Our Story

AchalOrg is our passion project, established in 1996. The project has been growing since then and supports local Indian cashew farmers and encourages sustainable farming practices. We celebrate 25 years in 2021 and we thought it was the perfect time to supply the best quality, certified organic, 100% Indian cashew nuts to cashew lovers from all across India through this platform. By supporting this project, you are making a conscious choice towards sustainability, environmental development, and local farmer community development.

Our Farmers

We know that it is hard for you, as consumers, to know where your food truly comes from. With AchalOrg certified organic cashews you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Our cashews are 100% certified organic and sourced directly from our own network of 6000+ farmers from the regions of Goa and Maharashtra. These farmers are dedicated to our organic cashew project. The freedom of association between Achal and its farmers has always been respected and the dedication by both has never been compromised. This is due to the relationship that Achal has with its farmers, along with the fair price and premium that Achal pays to the farmers directly. Apart from the monetary benefits, Achal continues to provide necessary farm aids, training, and guidance to these farmers from time to time. If you are interested, we can even arrange for you to visit our project sites and meet some of our farmers personally.

Our Process

After direct procurement of certified organic raw cashew nuts from our farmers, the cashews are then processed and packed with the highest standards of quality and hygiene at two of our own cashew manufacturing units located in Mangalore and Turkewadi where we have been manufacturing quality cashew kernels since 1981 and 1983, respectively. Our manufacturing units are certified ISO 22000 by DNV Netherlands, a renowned certifying agency, thus ensuring we have a quality food safety management system (FSMS) in place. From procurement to processing to packing, we do it all ourselves. You now know exactly where your organic cashews come from - directly from the farm to your table - handled completely by veterans who have been in this business for over 40 years.

Our Organic Certifications

To ensure complete traceability and to maintain the highest standards of organic certifications, regular inspections and audits are held at both farm and factory level through IMO Control Private Ltd (IMO India) and we hold organic certifications such as the EU, NPOP, Korea, JAS, and BioSuisse. The AchalOrg project has been exporting since 1996 and since then our organic certified cashews have found their way to Japan, Korea and several countries in Europe like Switzerland and Germany. Our organic certifications are available on request for anyone who wishes to see them, ensuring complete transparency.

Our Social And Community Projects

Our organic project is more than just the business of cashew nuts. Achal is equally proud of its community and environmental projects as it is of producing the best quality Indian cashew nuts. Achal has developed an innate goodwill with the farmers and villages that supply organic raw cashew nuts in a wide spread geography of Goa and Maharashtra. It’s this valued relationship that drives goodwill with the farmers and caters to the genuine nature of any project we develop in these regions. In the rural regions in Mangalore and Maharashtra, Achal has made a difference to every single person associated with it, directly or indirectly by providing employment or opportunities for developing skills in the region.

Environmentally, Achal has been encouraging farmers to grow cashew saplings and has also been distributing a good variety of grafts suitable for the region. This is provided to the farmers of various surrounding villages without any cost, hence making a difference to social, environmental and economic sectors of the society. We also encourage children in local schools at our project areas to learn more about organic food, the environment and the value of sustainable and healthy farming practices.
