Fixing a price limit on reckless imports requires strict quality control. In the export contracts, the final out-turn or the filling out turn should be above 21.5%. ( If possible it is better to assess the cutting out-turn during the customs clearance and it should not be below 27.5%). Find our price limits below –
Filling Out-turn Maximum Price Limit per tonne
21.5% – 22.5 % $1100
22.5% – 23.5% $1200
23.5% & above $1300
Raw cashew from Tanzania, Indonesia, Cambodia and Guinea Bissau are said to be better in terms of out-turn. Beninese nuts are better in terms of size and shape. So addition of $100 should be permitted for imports from such countries.
There are now more than 25 countries in the raw cashew export field. Cashew Export Promotion Council of India should make a research on the quality of imports from all these countries.
