Rarely does a business come to market with so much potential for scaling up. This start up business of 10 years has targeted the rapidly growing nut market and developed unique machinery for cleaning, decontaminating, drying, cracking, sorting, grading, roasting, coating, grinding and finally packaging of nut related products.
The investment in food technology to enable the processing of nuts has been considerable. The business is now set up and ready to mass produce. Products are being sold under a brand into resellers and corporates who either on-sell , or provide the products as part of their service. Online sales also cater to consumers who wish to buy direct but the big opportunity awaiting the new owner is the FMCG market such as the supermarket and exporting.
In addition the business provides nut processing contract services for the food industry which also has considerable scope for further growth.
The business has recently commissioned a Macadamia processing line that is modular and scalable.
The New Zealand macadamia industry is about to grow exponentially as hundreds of thousands of trees start maturing and producing crops. Macadamia growers will be requiring compliant nut processing services so demand is expected to be high.
There are lease options available to the new owner of renewing the existing lease or terminating for relocation. Would suit existing food manufacturer with FMCG networks as bolt-on business or someone looking for a platform to enter food industry.
