As well as delivering the highest quality cashew snacks to you, we feel its our mission to showcase the hardwork of the people behind Cajuu, to put planet over profit, and to pay tribute to our heritage and provenance
Completely Cashew, Completely Conscientious
From our farming partners in Tanzania to the individuals in the UK, there are some absolutely incredible men and women that make Cajuu what it is
Our grandfather started a tailoring shop in the 1970's in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) - which continues to this day. He started to offer cashew nuts as snacks to his customers while they were getting their outfit measured.
Relationships with small scale cashew farmers grew and people started to associate the shop not only for tailoring but also for the amazing quality and size of the cashew nuts - and so the Cajuu journey began!
Since the 1970’s we have built successful partnerships with hundreds of small scale farmers across southern Tanzania. It is these strong bonds and connections which is key to us being able to source sustainable and quality products. We know our Tanzanian cashew farming partners personally, meaning not only do we all collectively work hard to achieve repeatedly good harvests, but also provide the farmers with as much recognition as possible. We enable them to take ownership of their farming, as they are the true heroes of this story. We provide hand tools as well as equipment to our farming partners that protect against corrosive CNSL in the shell of the cashew which can burn the skin.
This simple yet vital supply of safety equipment has made their lives better and healthier, and also enables them to deshell more cashews which in turn allows them to earn more for themselves and their families. Furthermore, we only offer a fair, transparent price with no quotas or production demands for all orders.
Single Origin and Traceability
We exclusively and directly source our cashews from the Makonde Plateau in southern Tanzania, a region which due to its environment, soil conditions and climate make for amazing quality produce - including cashew nuts! We have full visibility of the supply chain, and are able to trace each cashew nut batch not only back to the farm but also the farmers who grow, harvest and process them (see our Meet Your Farmer section).
We care deeply about our planet and everything we do from Tanzania to the UK and beyond across our supply chain ensures that we're doing the best by it
Lower Carbon Footprint
Africa exports 90% of its shelled cashews to Asia for deshelling which has a huge impact on global emissions. This is where we differ, as we deshell in Tanzania, then ship freight these cashew nuts directly to the UK. This significantly reduces our 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. 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.
Going Carbon Negative
Our quest as a business is to continue to look at ways to reduce and even negate our carbon footprint. We are working with 3rd party organisations to survey the land in southern Tanzania, and work with our farming partners to plant cashew trees in the best possible places to ensure they grow to their full potential.
Natural, Vegan & 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 also have an African direction to them to harp back to Cajuu's roots. Additionally, our packaging is 100% plastic free helping to reduce our plastic pollution. We encourage you to reuse our packaging where possible (see the Create section of our website for tips and tricks) or to dispose of the packaging correctly.
Our roots are from Tanzania and we infuse the heritage and provenance throughout the Cajuu brand, from the identity to the product range we bring to you

Cashew Quality and Size
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

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.
