We’re exceptionally well-certified.
We’re the first cashew processor in Côte d’Ivoire to be BRC certified on the entire process, from reception of raw cashew nuts to packaging of kernels.
Our plant complies with the highest EU and US food safety standards — HACCP, BRC-GS Certification and GFSI grade “A”. We’re one of the only African cashew processors who can say this.
No small feat.
We exports over 1,400 tonnes of kernels every season. We supply some of the largest distributors in the US and Europe and are on track to be able to expand our production facilities year on year.
We invest in people. Particularly women.
We employ young, vibrant women and men from our nearby communities, bringing them jobs and a profitable and sustainable value chain -meaning we empower the welfare, education and development of our people and their community.
75% of our employees are female, as well as 50% of our leadership team.
The Cashew Coast is fun, so it’s no surprise, you’ll notice, that we’re all smiling.
