SATTVA Agro Expo Pvt. Ltd. has an established history in Processing and Marketing of Cashew kernels. It is the first of its kind venture in Tamil Nadu (TN), formed to address the new opportunities in the export Cashew market, viz., organic cashew processed with Food Safety certification (HACCP).
Cashew Agri Export Zone Project
Sattva proudly partnered with Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO) in the establishment of a Cashew Agri Export Zone (AEZ), in five contiguous cashew producing districts of Cuddalore, Perambalur, Thanjavur, Pudukottai and Sivaganga. The aim of the project is to produce cashew kernels of international quality, assuring food safety of the product, export worthy packing, usage of solar drying and improved processing techniques.
Sattva is in an advanced stage of establishing a Rs. 14.99 Crores (USD 3.25 Million) modern cashew processing and packaging facility in a 25,000 sq. mt. factory site, at Kattandikuppam Village amidst lush green cashew farms, located about 12 kms. from Panruti, near Cuddalore. On completion of the 3 phases, the project will have a capacity to produce around 12000 Tonnes/annum of Cashew Nuts by adopting Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
Model cashew demonstration farms has been planned to train the farmers in best practices. A gradual but definite change from conventional to organic farming will be effected among its contract farmers and sustainable development practices followed. Several Self Help Groups (SHG) of the small farmers have been formed to enable contract farming and formation of Export Production Villages (EPV) for this purpose.A training centre to educate workers on cashew processing techniques, personal hygiene and sanitation, etc. has been established.
Sattva also proposes to establish facilities for production of by-products such as Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL), a stream of exportable derivative chemicals from CNSL and bio-fuel briquettes from cashew husk and shell.
Sattva takes pride in this project that generates employment in the backward region and in contributing to the upliftment of the socially downtrodden. The cashew farmers form an important part of the supply chain.
