Our new organic, single-origin cashews are now available to enjoy.
But what exactly are the benefits of choosing single-origin ingredients?
Unique flavours and characteristics:
Single-origin products often have distinct and unique flavours and characteristics that are specific to the region or farm where they were grown. This may be dependent on the climate, type of soil, and surrounding vegetation. This can provide a more interesting and varied taste experience, as well as allow for greater appreciation of the nuances of the product.
We’re certain that the lush tropical climes of the Western Ghats have something to do with why these cashews are so juicy and delicious!
Traceability and transparency:
Because single-origin products come from a single source, it is easier to trace their origins and understand the production process. It’s much harder to hide any shady middle-men, and more straightforward to hold those along the way to account.
Customers can trace the journey of our organic cashews from the farm to their hands, so you can rest assured knowing you are making informed choices about the ethical and environmental aspects of your purchase.
Support for small-scale farmers and local communities:
As with all of our products, these single-origin nuts are produced by small-scale farmers and cooperatives. You know your money is going to the network of farming families at Fair Trade Alliance Kerala and the direct support helps sustain local economies, providing these farmers and producers with fair compensation for their efforts.
Single-origin products often require less transportation and processing than products sourced from multiple locations. Our cashews move from the farm to the packing warehouse, to port to our factories, reducing the carbon footprint of the product.
With single-origin products there is often greater control over the quality of the product, meeting certain standards year after year. You know that in every one of these boxes are high-quality, juicy cashews. Point blank. This can help to ensure that the product meets certain standards and provides a consistent level of quality.
And, on top of all of this, the newest addition to our range is also organic with added value as they are also packed into their boxes in Kerala, meaning even more of the money stays within the country of origin!
So single-origin products go beyond being a simple commodity. They represent a connection to the land, a celebration of diversity, and a conscious choice for consumers who value quality, transparency, and the positive impact of their purchases on both local communities and the environment.
