A macadamia processing plant near Lismore has cracked a world-first for nut treatment.
The pasteurisation machine at the Alphadale company MPC reduces levels of micro-organisms through non-chemical methods.
"The pasteuriser treats food in a way that reduces the levels of potentially pathogenic micro-organisms that may be present," general manager of MPC, Stephen Lee, said.
"The pasteuriser that we are using uses non-chemical treatment, so it is only using a combination of heat, steam and atmospheric pressure on the macadamia kernel," he said.
It took three years of researching equipment to settle on the new technology that cost $1.7 million.
Mr Lee said the system would reduce the need for product recalls over health concerns such as salmonella.
"We're the first processor in the world that has installed a machine that is capable of achieving a 5-log reduction of salmonella on macadamia kernel," Mr Lee said.
The pasteuriser treats food in a way that reduces the levels of potentially pathogenic micro-organisms that may be present.
"Obviously the impact of a product recall is not just the costs associated with the recall, but it's the damage to brand reputation," he said.

The pasteuriser that we are utilizing utilizes non-substance treatment, so it is just utilizing a blend of warmth, steam and air weight on the macadamia piece.

Big things come to those who are ready to get the best out of any situation. Those who buckle under pressure and stress situations are less likely to succeed.
