The Macadamia Processing Company has recently changed its name to Marquis Macadamias and our marketing company has changed name from Macadamia Marketing International to Marquis Marketing. As of 1st April the business and assets of Pacific Gold Macadamias will be transferred into Marquis Macadamias. This will bring the two largest processors in the industry under the one corporate entity and will allow us to take advantage of economies of scale and share services, reducing costs and provide ongoing benefits to our growers. NIS delivered to the Bundaberg and Lismore factories in 2020 will be purchased by Marquis Macadamias.

Marquis Marketing will continue to concentrate on developing new markets and products to help ensure growers remain profitable as the world crop grows. The strategic partnerships we have formed with processors across the globe are providing us with market opportunities that are delivering value for both us and our market partners.

After a difficult growing season, I’m pleased to say another harvest season is upon us and I can advise that Marquis Macadamias outlook for the industry remains positive. The dry weather of the growing season has been a concern but considering all factors we anticipate the crop quantity and quality to be reasonable.

The demand globally for our high quality products continues with many customers seeking prompt shipment of 2020  kernel and nut-in-shell (NIS) to ensure their products keep up with strong consumer demand.

Quality Bonus for low Rejects

Our quality bonus is designed to reward growers who produce high quality macadamias through the additional efforts they put into orchard management.  We still encourage growers to harvest and move the product through to the factory as soon as possible as this ensures the highest quality and the highest return per hectare. Our research shows that holding NIS on farm for resorting in an effort to achieve a quality bonus often does not improve returns as it results in the loss of saleable kernel which offsets any gains from a quality bonus.

Payment terms

We understand the value of cash-flow to growers. To assist growers with their expenses, we continue to offer a significant first payment.  All acceptable NIS deliveries will receive 50% of the consignments value as an upfront payment, 2 weeks from the end of the week of delivery (less levy and dehusking charges where applicable).

The progress payment schedule will be forwarded later in the season, but it is anticipated it will be similar to previous years with progress payments commencing in July and final payment to the notional price by Christmas.

Freight subsidy

Marquis Macadamias will once again pay a freight subsidy as part of the NIS payment system.  This payment will be made to all growers, regardless of whether you use a contract carrier or cart NIS yourself. The amount to be paid will be radius based, based on the distance of your farm from the factory you are delivering to (Bundaberg or Lismore) or the Marquis Macadamias depot you use.

Radius from depot Rate per kg NIS @ 10%MC
0-50km 3.0c
50-100km 3.7c
100km+ 6.0c

The freight rebate will be paid as part of your NIS payments.

2020 Dehusking arrangements

Northern NSW

This season we will again have dehusking services available for growers through the Summerland House Farm (HWNS) and Nimungi Pastoral Dehusking Service.

Bundaberg

We are pleased to announce that we will have dehusking services available through Macadamia Enterprises. This state-of-the-art processing shed has systems in place to allow rapid throughput and ensure high quality is preserved.

The dehusking capacity of these facilities is limited, so please contact your local Marquis Macadamias grower liaison officer to discuss your needs for the season.

Grower Services

With the growth in growers supplying Marquis Macadamias we are pleased to announce some changes to our grower services team. Our focus is to ensure we have people available to assist you in all issues related to macadamia production by appointing people with strong technical skills in agricultural production systems.

In Bundaberg we have appointed Simon Andreoli to work with growers in that region. Simon’s appointment is a reflection of our commitment to the growth in production in the region. Simon has a wealth of experience in horticulture, having worked in the Bundaberg region for many years and I’m sure he would be well known to many of you.

In NSW we have appointed Karina Griffin and Matt Weinert to our grower services team. Both Karina and Matt have strong backgrounds in agriculture and are available to assist you with all issues related to the production of macadamias. They will join Mark Whitten in our NSW grower services team.

Kevin Quinlan will be responsible for the overall delivery of grower services across QLD and NSW.
