According to FAOSTAT, cashew nut is currently the third most consumed form of nut or peanut worldwide.

Last year, 25 thousand tons were harvested by Aussie producers. Australian government has provided support in developing hybrid cashew trees more adapted to local climate conditions. And there are several researches to optimize production processes of cashew nuts, currently accounting for 60% of total costs.
