As farmers ourselves, the Mac-Eden factory is committed to serving and developing trustworthy, mutually beneficial long-term relationships with selected macadamia farmers who are like-minded in our goals.
Why crack a deal with us?
- We don’t tie you down with contracts
- We don’t use your money to run our business
- No penalties charged for higher levels of moisture content or USKR
- No premiums charged for individual processing
- No crop rejected whether big or small
Should we not offer a deal that appeals to you, you are free to process your crop wherever you feel will benefit you the most.
What does Mac-Eden offer you?
Integrity: Each farmer is paid for his own quality of nut – there is no mixing or averaging out of crackout results – only your actual crackout is calculated.
Quality: As members of SAMAC, we encourage our farmers to excercise good orchard management and to follow environmentally friendly and sustainable farming practices. This results in better quality crops and payouts.
Personal: Mac-Eden is small enough to interact with you on a personal level so as to establish trust and a long-term mutual friendship/partnership. You can arrange to watch your nuts being processed on the day should you so choose.
Finance: Our farmers have benefitted from innovative and lucrative cash payment schemes designed by farmers... for farmers. We understand the importance of cash-flow with up to 50% cash payments being paid upfront on delivery!
Adaptability: Because Mac-Eden is family owned, we are quick and flexible to maximise on market opportunities presented and to fill niche markets requiring specialised packaging and/or product.
Results: Completely sold out for 10 consecutive years!
This means we have well established international clients, committed to Mac-Eden for exactly the same principles of personal relationships, top quality product, integrity and competitive pricing.
