Japanese firm fast-tracking plans for cashew nut processing facilities in Cambodia Top Planning Japan Co Ltd (TPJ) is fast-tracking plans to build new cashew nut processing facilities in Kampong Thom and Kampong Cham provinces in Cambodia. The goal is to meet 30% of the estimated annual demand for cashew nuts in Japan by the end of the decade. TPJ has exported locally-processed cashew nuts to Japan since 2019 and exceeded 100 tonnes in 2022. The company plans to increase this figure to 3,000 tonnes per annum over the next five years. Each factory will have the capacity to process about 20,000 tonnes of raw cashew nuts each year. This would translate into an annual production capacity of at least 5,000 tonnes of processed cashew nuts. Cashew nut Association of Cambodia (CAC) president Uon Silot is optimistic that TPJ will invest and build the cashew nut processing installation soon. (Source: Phnom Penh Post)
