Kete-Krachi Farms Ltd is revolutionizing mechanized cashew farming in Ghana, by combining modern technologies, guaranteed high yielding planting material and irrigation, to sustain high-density planting. Their vision is to effectively and sustainably grow cashews with the highest yield per hectare subsequently processed for export. This is done through continuous learning and training of staff, using the latest technologies to improve yield in the field and processing at the factory. Kete Krachi Farms was incorporated in 2016 after five (5) years of research that highlighted the most profitable and sustainable ways to grow cashews, through large commercially mechanized farms and as well as processing for export. It is worth noting that in 2017/18, Ghana exported about one billion dollars ($1B USD) of raw cashew nuts. The 500-hectare farm is located in the Krachi West District, in the Oti Region of Ghana approximately 9 kilometers and also to the west of the Volta River.
