Some 114,000 Tonnes of Cashew Nuts Exported in First Two Months

During the first two months of 2023, Cambodia exported 14,193 tonnes of cashew nuts to four countries, according to a report from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

Of the amount, 114,140 tones were exported to Vietnam, 27 tones to Japan, 20 tonnes to Thailand and 6.40 tonnes to South Korea, continued the source.

Cambodia is committed to producing quality cashew nuts competitive in national and international markets.

Cashew nut is Cambodia's third most exported commercial crop, after rice standing 1st and cassava 2nd.

H.E. Dith Tina, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, is cooperating with key players such as Cambodia cashew federations and associations, Ministry of Commerce, and Rural Development and Agriculture Bank to boost Cambodia's cashew nut export.

Cambodia now can produce up to 1,180,000 tonnes of cashew nuts from 700,000 hectares of land across the country.

In January 2023, the Kingdom approved a draft National Policy on Cashew Nuts 2022-2027, reconfirming its commitment to turn itself into a major cashew producer and supplier in the local, regional and global markets.
