Not All Nuts Are Created Equal

Despite their superior nutritional and health benefits, Macadamias haven’t shared the same ubiquitous market accessibility compared to the likes of peanuts, almonds, and cashews. The reason? Well up until now, macadamia’s unique climate and growth requirements along with their isolated farming and production locations has left them vulnerable to market exploitation. So much so that the price has more than quadrupled in the last 10 years! Costly barriers to entry at the hands of wholesalers, distributors and marketing agents, meant that macadamias came at a price point many few could afford.

South Africa - The Macadamia Captial of the World

Most people automatically think of Hawaii or Australia when someone mentions “macadamias”. Well, as it turns out, South Africa is in fact the macadamia farming capital of the world. With ideal agricultural conditions and local farmers renowned for being some of the best, South Africa currently holds the record in macadamia yields and quality.

However, their longstanding farming heritage has been threatened by political instability and land attacks, with little done to help up until now.

South Africa’s geographical isolation has meant that local farmers have had to rely on expensive middlemen to get their product into the market - each taking a cut - driving the price of macadamias up and making it more and more difficult for the farmers to make a living.

We Decided to Change That

By partnering directly with the best local South African farmers, we are able to put money back in the pockets of the farmers and bring you this premium nut at a more affordable price.

In order to ensure the long-term health of the industry, we also work with select farmers who share the same eco-friendly mindset that we as a company promote and use new sustainable and water-conserving irrigation technologies.

Our macadamia nuts and products are then packaged within a short drive from the South African farms, ensuring freshness and a more cost-effective supply chain.

No middlemen. No cutting corners. True plant-farm to table.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
