INDIA's Mangalore-based cashew manufacturer and exporter, Achal Industries, has become successful in producing the world's first biodynamic cashew and delivering the first shipment to an overseas buyer. The first consignment of three tonnes was shipped out to Germany last week under the Demeter label. This will be marketed through the German buyer, Rapunzel Ag. The company believes biodynamics is a natural extension to organic farming and there is a good demand from consumers in Europe for the product.
