Shortage of Good Quality Raw Cashew in India

This entry was posted on Saturday, August 29th, 2009 and is filed under Uncategorized.

Indian processors are not in short of raw cashew. The average quality raw cashew of Benin, Ivory Coast, and Ghana origin are available in huge quantity. The quality of Guinea Bissau is said to be fairly good but the importers are not interested in reselling the same. Because of Forex variations, the cost of the imported Indonesian raw cashew is around Rs56 per kilo. The nuts are of very good quality but the count per kilo is between 210 to 220. Even the pieces of these nuts are very small and fetch lesser rates. So there is shortage of only good quality raw cashewnuts. Hence, the cashew kernel W240 and W320 market may move up from September.
