Royal Macadamia (Pty) Ltd. was established in 1996 by seven Macadamia nut farmers.
Now ten shareholders, together with several farmers, supply Macadamia nuts to the factory. Our concern for the environment has resulted in extra efforts to adhere to good agricultural methods on the farms and producers are encouraged to implement Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), Integrated Pest Management (IPM) – to minimize chemical applications – and to work towards certification.
Farming has changed from a peaceful, gratifying vocation to a nerve-racking struggle for survival.
Remarkable innovative ideas and labor saving inventions to counter the escalating production costs have come to the fore. During 2002 Royal started value-adding by introducing roasted Macadamias and Macadamia-oil. This was increased by introducing:
Material for compost, garden mulching and combustible material for blast furnaces.(This renewable resource can replace fire wood in the brick manufacturing sector which can contribute to job creation especially in the rural areas.
Defined in the expression “conformance to requirements”, quality is a customer’s determination. It is based upon the customers actual experience with the product, measured against the requirements – stated or unstated – and always represents a moving target in a competitive market.
