The dream of bringing Binh Phuoc cashew nuts to the worldIn 2018, Binh Phuoc province was honored to be the only locality recognized by the National Office of Intellectual Property to be granted the Geographical Indication registration certificate for cashew products. This has become the driving force for the development of cashew nut production and processing enterprises in the region, including Golden Cashew Nut Company Limited.

Founded in 2019, Gold Cashew has been pursuing the goal of bringing cashew nuts from the red basalt land of Binh Phuoc to the world.

Gold Cashew also leverages the advantages of new processing technologies such as roasting cashews under high pressure, advanced oil-free roasting technology together with the clean and quality raw materials from the “cashew capital” of Binh Phuoc.
These products all meet food hygiene and safety standards
Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong - Sales Director of the company said because of such positive changes, products of Gold Cashew gain a competitive edge over the traditional roasted cashew products. Some of these outstanding features are no cholesterol, no preservatives, no GMOs and no colorants. The products, however, still manage to retain the sweet taste, white color and wonderful nutrition from natural cashews, ensuring safety for users. Notably, our products are highly recommended by experts as well as widely accepted by health-conscious customers.

Specifically, the output of cashew nuts for domestic consumption is about 30-40% and for foreign export, that number reaches 60-70%. Exports to other potential markets such as the UK, Dubai, France, China, and Europe are also being promoted by the company.
Gold Cashew - Raising the bar for Binh Phuoc cashew nut brandOn sharing about the process of building the company, Ms. Huong said: “On a remarkable day in mid-November 2020, the Australian Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Phuoc provincial government visited our factory when Gold Cashew was preparing an order for an Australian customer. Unexpectedly, Ms. Julianne Cowley - Australian Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City said that her family also chooses products of Gold Cashew and highly appreciates the manufacturing process as well as the product quality. This has provided motivation and sparked enthusiasm within all of us to achieve the current success.

As a new business that is in the early stage of development, we are facing many difficulties, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Ms. Huong said that due to the closure and social distancing order, the global supply chain has been disrupted, leading to rising freight costs. Furthermore, escalating production costs and restricting trade, travel among countries also hindered the process of promoting export goods; Exports to foreign partners (USA, Europe, etc.) were also delayed.

However, in the face of such difficulties, the company's staff still researches, consults with consumers and puts great care into each product to bring to the market fresh cashew flavors that could satisfy a diverse range of customers. This is because, for everyone, this is not merely a job but also an ambition to thrive, an aspiration to bring homeland cashew nuts to the world which contributes to the employment opportunities for the locals, as well as the socio-economic development of Binh Phuoc province.
Roasted salted cashew products meet OCOP Binh Phuoc standards
In the pursuit of the "cashew dream", Golden Cashew Co., Ltd. is determined to offer consumers high-quality products, help cashew farmers through offtake agreements and build a value chain from farm to fork for Binh Phuoc cashew nuts. In addition, the company also aims to become a pioneer in the field of processing and exporting cashew nuts nationwide, as well as help raise the value of cashew nuts to a new level in the international market. If this dream comes true, one day, international customers might associate the image of cashew nuts with the word: Vietnam.
