A Macadamia nut. One of these simple, creamy white globes weighs in at about 2.6g and looks, well, relatively unremarkable.
But don’t be fooled by their simple exterior! These little nuts are punching above their weight in taste and nutrients, and even helping support a more sustainable farming and food future.
Andrew Emmott from the Nutcellar has been working with smallholder macadamia farmers in Malawi since the early 1990’s when his father planted the first demonstration trees. Andrew's mum developed and ran the first macadamia factory which for a few years processed the national crop. During the past 25 years Andrew has been working to get the smallholder sector started and with his father they also set up a charity, the Neno Macadamia Trust, to provide support to the newly formed cooperatives.
