Much of the cashew currently produced in Cambodia is sent to Vietnam to be processed, making it difficult for growers of premium or organic cashews to benefit from their differentiated produce.

While Cambodia is the 9th largest producer of cashew, demand outstrips supply due to a lack of processing facilities and production technology, regulatory challenges and changing tastes (increasing demand for organic products).

The Cashew Working Group's mission is to:

  • Conduct stakeholder and export market analysis

  • Analyze domestic processing feasibility

  • Share of information and networking

  • Engage in policy dialogue
