1. High overall return for your crop

Our combination of a payment scheme that rewards quality, offers a fair and consistent laboratory testing process and delivers fast payment ensures that our growers receive maximum value for their crop. MPC’s track record of increasing the final price paid to our growers during the season means you can have confidence that MPC will provide you with the best returns in the industry.

2. Payment terms that suit growers

MPC offers high upfront payments, and has a strong history of full payments made to all our growers by Christmas. The faster payments allow our growers to spend or invest their income as they require, and can reduce the need for seasonal finance.

Our payment terms are specifically designed to assist growers with their cash-flow. This means our growers have the confidence to plan their cash-flow with greater certainty.

“Cash-flow is critical to our business. The knowledge that we can rely on payments coming regularly is a necessary ingredient for successful business management.” David & Ann Anderson

3. Consistent & reliable NIS laboratory testing

Our fully transparent testing process is fair to our farmers. MPC growers have found that while the price offered is important, the laboratory assessment of NIS also plays a critical role in determining income.
That is why we have created a laboratory testing system that is known for its reliable and consistent NIS testing. This system means our growers can realise the higher returns they deserve.

We have an open door policy for testing and growers are welcome to come in and see their assessments being performed. We keep all test samples for two months so that they can be reviewed by the grower, and we are always happy to discuss the results with you.

By providing you with fast turn-around of testing results (free of charge), you can make decisions about your farm and harvest sooner.

Fair to farmers, open and transparent – the hallmark of MPC’s laboratory testing.

“MPC’s consistent & reliable NIS testing has allowed me to make management decisions with confidence, which maximise my on-farm returns. Early in the season I have used MPC’s testing to determine when to commence harvesting husk spot affected nuts. The accurate and rapid test results have allowed me to reduce the unsaleable losses of NIS due to husk spot by 30 – 40%.” John Pretorius

4. High capacity receivals

Our efficient, high capacity receivals area ensures we can always accept your crop – so you get paid more money, sooner. By not having to store the NIS in your own silos, you’ll avoid any loss of quality. And better quality equals better profits. Our ability to receive NIS when you want to deliver it will also decrease your on farm storage requirements and thereby reduce your capital costs.

5. World class grower support

MPC is at the forefront of assisting farmers with progressive farming practices to increase your return. We have an ongoing commitment to improve the crop yield and optimise the quality of your NIS so that you can maximise your profit.Our regular grower field days demonstrate the practical applications of the latest research and industry developments. It is our partnership with growers that has been core to our success, and to that of our growers.

6. Superior technology – provides a better price for growers

MPC’s world class processing technology ensures your kernel gets to the market in the best shape to command the best possible returns, every time.
We continually implement new techniques and update the factory with cutting edge equipment to lower processing costs and improve quality. This allows us to return higher payments to growers.

7. Access to new global markets

MPC’s marketing arm, International Macadamias Limited (IML), has been a global leader in macadamia marketing since it’s inception more than 20 years ago.

We have achieved this by constantly forging global alliances that result in innovation and significant macadamia product lines and worldwide distribution channels that drive added value for our growers.

IML is not content to just sell to existing markets at commodity prices. We forge global partnerships in value-added macadamia markets, constantly driving new distribution channels and higher prices for our growers.

8. Industry leading quality standards

MPC’s international reputation for quality is a highly prized asset. Retaining industry leading quality standards means MPC can command consistently high prices for our products, so we can pay consistently high prices to our growers.

In addition to the usual programs of HACCP and ISO 9001, MPC has it’s own systems in place to ensure the customer enjoys the best eating experience possible.

We take great care to ensure your kernel has the longest possible shelf life by controlling storage and processing conditions. By delivering the customer the best possible quality every time, MPC retains it’s reputation for quality and it’s ability to deliver high prices to growers.

9. Sustainable, long term future

MPC has a long-term commitment to our growers. We’re not just a processor – we have the goals, leadership and drive to ably steer the macadamia industry into the future. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.

MPC is not waiting for others to do what is required to better position the industry for the future. We’re leading it. MPC has been pivotal in driving many initiatives, including uniform NIS laboratory assessment systems.

We actively work with the macadamia industry throughout the world, including the AMS, Australian growers, and overseas growers and producers, to help steer the industry to a sustainable, long term future.

10. Owned by (and for) growers

MPC is a highly successful commercial enterprise that is owned by growers and has grower interests at heart. It’s been that way since our creation in 1983, when a handful of macadamia growers near Lismore decided to take control of the production and marketing of their own produce.
Since then MPC has worked hard to forge a world leadership position in macadamia processing and marketing. And while our commercial success is paramount, we still exist to this day solely for the benefit of our growers.
