cashew production and therefore belongs to the major players in the market. Growing tendency. Processing Less than 10% of African raw cashew production undergoes further processing in Africa Consumption More than 90% of global cashew is consumed outside Africa with a growing trend (~10%) the main consumers are North America, India and the EU.

3 ACi works in five countries along the Cashew Value Chain: From Farm to Fork, A Win - Win Situation for all Budget Size $97 mio in total $52 mio in cash $45 mio in-kind ACi in South-South & Triangular cooperation along the cashew value chain from inception of the project 4 ACi Vision until April 2016: Enhancing productivity and thereby increasing the annual income of small-scale farmers and processors. 430.000 farmers increase their family income by $600

($110 net) annually from cashew production; creating an accumulative additional income of $250 Million ($100 net) until April 2016 Objective Objective Objective Objective Production Processing Increasing raw cashew nut production and quality

Increasing quantity and quality of African cashew kernel and cashew byproduct processing Supply Chain Linkages Sector organization Calculations based on net income using 2010 as baseline Establish and expand

sustainable links to the global market place Advocate policies that favor cashew production and processing 5 A Strategic Alliance of Private and Public Partners ensures sustainable and market-driven implementation of activities Funding, Contributing and Implementing Partners (16) Public Private CSO / NGO
