Driving up to the Batian Nuts factory, one cannot help but admire the structures that stand in place, the green environment, and the semi-permanent structure set up to house macadamia seedlings not far off from the entrance. For a factory, the place is unusually quiet. This, as we later come to learn from Mr. Lawrence Mukora, the production and quality director of Batian Nuts, is because they are yet to begin the macadamia procurement season.
Batian Nuts-as a business- was incorporated in July 2017. They would then begin the construction of the warehouse and other facilities that stand ground later in September of the same year. Production would soon begin in 2018, with Batian registering a whopping 300 tonnes on their first batch. Mr. Mukora then explained that it would only increase from there and a year later, Batian had a total increase of 220 tonnes.
