Shimla Hills commissions a new export centre at Kollam, Kerala, India
Shimla Hills recently inaugurated a cashew export centre at Kollam, Kerala. This news comes just in time when the demand for cashew, in the domestic and international market has been rising. Cashew is the third largest consumed tree nut in the world. It is the kernels extracted from the cashew nutshell that are globally traded as a commodity. Moreover, India processes approximately 60 percent of the cashews consumed globally, making India a major player at an international level.
Kollam: India's Cashew Hub
India's 80 % cashew business, i.e. processing and export takes place from Kollam. In fact, it is Central Government approved "Centre of cashew industry", and a strategically viable location that helps in promoting this business.
With our export centre at Kollam, Shimla Hills is well placed to bring consistency in the quality of cashew, which was otherwise a challenge to maintain. We are now primed to embrace the upcoming opportunities and mitigate the challenges that surround the global cashew business.
Our new cashew facility
At present we intend to start our base in Kollam solely as a packaging unit that renders initial processing capability of over 100 tonnes a month. The operations here will be limited to just procurement, re-grading and packaging cashews to meet global quality standards for further sales.
Local sourcing gives us an edge by reducing the procurement price and keeps a check on the quality of the crop. We are optimistic and thrilled with the possibility of being able to offer premium quality cashew for a growing market demand.
