfully grown and trialled commercial dropping macadamia varieties suitable for cooler climatic conditions and will continue this research for the New Zealand macadamia industry.
East Coast Macadamia development
Torere Macadamias Limited have established the first regional organic macadamia growers cluster at Torere and are committed to establishing an East Coast macadamia grower cooperative in the Gisborne region. The goal for 50,000 trees planted in the region by 2025 is on target with the 1st orders received from Nuhiti Q on the East Coast and two other major growers in Gisborne in 2016. The increased interest in growing macadamias in the region is attracting land-owners keen to grow financially viable but sustainable organic food crops that don’t harm their health, their land or the environment.
