CASHEW & PEPPER
The cashew season of export usually starts between February and March to June and July; starting negotiations with end buyers from the end of November. There is very high demand; but planning and understanding the trade finance cycle is key. It is recommended that moisture content is between 8-10 percent; so that there are no quality issues. However, contracts usually state that anything below 12% is acceptable. A number of other parameters that are usually agreed to are that foreign matter is not over 5% and also any defective product is kept lower than 10%.
