We feel our brands purpose is to represent, categorise and focus on 3 core aspects of what makes Cajuu the company it is today.
We work with Tanzanian farmers to ethically source our cashews. For us, it's important to recognise the people within and behind the brand, not just the products they help create.
Since the 1970's, when our grandfather started to offer cashew nuts at his tailoring shop in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), we have been deeply embedded in the cashew industry. We therefore know a thing or two about this humble yet versatile nut as well as where and how to source the biggest and best!
We’re determined to produce our products with as little detrimental effect to the planet as possible. We grow, harvest and deshell the cashews in Tanzania, then send directly to the UK, so we have a low carbon footprint. Our range only incorporates the finest, natural ingredients, and our packaging is entirely plastic free and recyclable.
Lower Carbon Footprint
We're are constantly looking into ways to lower our carbon footprint. The largest contribution so far is transporting our cashews directly from Tanzania to the UK. Africa exports 90% of its shelled cashews cashews to Asia for processing (deshelling) which has a huge impact on global emissions. We've also planted, and will continue to plant, cashew trees to offset our carbon footprint and we're in the process of calculating what our overall emissions are in the quest to become carbon negative.
Natural, Vegan and Plastic Free
Cashew nuts are naturally loaded with vitamins and minerals, and we use only natural, vegan ingredients to ensure you get the best nutrition, and maintain clean, healthy and enjoyable cashew snacking. Our flavours have an African direction to them to harp back to Cajuu's roots! Additionally, by becoming 100% plastic free, we’re helping to reduce plastic pollution. All of our products are in plastic free packaging, including our cashew and date Bites which come in a cellulose bag that is both recyclable and compostable. We encourage you to reuse our packaging, including our Tubes and the glass Dip jar in the Tray range, or to dispose of the packaging it correctly.
We source our cashew nuts exclusively and directly from the Makonde plateau in southern Tanzania. Owing to years of best farming practice, our cashews are of the highest quality and largest size globally. Once here, our range is produced at a SALSA accredited facility thereby maintaining the highest levels of quality.
Cashew Quality and Size
Our cashews are of the highest AA grade quality owing to years of excellent farming practice and care. We only use '180' size cashews (known as the 'King of Cashew' and are recognized as the largest globally) for maximum snacking experience! Try our range and see for yourself :)
Single Origin and Traceability
UK Made and Accredited
The cashews are collected and quality checked in Tanzania, then directly ship freighted to the UK (which can take up to 6 weeks). Here, they are seasoned, roasted and packed at a SALSA accredited facility. We therefore maintain the highest levels of production and quality standards right through to you!
Great taste & flavour nuts will be buying again.
The nuts alone are absolutely delicious but with the addition of the dip... There are no words. It changes the flavour completely! And it's out of this world. By far the best nuts I have ever tasted!
This flavour was great - you can taste every ingredient and they're all really nicely balanced . They've also got a little bit of heat which is great. 10/10 would (and have) recommend.
Lake Natron Salt and Pepper Cashew Nuts Tube
Great tasting lovely and spicy. Partner preferred the salt and black pepper thought the other to spicy but I really enjoyed them top quality.
Very good cashews with excellent dip to enhance the flavours. Loved the snack.
Wow these pack a punch. Nice zesty flavour comes first followed by a wonderful unexpected punch of chilli. Wow amazing. You’ve got this flavour down to perfection. 10/10
Excellent tasting cashews
Haven’t tried them before but was not disappointed, loved the cashew nuts and will buy again
Vanilla and Salted Caramel Cashew Nuts with Sugarcane Dip Snackpack Tray
I ordered the Tray of a Kind Bundle as a present for my vegan daughter. The website was easy to use, the delivery was very prompt and the recipient was delighted and said everything was delicious. The site is bookmarked for future gifts!
Whilst I have not had the pleasure of eating Caguu the response from my son and law was delight. I would certainly buy them again probably for myself!
Lovely big cashews and the dips complemented the flavours perfectly.
We received a tin of these delicious cashews in a Christmas hamper and loved them so much we promptly put in an order.
We enjoyed all the flavours and love how fresh the tin keeps them once opened. Just about to order our second batch as although we have a few tins left we don’t want to run out!
My delivery arrived promptly and was fresh. I preferred the savoury ones, but that was the point of buying the bundle, so we could choose our favourites next time.
