Olaf Noorman, Mfc’s CEO Stated About The Investment

In a statement issued by Monchy Food. Co, CEO, Olaf Noorman, the investment aims to ensure that their products are purchased in proximity to the origin, for maximum benefits to the local economy and environment. One of Tanzania’s largest export products is cashew; however, only 5% of raw cashew nut processing in Tanzania into cashew kernels.

This means that the majority of Tanzanian raw cashew nuts are exported to Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia,…)  for processing before being transported to Europe, with an added distance of approximately 11,000 kilometers. This lengthy journey results in the unnecessary emission of a large quantity of CO2, which has detrimental effects on the environment.

Olaf Noorman emphasized that the investment would enable Mfc to process cashews close to their origin in Tanzania. This approach will significantly reduce the distance traveled, minimizing the carbon footprint, and boosting the local economy. Besides that, helping Tanzanian’s economy by growing their trade sector can help improve the livelihood of Tanzanians.

Tanzania Used 70,000 Tons Of Raw Cashew Nuts Locally In 2022

The Ministry of Industry and Trade, in collaboration with the Tanzania Confederation of Industry (CTI), is encouraging the use of raw cashew nuts within the country. Previously, Tanzania largely exported its raw cashews to India and Vietnam, but now local factories are actively processing these nuts to create more profits for Tanzanians. In fact, last year, the country (Tanzania) processed nearly 100% (from 34,000 tons in 2021) more cashew nuts than the previous year, reaching 70,000 tons! With this initiative, Tanzania’s cashew nut industry is growing, supporting the livelihoods of many, and contributing to the country’s economic development. In addition, The Cashew Council of Tanzania (CBT) said it aims to raise raw cashew production to 400,000 tonnes in the 2022/23 crop year from 240,159 tonnes produced in the 2021/2022 crop.
