The Murrimo Macadâmias company, established in Mozambique under a joint venture between a company in South Africa and another in the Netherlands, is on schedule to harvest its first batch of nuts, five years after its planting in Gurué in the central province of Zambezia.

The consortium, made up of South African companies Crookes Brothers Limited and White Bird International BV, of the Netherlands, with experience in the production of fruits and other crops in Swaziland and Zimbabwe, has already invested more than US$24 million in planting macadamia on a 3,000-hectare plot, of which 240 hectares have already been planted.

The Director of Human Resources of the company, Palelane Junior, told Mozambican newspaper, O País, that the company has already secured markets for the nuts, particularly in Europe, Asia and North America, “and we are now committed to ensuring the quality of the product so that nothing fails.”

In addition to the 240 hectares of macadamia nuts, Murrimo Macadâmias also produces maize and beans in a 660-hectare area, products that are sold locally for domestic consumption and to supply small animal feed factories.
