We are the only fully-integrated company in most major producing and processing origins.

Across Asia and Africa, we have more than 15 cashew processing and packaging facilities, many of which are HACCP and BRC-certified, enabling full traceability to international standards.

Our cashew marketing offices include the USA, Europe, Dubai, India, Australia and Singapore. To complement our offerings, we offer customised value added options such as vendor-managed inventory services.

“Consistent quality and volumes over the long-term will increasingly depend on the resilience of small-scale farmers. We focus on building knowledge and skills among both farming and local trading communities, as well as promoting good labour and environmental practices. We are also proud that our supply chains for Côte d’Ivoire and Vietnam are among the first to be included in Olam AtSource – one of the most comprehensive sustainable and traceable sourcing packages in the B2B marketplace.”

Amit Khirbat
President, Edible Nuts, Cashews

Since 1989, we have built exceptional cashew sourcing networks across Asia and Africa.

Dedicated teams work in farming communities all year round, providing timely insight on raw cashew nut quality and crop profiles. This is enhanced by long-term relationships with large grower, cooperative and local trader networks, minimising the risk of supply interruptions for our customers.

We have been running economic, social and environmental impact programmes for several years in Africa. Today, we are supporting thousands of farmers in countries including Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana with many these programmes under our flagship sustainability sourcing solution - AtSource. Because we work with the farmers and cooperatives, we can also offer fully traceable Organic and/or Fairtrade cashews.

In India and Vietnam, we run fully-mechanised processing facilities that operate under superior safety and hygiene parameters. At the same time, we are pioneers in transferring the experience, skills and technologies to our cashew processing operations in Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria.

We have shortened process times, minimised control points, and incorporated precision grading and sorting to deliver more consistent quality cashews, customised cashew grades and ingredients as well as Kosher and Organic-certified varieties. Most of our facilities are HACCP and BRC-certified, enabling us to offer our customers full traceability to international standards.

We are the largest cashew processor in Africa. Our efforts to process raw cashew nuts where they are grown is appreciated by governments, customers and other agencies. In addition to providing large-scale employment opportunities, we also run health campaigns, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention initiatives, adult literacy programmes, productivity-based incentive schemes, as well as annual and cultural celebrations with the view of effectively engaging our workforce. Our processing units are based in rural communities and principally offer opportunities for women to directly earn cash incomes.

Cashew Trail

OFI is setting its 2030 targets to scale up positive change in cashew by innovating its approach to sustainability – providing customers with a pathway to drive tangible change in farming communities. This innovation is both practical, like using data to deliver training tailored to individual farmers, and disruptive, like Olam Direct, which reaches farmers further afield, giving them access to the latest market prices, and the ability to negotiate directly rather than through traditional buying agents, thereby retaining more value for their crop.
