Fast Facts and Philosophy of Braemar Nuts CIRCA 1992
Braemar Nuts is a Boutique Macadamia Processing Establishment that embraces exceptional quality and seeks full optimization in order to extract the highest value of the macadamia product in a sustainable market.
Braemar Nuts annually achieves the total sale of harvest by focusing on main principles namely:
All experience and data gained over the years have been analysed and put to the betterment of the industry and have allowed us to provide a top end quality product to our customers and achieve maximum returns from our crops.
As farmers ourselves we understand sustainable farming practices. Product research and development, experimental farming trails and farming technology are key functions for us.
Our in-house advisory capacity and selective expert consultants support a wide range of field extension capabilities. In this regard we provide grower extension services to assist farmers with fertilizer and spray programs as well as influential weather patterns.
Through our Nursery we constantly progress by experimenting with various aspects of planting science and cultivar trails. We have a diverse cultivar selection and are at present also cultivating trees that produce larger kernel sizes and higher SKR’s.
Braemar Nuts first Orchards were established in 1996. We are celebrating 26 tested and proven harvests in 2022.
Our de-husking facilities were put in operation in 2005. Our first Nut in Shell exports started in 2021 and we also started processing growers crops since then.
We have expanded our drying capacity to 800 metric tons per annum and will start processing kernel in 2023 with a state-of-the-art processing facility. Our value adding lines for by-products such as macadamia oil, milk, butter and snacks bars will be operational in 2024.
Large storage facilities to weather the storm against fluctuating markets are an integral part of our establishment.
We pride ourselves by not being reliant on a finance house or banking institution for funding support. Growers can therefore be assured that payments are not delayed by 3rd party institutions and will receive swift payments. Accurate sampling and individual grower batch processing will ensure that each Growers batches are processed individually and a final true value is reflected.
A proficiently crafted risk model serves a selective group of farmers at present, with very favourable results and payment terms.
Braemar Nuts is expanding this model towards 20 Independent farmers, thereby utilising a dominant driver namely individual quality consideration and awareness, prompting maximum added value to the participating farmers.
