Our Products 

Our Innovation 

Process Innovation

First company to start exporting roasted cashews in bulk as well as retail packs in large volumes from India in 2011 by installing continuous frying lines, dry roasters, and canning and pouch packing lines.

Product Innovation

Developed Skin-On cashews. The bitter elements of the skin of un-blanched cashews are reduced to create a flavor rich natural edible product. The product is high in fiber, lower carbs and having very high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values.

Packaging Innovation

Introduced the environment friendly flexi pouch packing system in 1998 which is being used by the Cashew industry all round the world. This not only reduced the packing material cost by half but also solved the problem of disposing the metal tins at customers end.
