This batch of macadamia originates from Krông Nang district. During the dispatch ceremony, the chairman of the People’s Committee of this district, Vu Van My, said that Krong Nang was home to 2,363 ha of macadamia which provided about 1,700 tons of nuts.

This is a very important event because Japan is currently one of the largest macadamia nut consumption markets in the world, he said.

The successful official export of macadamia products to the Japanese market – a very demanding market – will be a prerequisite to create more opportunities for businesses in Dak Lak in general and Krong Nang in particular to access large markets.

On this occasion, the Damaca Nguyên Phuong Joint Stock Company of Krông Nang district signed a memorandum of understanding with the Japanese company OLTY for the first shipment of macadamia nuts.
