About Marquis

The world’s premier macadamia supplier

The Marquis Group of companies holds the esteemed position of being the largest macadamia grower, processor, and marketer worldwide. We take pride in delivering high-quality macadamias to all five continents across the globe.

For more than thirty years, we have dedicated ourselves to perfecting our approach to macadamia farming, processing, and marketing. Our commitment to excellence has led us to establish four state-of-the-art factories, all owned by our dedicated growers.

Through Marquis Macadamias Australia and Africa, we process over 40,000 tonnes of nut-in-shell per year.

Our mission is to bring both the delicious taste and the health benefits of macadamias to the world.

We are 100% grower owned

We grow the nuts we sell, which assures consistent supply, pricing and quality to fulfil our customer’s needs all over the world.

By supporting our growers every step of the way, we create a great sense of community and together, we are able to apply the highest attention to detail in everything we do, from farm to plate.

Whether you are a global retail business, a multinational food brand, a wholesaler or a boutique food manufacturer, we have a macadamia product to meet your usage and volume requirements. Across our range of macadamia kernel, nut-in-shell, macadamia paste and oil, we will work with you to get you what you need.

End-to-end processing

Our international reputation for quality is highly prized in our industry. We take great care to ensure our macadamia products have the longest possible shelf life by controlling storage and processing conditions.

Vertically integrated from grower to customer, our farm-to-plate traceability is underpinned by our HACCP and BRC based food safety systems, our innovative world-class manufacturing facilities, and our industry-leading processes.


With our unstoppable drive for innovation, we were the first macadamia processor in the world to have installed the Napasol pasteurisation process, a validated kill step that provides a 5-log reduction of Salmonella and other microorganisms. The system uses only heat and steam to treat the kernel under precise pressure conditions. 

As a non-chemical treatment, it doesn’t impact the taste, appearance, texture and shelf-life of our products.

100% of our kernel is 5-log pasteurised and we can also supply pasteurised sawn and flavoured NIS. That means peace of mind when it comes to food safety.
