National Recovery Plan a new tool in Australia’s battle to save endangered wild macadamia populations
Australia is the natural home of macadamias, and the only place on earth where they grow wild. Every commercial macadamia crop in the world can be traced back to the wild macadamia trees that still grow in the Australian rainforest.

The Australian macadamia industry’s commitment to ongoing consumer research stretches back many years, with the insights gained helping to shape our international marketing strategy. For our latest research project we have taken a different approach to previous studies, both in terms of the research methodology and the way the findings are being delivered.
