About UKWAZI Makadamia
'UKWAZI' = 'KNOWLEDGE'
In Zulu, the word 'ukwazi' means 'knowledge.' It's true that we know macadamias. But our name reflects a commitment to more than just great tasting macadamias.
When you buy direct from UKWAZI, you're buying from the farmer, roaster, bottler, and distributor. Not only that, we're owned by the college in Africa our profits support.
A Better Nut.
We don't just sell macadamia products, we grow the macadamias ourselves in our orchards in the Kingdom of Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), a tiny nation in Southern Africa. Our macadamia orchards, called the Tree of Life Project, were the first in the kingdom.
With UKWAZI, you give jobs to unemployed workers and students working to pay for college. From our orchards, the macadamias are processed by a trusted partner and then delivered to our FDA-approved facility in Austin, Texas.
In Austin, our team bottles the macadamia oil and regularly roasts macadamia nuts to ensure you enjoy the freshest macadamias around.
Throughout the process, our macadamias are grown, processed, roasted, and handled in the total absence of peanuts or any other tree nuts . . . because we are a macadamia-only brand.
A Better World.
We're more than great quality macadamias.
With UKWAZI, you're also providing a college education for African men and women who would otherwise be without. 100% of our profits fund college scholarships in Africa.
How can we say this? Because it is true.
UKWAZI Makadamia is a macadamia brand owned and operated by African Christian College Educational and Benevolent Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States. We also operate African Christian College -- an private and fully accredited university in Eswatini.
Our company is primarily a private, Christian college with our macadamia farm and brand part of our long-term sustainability efforts in providing quality and affordable education to African students.
So, we don't give a percentage of profits to charity . .. our entire brand is operated by a charity working daily to transform African students. Meet some of the students you're helping when you purchase UKWAZI macadamias.
