Africa is missing out on the wealth of opportunity offered by cashew nuts which have a booming global demand. 

This reality is despite the fact that the continent grows most of the world’s raw cashews. The losses come about because cashew nut producing countries in Africa only process a fraction of them.

 

Cumulatively, African countries grow more than half the world’s supply but they are not cashing in on the opportunity due to their lack of processing industries.
