Vietnam - Organic Cashew, Tapioca & Fruits

Tradin Organic has been working in Vietnam since 2001. The country’s varied regions and diverse climate conditions offer ideal growing conditions for our organic products. With our local partners, we have set up projects for organic cashew nuts, organic tapioca starch, organic pineapple and many other tropical fruits. Our work in Vietnam is continuously growing and we are always looking to add new and exciting products. 

Organic Cashew – A New Way of working

Organic Cashew – A New Way of working

After the Vietnamese government moved away from collective farming in the late 1990’s, Tradin Organic partnered with a large cashew farmers' collective. By investing in technical support and finance, Tradin Organic helped the collective to transition to organic farming and obtain organic certification, and since then, the partnership has evolved into a successful organic cashew project. Our agronomists continue to work with the organic farmers to improve the yield and quality of their crops and we maintain our technical support to the local processing facility to help guarantee quality, food safety and organic integrity. 

Organic Pineapple – Better for the Environment

In addition to organic cashew nuts, Tradin Organic also sources organic pineapple products from Southern Vietnam. Conventional (non-organic) pineapple cultivation usually relies on the intense application of synthetic pesticides which is often associated with soil and water contamination. Since our organic farmers are prohibitied from using synthetic inputs, the impact on the environment is reduced to a minimum. After harvest, the organic pineapples are processed locally into different products, such as organic pineapple slices IQF, organic pineapple rings or chunks (canned), organic pineapple juice, etc. 

Looking Forward – More Products More Impact

Looking Forward – More Products More Impact

Our sourcing project is creating a positive impact on local farmers and workers in Vietnam. In addition to our organic certification, our cashew project possesses a social certification which helps to ensure the fair treatment of workers at the cashew processing facility. We are also supporting a health care program which provides health care insurance to over 120 farmers and their families. Looking forward, we aim to continue to have a positive impact on the lives of our farmers and continue to add new products to our portfolio, such as organic ginger, organic jackfruit and organic dragon fruit.
