9th International Macadamia Symposium 2023


Background on symposium

Get ready for an unparalleled experience as the International Macadamia Symposium 2023 returns with a fresh approach to capturing the attention and imagination of our audience.

Macadamia nuts have gained immense popularity in recent years due to their unique flavour, high nutritional value, and versatility in culinary applications. This year’s symposium offers a chance to explore the science behind these delicious nuts and their potential in  the global  market. With sessions covering topics such as cultivation, processing, product offerings, and sustainability, attendees can expect to gain valuable insights into every aspect of the macadamia industry.

We, as SAMAC, are thrilled to be hosting this year’s IMS in South Africa, at The Capital Zimbali Coastal Estate. It’s located in an area known as the Dolphin Coast, situated on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) about 25 km north of Umhlanga Rocks and bordering on the south of the popular beach holiday destination of Ballito.

Macadamias are extensively cultivated in KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Limpopo, all neighbouring provinces in South Africa. These regions are well-suited to macadamia production due to their warm climate, abundant rainfall, and fertile soil.

We are thrilled to be able to meet again in person and we hope that you will be able to join us at this prestigious event.
