Macadamia

Australian macadamias are one of the natural health foods indigenous to Australia and processing of the in shell nuts at the modern factory of MPC at Alphadale in Northern New South Wales produces the world’s finest quality wholesale macadamias for the ingredient and retail markets around the world.

MPC owns and operates one of the world’s largest macadamia processing facilities. Our brands IML and Growers Choice are marketed by Macadamia Marketing International (MMI) which is known internationally for quality product, excellent service and timely delivery to customers, both large and small.

MPC also owns 50% of Consolidated Nuts (Aust) Pty Ltd (CNA) which is situated in the Bundaberg growing region. CNA also market their brand Pacific Gold Macadamias through MMI. To read more about CNA click here.

MPC is wholly owned by over 200 Australian macadamia growers in North Eastern New South Wales and South Eastern Queensland. The company processes 30% of the annual Australian crop.

Our orchards are located on Australia’s east coast in some of Australia’s most beautiful rainforest and subtropical environments. This is the area where macadamias, which are native to Australia, were first discovered.

Macadamias are a delicious, natural, healthy food which should be part of your balanced diet. They contain the highest levels of monounsaturated fat – the “good fat” – of all nuts as well as a wide range of vitamins, minerals, beneficial antioxidants, protein and fibre but contain no cholesterol; all of which help to keep you in good shape.

Our processing facility produces around 15% of the world’s macadamia kernel and our quality is the highest in the world today (please see our Quality & Food Safety Page to find out why).

Offering full traceability from the grower to you, we pride ourselves on the fact that, through technological advantage and economies of scale, we develop products and quality specifications that exactly match our customers needs.

We constantly strive to be the best and we welcome you to explore the pages in this website (or Contact Us) to learn more about our company and products and how they can benefit you.
