Cashew: Togo eyes an output of 24,000 tons in 2019

(Togo First) - Togo eyes a cashew output of 24,000 tons this year and 30,000 tons in the next four years. This target falls under a program-agreement signed between the government and the sector’s actors.

This program aims at creating more than 200,000 jobs during the period.

The related agreement was signed in the framework of the third cashew sales campaign, launched by the minister of agriculture last Friday in Dapaong, in the Savanes region.

On this occasion, actors of the cashew industry discussed measures to take to advance the sector. Among the topics covered are the role of the mechanism promoting agricultural financing (MIFA) as well as a stricter management of sales.

In 2018, Togo exported 15,000 tons of cashew, the country’s fourth agricultural export, after cotton, coffee and cocoa.
