Marketing Update (July 2022 MacGroup)

2022 | Price J | Presentation

The global tree nut industry is facing rapidly growing supply, shipping delays and increased freight costs which is leading to increased price pressure. However, there remain many opportunities to promote consumption and drive growth to rebalance supply and demand, including focussing on innovation and new market development. Macadamias account for less than 2 per cent of the world tree nut market, providing both challenges and unique opportunities. The macadamia industry is well placed to meet consumers increasing desires for healthy whole foods, and the Australian marketing program is focussed on inspiring consumers, educating trade customers, and influencing food manufacturers to experience Australian grown macadamias.
