Here you can discover your cashew from factory to supermarket.
Grown in Africa and Asia
Cashews grow on trees in Africa and Asia, mainly on small plots or in the bush. After the yield, we source directly from local exporters, cooperative farmer unions or farmer groups.
We have also initiated new plantations ourselves: we have started tree plantations in 66 villages near our factory in India. 40 of these villages contain workers coming to our factory at Tuticorin. To establish a connection with all the villages and the workers, we will provide cashew trees and other plants. Our goal is to contribute to the healthiness of the soil in the villages and in time, the cashew plants will be in the long term an additional source of income for the inhabitants.
Processed in Vietnam or India
After being transported to our factories in Vietnam or India, we steam, shell, peel, grade and pack the cashews as raw kernels. To oversee the whole pre-processing, this all takes place in our own factories. We do not use sub-contracting, as this can lead to less transparency and a blurred vision of who does what type of work and where. Our single roof processing philosophy guarantees a decent income and safe working conditions for our employees with full control over food safety and quality.
Shipped to Europe via the port of Rotterdam
After an independent laboratory has checked the quality of the cashew kernels, they are shipped to the port of Rotterdam. From there they are transported by road to our distribution centre in the Netherlands.
Roasted in local factories
From the distribution centre our cashews travel all over Europe. At local factories they are roasted to gold brown and vacuum packed into big bags to maintain the best quality and taste. From there the cashews are divided into their final consumer bag or cup.
Displayed in your store
To end their trip, the cashews are transported to the distribution centres and supermarket retailers. From there, they are delivered to your store for you to enjoy.
