This high value cash crop is grown and harvested primarily in Africa and some parts of Asia. Africa has more than doubled production over the last decade. We are one of the major companies in the cashew business with fully integrated sourcing, processing and distribution networks. Our sourcing footprint spans all cashew producing origins in Africa : Tanzania and Mozambique in East Africa & Benin, Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea Bissau in West Africa.
ETG is an integrated player with presence across the entire spectrum, Raw Cashew Nut Trading, Cashew Processing and Cashew Kernel trading.
We operate 8 cashew processing facilities across Africa, creating thousands of jobs in areas where opportunities are scarce. Our Cashew kernel, traded under the “Korosho” brand, are exported to Canada, USA, United Kingdom and the Middle East.
ETG has a strong footprint in the major cocoa producing origins. West Africa is the heart of the cocoa crop, accounting for nearly 70% of global production. We have a significant integrated bean sourcing presence in Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea, and Togo, and are increasing our market share in Ecuador, South America. Our significant investment in the supply chain, coupled with our strong commitment to supply sustainable cocoa, makes us the counter-party of choice for the industry. ETG has partnered with all major industry players to ensure year round supply.
As a signatory of the Cocoa and Forests Initiative (CFI), we are committed to protecting and restoring forests, engaging communities, and supporting sustainable production and farmer livelihoods. See here our CFI Progress Report for 2020 – 2021.
