Our Partners

Bundaberg Macadamias

Bundaberg Macadamias Pty Ltd (BUM) is a non-profit service company for its shareholders. Their main purpose is to provide efficient machinery to service each property maximizing the economies of scale and reducing capital.

As a co-operative company owned by the property owners, shareholding is based on actual hectares planted to macadamias.

Bundaberg Macadamias:

  • Buys some new equipment outright but leases larger items.
  • Machinery is rotated around the properties on a needs basis and this is managed and operated by MFM employees.
  • Maintains its own machinery but uses outside assistance on the more technical maintenance.
  • Constructs some machinery for its own use. This is normally larger scale advanced machines that are not available from outside manufacturers. This has been a key element in gaining efficiencies for a larger scale operation.
  • Contracts machinery out to independent macadamia growers within the Bundaberg region.

Bundaberg Sugar Ltd

Bundaberg Sugar Ltd and BUM have joined together to form a company called BundySort Pty Ltd. BundySort Pty Ltd is managed by MFM.

BundySort Pty Ltd

BundySort Pty Ltd is a sorting and drying service company to its shareholders and the local macadamia industry.
