Building on Mozambique's long-standing reputation as one of the world's best and most prolific producers of cashews, new technologies and improved management systems for production and processing are increasing the quantity, quality, and value of Mozambican cashew kernel available for sale on the international market.

More about production and processing

Transparent systems for efficient supply chain management in the Mozambican cashew industry allow retailers and final consumers to know where cashews come from and how they are handled during their journey from farm to table. This important information also facilitates a range of quality-assuring certifications, including food safety and organic.
