BNL has a fully-fledged macadamia processing factory, and it maintains a fleet of vehicles for transporting produce from the farmers and produce aggregators and also for farmer advisory services .
BNL principally processes and exports macadamia nuts. Macadamia is an evergreen tree native of Australia. It produces edible nuts whose quality is mainly judged by its oil content. Its oil is unsaturated and is mainly used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry. Macadamia nuts have a hard seed coat enclosed in a green husk that splits open as the nut matures. The Macadamia nut is considered a prime edible nut because of its delicate taste and numerous health benefits.
