Aussie swim champ goes nuts
Australian swimming sensation and culinary king, Eamon Sullivan, is lending his support to macadamia growers by becoming the face of Australian macadamia nuts for the second year in a row.
Macadamias are grown along the eastern seaboard of New South Wales and Queensland, from Nambucca Heads in the south through to Mackay in the north. About 60% of the Australian crop is produced in the NSW Northern Rivers district.
There are approximately 850 macadamia growers in Australia, producing around 35,500 tonnes in 2010 with an export value of around A$120-130 million per annum.
Eamon, a two-time Olympian with three medals under his belt, will be cheering on Australian macadamia farmers as they prepare for what is expected to be one of the biggest crops since 2006.
Eamon said, “I enjoy a handful of macadamias every day because they have so much going for them. They’re rich in fibre, contain plenty of protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fatty acids, antioxidants like manganese. The crisp texture, delicate buttery flavour and versatility make Australian macadamias a fantastic cooking ingredient.”
Jolyon Burnett, CEO of the Australian Macadamia Society said, “It’s fantastic to have the support of a fine Aussie athlete like Eamon Sullivan and it’s exciting to see him backing up our growers who work hard to produce the highest quality macadamia nuts in the world.”
