-- Avocado profits have more than doubled in 2023 to Ksh 654.8 million, up from Ksh 288.6 million in 2022

-- Global Macadamia glut persists leading to a Kshs 329 million sectoral loss for the macadamia business

-- Recovery expected as Kakuzi Macadamia domestic market retail sales efforts doubled up to mitigate international market risks

-- Pretax profit down by 65% to Ksh 171.1 million from Kshs 494.7 million

-- Avocado exports to China up on last year.


The half-year trading period for the financial year 2023 are in line with our expectations given the challenging macadamia markets. As highlighted at the Annual General Meeting, we expect the global macadamia glut situation to persist throughout the balance of 2023 financial year and may be into 2024.

In 2022 the half year profits for the macadamia business were posted at Ksh 339 million. This year the situation has reversed to a loss of Ksh (329) million. The disappointment is that in our biggest markets of China, Japan and the USA, the same quality macadamia nut kernels are now selling for less than half the price recorded during the same period last year even as production volumes from all source markets continue to grow.

We remain committed to a shared prosperity business model that prioritizes all our stakeholder needs. Growing our business in a sustainable manner, actively implementing our Kakuzi, Community Partnerships, answering the call for climate action and using best practices in all we do to promote our values remains our focus.

The Directors do not recommend the payment of an Interim Dividend.
