THE TRADE TRIP OF CASHEW NUTS
The Dutch are big fans of cashew nuts. The delicious, soft nuts are always present in most pantries. The Netherlands is therefore a major importer of cashew nuts. About 50% of all cashew nuts in the world come from Vietnam. The Netherlands imports just under 10% of those cashew nuts. Yet more than 70% of the total number does not come directly from Vietnam, but from Ivory Coast and other African countries. The main products that are imported from Ivory Coast are cashew nuts, soybeans and cocoa. Time for change! By purchasing your cashew nuts directly from Mama-Africa, you shorten the production chain and you can obtain fresher products cheaper.
