Why we love it

What is a cashew anyway? They grow out of a pear-like fruit on a tree. But nevertheless, these crunchy little curves are true nuts by their definition. And we're really glad to have them. When left plain, they have a creamy, almost rich texture once you've started munching on them. Which also makes them ideal for blending into sauces or nut butters. So while some people may call this unseasoned batch "plain," we don't think that's fair. We prefer "perfect just the way they are."

How it does good

The best for all, inside and out.

Sunshine Nut Co is revolutionizing the nut industry. They're the only African cashew brand to centralize their supply chain—growing, shelling, and packaging locally. Most brands grow nuts in Africa, but roast and package them elsewhere. The Sunshine Nut Co approach minimizes their carbon footprint while boosting the economy of Mozambique. They've also created the Sunshine Approach Foundation, which works with the local government to create jobs, fund shelters, and provide education and childcare.

  • responsible sourcing

    Sunshine Nut Co is the only cashew company to grow, harvest, and package their products locally in Mozambique. They ensure that farmers and shellers earn fair wages in a safe working environment.
  • supporting key causes

    "Sunshine Nut Co creates ethical, local employment for local Mozambiquans. They've created jobs for over 1,000 shellers and purchase their harvests at a fair price from 50,000 cashew farmers. As if that wasn't enough, they also fund charities across housing, education, and childcare throughout Mozambique. "
  • low carbon footprint

    Typically cashews are harvested in Africa, then routed for processing in India or Vietman before being sent to the USA to be sold. That's a huge carbon footprint. By creating a local supply chain within Mozambique, Sunshine Nut reduced their emissions drastically all while supporting the local community.
  • Certified B Corp

How to use it

Enjoy them solo, cover them in chocolate, or chop them up and make a homemade cashew chicken. Plain does not mean boring.
