The Cashew-tree is from West India, but is cultivated as a fruit tree many places in the Tropics. The cashew-tree is common as a utility plant i South East Asia and East Africa. The plant is a 20 meter high tree. After blooming, the stem swells and creates the cashew apple. The moon shaped nut sits directly on the cashew apple. And each apple have one stem in which there are one seed - in other words, there is one cashew nut in each stem on the cashew apple. The cashew apple itself is often eaten by the local people.
It is demanding to remove the cashew nut from the shell as it takes manual removal and at the same time it contain a black, sticky oil. Hands and skin need protection from the oil that can cause a skin reaction if not being carefully handled. Our supplier of cashew nuts have either a Fairtrade or a Sedex certification which ensure that the local cashew workers have proper work conditions. We have also visited our suppliers and carefully selected them because of their high ethically standards and social responsability.
