Mozambique to assess informal cashew sector

This article was originally published in Foodnews

MOZAMBIQUE’s National Cashew Institute (Incaju) is to carry out a study to assess the impact of the informal sector on the sale of cashew nuts. The institute’s director, Filomena Maiopué, told Notícias that the study would take four months and aims to provide data to determine more clearly Mozambique’s average annual cashew nut production. Maiopué said that the informal sector is very important, and is involved in both domestic processing and sales and the sale of product to neighbouring countries. An initial study carried out with the involvement of students from Eduardo Mondlane University showed that Mozambique’s real production could be double the figure for official market sales. It is estimated that cashew is the main source of income for over 1 400 families. In the current campaign, 105 000 tonnes of the nut are expected to be sold, compared with 113 000 tonnes last year.
