National Residue Survey macadamias 2019-20

We are delighted to announce that Australia’s macadamia industry has been awarded 100% compliance in the National Residue Survey (NRS) for the 23rd consecutive year.

The program involves the testing of Australian macadamias for a range of chemical residues and environmental contaminants, which ensures the macadamia industry can meet quality assurance and market access requirements for domestic and international markets.

Our industry has achieved a perfect score every year since the NRS first commenced in 1996, a record that is unmatched by any other Australian fresh product. It highlights the outstanding skill and commitment of Australian macadamia growers and processors and their dedication to sustainable on-farm practices and world-class post-harvest handling.
