Building a Vibrant 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 Benin, TechnoServe provides processors with technical assistance to open new factories and make existing facilities more productive and profitable. Participating processors receive hands-on training in food safety, quality control and other aspects of production to help their products comply with internationally recognized standards. In addition to providing operational assistance, TechnoServe helps link processors to financing and international buyers.
