Cashew passes through several stages and actors as it moves from the farm to the consumer. At each step of the way value is added to the raw nut. each person or company involved in the value chain must contribute something to increase the value: resources, expertise, and taking risks like providing financing.
A Cashew Nut Trader cannot make money from cashew without a buyer. Likewise a buyer of Cashew nut depends on truckers to get the cashew Nut to the port, and an exporter relies on the shipping company to export the raw nuts abroad. each person in the cashew value chain should make a fair income based on the inputs and services that they contribute to move the cashew to the market.
