The Cashew (Anacardium occidentale) is a tree in the flowering plant family Anacardiaceae. It is widely grown in tropical climates. West Africa accounts for 70% of internationally traded world raw cashew nuts.
AVEL is one of the world leaders in trading of raw cashew nuts. Our success in the cashew business has arisen out of developing a Multi-Origin, Multi-Destination & Multi-Level sales strategy. We source from different African origins and sell into processing destinations India and Vietnam. We have an established sales network in these destinations where we operate on basis of delivering stocks directly to the factory gate. We supply in store, CIF or on High Seas Sales basis in lot sizes as desired by the processors. We also have a team at each destination to ensure proper quality and logistical controls.
In addition our procurement network in African countries of Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau and Tanzania ensures high quality and timely delivery. We also have a dedicated team of expert quality controllers who have origin specific knowledge about cashew which has resulted in AVEL becoming one of the world leaders in trading raw cashew nuts.
