Figures to be confirmed next month

Australian macadamia industry heading for record harvest

The Australian macadamia industry seems to be on track for a record harvest of about 54,000 tons of nut-in-shell this year, which will be worth more than $275 million. Still, these figures won't be confirmed until next month.

Australian Macadamia Society CEO Jolyon Burnett: "There's very little left to pick up now, [so] we're on target to reach that 54,000 tons. We'll know by the end of November - that's when we 'call' the crop. That would be a really good result. It's only been in the last four or five years that we've been over the 50,000-ton mark. It will really give us confidence that the growth in supply that we've been looking for for a long time is coming."

About 29,000 tons will originate from Queensland, with about 13,000 tons of that coming from Bundaberg alone.
