Welcome to the New Zealand Macadamia Society

The New Zealand Macadamia Society promotes the development of a sustainable macadamia industry in New Zealand.

Macadamia varieties have been extensively trialled in New Zealand and cultivars are available which are successful in our growing conditions. The NZMS provides a national forum for the exchange of information and encourages research into all aspects of the industry. 

Field days, seminars and a website provide a practical framework for development of industry guidelines and standards. The NZMS is a small horticultural organisation, nevertheless, it represents members to other organisations, governmental authorities and the media.

The New Zealand Macadamia Society (NZMS) represents some 70+ growers, processors and others with an interest in macadamias.

The NZMS provides a wide range of information to members. It is developing the Macadamia Accreditation Quality Standards, Mac-acc program, for orchard best practice. This work is important for quality purposes, to comply with food safety standards and to ensure traceability.

Adopted by growers it could also provide guidelines should industry wide challenges present themselves such as has happened with PSA in kiwifruit.
