Nut factory cracks export market as well as community development

Award-winning journalist, Nikiwe Bikitsha, visited Sunshine Nut Cashews Company while exploring the business and investment opportunities in Mozambique.

The company, which was founded in 2011, has struck a balance between developing the local community and breaking into international markets for business success.

Cashew nuts remain one of Mozambique's biggest export items, sold across various markets globally.

Speaking to Prescila Canotilho while on a tour of the factory, she also discovered that the company reinvests up to 90% of its proceeds towards transformation initiatives.
