Australian production and prices from 2013
In shell production volume is based on in shell receipts supplied by the Australian Macadamia Handlers Association (AMHA) which represents 90% production in Australia.
From 2013 the AMHA agreed to collect and provide the statistics for the average in shell price paid to growers based on the total amount paid to purchase in shell excluding GST but inclusive of all subsidies/bonuses and freight. The average in shell price published is based on actual sound kernel recovery rates.
The in shell price for the previous season is published each year following the quarterly AMHA meeting held in April of the following year. As an example, the 2022 season price will be published in late April 2023.
