About Our Macadamias

You won’t find a better Macadamia anywhere else. Farmgate World is proud to say that we’ve never had the quality of our export Macadamias questioned by any of our customers. The definition of a whole kernel is a nut that is not split or separated into halves. Our whole kernels have no more than 25% of the kernel missing, provided the contour is not affected by the missing portion. Size refers to “passing over the smaller diameter hole” and “falling through the greater diameter hole” on the sizer tables.

Independent laboratory tests for chemical and microbiological thresholds are supplied with all batches. Quality is calculated through samples collected from different batches with a minimum of two samples per tonne. Our report sheet indicates the percentage of Premium Grade Kernel , Commercial Grade Kernel and Reject Kernel which equates to total kernel percentage, including the shell weight equating to total sample weight. with a minimum diameter of 22mm and a moisture target of 1.5% per kernel. Nuts are shipped in 25 ton, 40 foot containers under optimal conditions to ensure product integrity upon arrival.
