The Raw Cashew Nut (RCN) is harvested during a period of approximately 3 months. Ivory Coast has one of the biggest crops with more than 700,000 MT (700 million kg!) of RCN. India and Vietnam are also big producing countries. Vietnam has the biggest processing capacity in the world which exceeds their own crop volume! As a result, Vietnam imports a lot of RCN from Africa which are after processing, promoted as Vietnamese kernels.
We work directly with cashew farmers in Burkina Faso, Benin and Togo but we do source Raw Cashew Nuts from other African countries as well. Most of the product we buy, is used for processing in our own factories. The bought overload, is supplied to our long term partners in Vietnam.
