Process and Innovation
Cajuu's vision is simple
We want to bring our knowledge and family expertise of the cashew and its benefits to the world. We also want to continue to develop new and innovative cashew products and flavours, whilst putting Tanzania on the map and giving back to its cashew farming communities.
Since our grandparents forged a route into the cashew world over 40 years ago, Alibhai Store would not be what it is today without the formation of close bonds and great working relationships with local Tanzanian cashew farmers and their families.
We have built these successful relationships up over the decades with hundreds of farms across the Makonde Plateau through enabling the farmers to take ownership of their farming. We offer higher prices than bulk buyers in return for the guaranteed supply of the best product and make several donations to the farming communities to better their lives. This certainly is not for recognition but because it is the right thing to do, and we truly believe the farmers are the true heroes of this story.
Process and Ethics
The cashew harvest in Tanzania is between October and January. During this time our farmers only select cashews that naturally fall from the tree, indicating perfect ripeness. The SHELL with the NUT inside is removed from the APPLE.
What sets us apart is that our cashew nuts are only ever naturally obtained from the SHELL through hand processing thereby reducing the need for chemicals and the overall carbon footprint.
As part of our ethical stance, we have provided hand tools as well as equipment to our farming partners that protect against corrosive CNSL in the SHELL. This has made their lives better and healthier and enables them to process more cashews which in turn allows them to earn more for them and their families.
The beauty of the humble cashew is that the NUT can be kept fresh in the SHELL for over a year! This therefore means that the farmers can continue to earn through processing the cashew NUTS from the SHELLS between harvests and ensures we have enough supply all year round.
Research and Sustainability
Did you know that Tanzania is the only country in the world that is developing cashew varieties and Cashew hybrids using standard procedures for releasing crop variety acceptable by UPOV (International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants)?
As part of our strategy on Sustainability Cajuu have a close link with the professors at the ‘Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute’ (TARI) in Naliendele.
These amazing individuals advise us and our cashew farming partners to ensure that the cashew Nuts are naturally bigger, better and more resilient from harvest to harvest. They are continually working on exciting projects to advance research into the broad range of possible Cashew by-products.

Vanilla and Salted Caramel Cashew Nuts with Sugarcane Dip Snackpack Tray
The cashews are lovely. The coating is very moorish. The sugarcane was strange, very tangy. Really not what I was expecting
I am a huge fan of Cajuu and gave placed a few orders now, the latest Salt and Pepper cashews are my husbands favourite so far. My favourite still remains to be be Mango 😊
Got a 3 pack of these cashews for my husband for Easter as he doesn't eat chocolate. He was very impressed with the first one he tried which was the black pepper one and really liked the dip..he can't wait to try the others
I purchased the mango moa cashews following an order of all varieties as they are my favourite ….great product would welcome a new line of cashews which are just “plain” cashews for my husband …thank you
These are the best cashews ever! Excellent product and service. Will definately be buying again.

These Cashew Tray's are easily the best value for money snack out there. Absolutely delicious and full of flavour. It's been my go-to since working from home and a really great, healthy and filling snack. Really delicious!
My boyfriend introduced me to Cajuu a while ago and it is genuinely one of the most delicious vegan snacks I've had. Ideal for anyone who wants a quick easy and TASTY snack.
These cashews are easily the tastiest and most unique cashews I've ever had. Very rarely do you get a snack with such an original and delicious twist.
I highly recommend trying these out if you're craving an easy midday healthy and vegan snack.

These are a fabulous tasting, my teenage 3 sons are eager for me to purchase them their own individual snack bundles...lol will be ordering again very soon. With a much larger order :)
Bought as a gift for cashew loving other half and he thought they were great 👍
These cashews are really different and very tasty, especially the pepper ones. It’s great knowing you can enjoy them guilt free from an ethical employer/producer.
