Building a Sustainable Cashew Processing Industry

TechnoServe is an implementing partner in the African Cashew Initiative, which works to increase the quantity and quality of cashews produced and processed on the continent. In Burkina Faso, TechnoServe helps processors improve and expand their operations through employee trainings, technology transfer and other critical forms of technical assistance. Participating processors receive training in food safety, quality control and other areas of operations to help them produce top-quality nuts for the growing international market. TechnoServe also helps link processors to buyers, lenders and investors.
