Olam first began its cashew journey more than twenty five years ago exporting Raw Cashew Nuts (RCN) from Nigeria. Today, we have become a leading global player in the industry, with an estimated market share of more than 20% in the RCN trade, and 15% in blanched cashew kernels and ingredients.
Olam is the only fully-integrated player in the cashew supply chain of most major producing and processing origins. Over the years, we have built up significant strengths in each value chain segment, through our proactive investments, our active engagement with our customers and our consistent delivery.
Our Cashew processing facilities span six countries across Asia and Africa, and employ over 25,000 workers, the majority of them women. This skilled and experienced workforce enables us to better understand cashew quality within our operating environment, a key element that helps reinforce our global capability.
