Macadamia Prices 2021

In 2019, farmers in Nyeri, Meru and Embu sold a kilogramme of macadamia at over Sh200. Last year, they got between Sh160 and Sh200 per kilo. The buyer was a Chinese firm in Athi River, Machakos County. Mr Steve Mwangi, who sold his 1.5 tonnes of macadamia at a throw-away price, blames his woes on grasping middlemen. “The middlemen discouraged the Chinese firm from dealing with us directly,” Mr Mwangi says, adding, the traders have appointed themselves agents of the Athi River-based company.

They buy the nuts at very low prices, then resell to the firm exorbitantly, making a killing in the process. Farmers who choose to sell directly to the Chinese company have their produce rejected, he claims. “I tried taking my produce to the factory in Athi River but they rejected my nuts, advising me to sell it through the agents,

Once the hope for tea and coffee growers of an alternative source of income, macadamia farming has turned into a veritable nightmare. Prices have plummeted due to a global economic shutdown occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic, with export markets in Europe, America and Asia locked down. Mr Peter Muchemi from Kangaita in Tetu Constituency has been a macadamia farmer for 20 years, a venture he took up after retiring as an employee of the Kenya Farmers Association. As the business boomed, he contracted 50 farmers to grow the crop. In what counted as his financial breakthrough, from 280 trees, he would harvest 4,000 kilos that would translate to Sh800,000 two years ago.
