We are relatively new to this trade. We started in 2012 exporting RCN from Bissau, Ivory Coast and Tanzania to processors in India. We have recently partnered with a processor in Mangalore, India and exported edible cashew nuts to Middle east. We will strengthen our vertically integrated activity in the coming years in cashew trade.
