Dear esteemed delegates,

As CEO of SAMAC, on behalf of IMS’23, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all of you. We are thrilled to be hosting the 9th IMS, which promises to be an exciting and informative event. This year’s symposium will bring together experts, growers, processors, and other stakeholders from across the macadamia industry to share knowledge and experiences, explore new trends and innovations, and forge valuable connections.

We believe that the macadamia industry is one of the most exciting and dynamic sectors in agriculture today, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this important field. With South Africa leading the way in macadamia production, processing, and marketing, we are excited to share our expertise and insights with colleagues from around the world.

Our program is packed with a diverse range of sessions, workshops, and networking events that we believe will provide valuable learning opportunities for all attendees. We are confident that you will find the content of the conference both interesting and insightful, and we hope that it will inspire new ideas and strategies to help grow and improve the industry.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all our sponsors, exhibitors, and partners who have made this event possible. Without their support, we would not be able to bring together such a diverse and knowledgeable group of participants.

We look forward to meeting and engaging with you over the course of the event and hope that you enjoy your time in South Africa.

Lizel Pretorius
CEO, SAMAC on behalf of IMS’23
