Organic and Fair for Life macadamia oil

We provide freshly cold-pressed organic and Fair for Life macadamia oil with fairly traded macadamia nuts from our strong partner, Limbua. With respect to preserving the workers’ health on the one hand, while protecting the Kenyan nature on the other hand, Limbua only works ecologically and socially sustainable.

To round up this gain for holistic quality, we press the macadamia nuts only on demand solely mechanically without using heat, or additives. By working mechanically only, we preserve the natural characteristics of the “queen of nuts”. However, our clients may also source macadamia nut oil, virgin, from roasted seed from us. The toasty taste raises our oil to a new level of flavour.

To sum up: Either macadamia nut oil, cold-pressed, or virgin from roasted seeds: our macadamia nut oil fits to clients working in the field of high quality organic food, as much as it does to clients producing premium natural cosmetics.

Organic Fair for Life macadamia oil:
A sustainable source of income

The idea has started more than a decade ago with a trip around the world. With the aim of finding best-practise models for ” Social Entrepreneurs”, Matti Spiecker (founder of Limbua), has identified Embu (Kenya) an excellent location to realize his vision: building an international and sustainable value chain to promote sustainable endogenous growth and international knowledge sharing.

That’s exactly what we’re committed to. Thus, we started supporting him and his project partners developing Limbua in Embu, Kenya.
Thanks to Limbua, the local market in Embu has been prospering over the last years. While gaining access to the international market for the first time, Kenyan smallholders could also realize social and ecological projects in Embu with the help of Limbua and the Fair for Life-fund we support.
