VIT’s competitive edge lies in the supply chain management of Raw Cashew Nuts (RCN). We procure them from remote bushes and bring them to process houses. With excellent origination capabilities, we have built a strong presence in Africa and Asia and are one of the largest traders in West Africa, a major origin of RCN. We also trade processed cashew nuts from India and Vietnam.

The key to our competitiveness and success is the presence of specialized traders and highly qualified quality control inspectors that ensure strict quality and logistic controls at origins. To achieve this, we have invested heavily in world class drying facilities and warehousing logistics in various parts of West Arica. This allows our cargo to be well dried thus mitigating the quality risk that arises from moisture and maintains the consistency of quality in each and every shipment. Hence, allowing us to fulfill our commitment of timely shipment of quality cargo to all our customers.

VIT continues to strive to be the best cashew trader by continually expanding its origins, increasing its investments and is currently pursuing forward and backward integration by creating processing facilities at origins.

Cassava is the third largest source of food carbohydrates in the tropics, after rice and maize. Cassava is a major staple food in the developing world, providing a basic diet for over half a billion people. It is one of the most drought-tolerant crops, capable of growing on marginal soils. Nigeria is the world's largest producer of cassava.

Cassava tubers cannot be stored for long in the fresh form because they are highly perishable. Thus, it is necessary to develop other means of utilizing the surpluses. Drying of cassava naturally in the sun or artificially in ovens is practiced to improve the shelf life of the tuber and reduce post-harvest losses. The roots, after peeling and washing, are chipped into smaller sizes for faster drying.

Cassava chips are mostly used in the production of starch and animal feeds. In recent times, it is being used to create biofuel.

Our chips are white or near white in colour, free from extraneous matter, molds, insect infestation and damage, and possess no peculiar odours. In addition, shipments of our chips do not contain significant amounts of dust, as this is considered unacceptable by our discerning buyers/importers.
