Our Cashew Story

About Us

Our story begins in 1999, when our founder, Dr Ruwan Wathugala established Royal Cashew in Kirindiwita, Gampaha, Sri Lanka, where our manufacturing facility still remains today. Since then, Royal Cashew has grown into a group of three private limited liability companies – Green Way Asia Lanka, Trust Lanka Suppliers and Royal Food Marketing – and now operates two manufacturing facilities.

Since then, our founder’s passion for cashew has guided and transformed Royal Cashew into Sri Lanka’s largest, most sustainable and ethical processor and exporter of cashew nuts and cashew nut products. Presently, Royal Cashew is enjoyed by cashew lovers in over 15 countries including the USA, UK, Australia, Malaysia, Japan, New Zealand and Switzerland.

Handpicked Moments That Matter

Each delicious cashew nut in our products is handpicked by over 10,000 local community farmers, who practice sustainable farming. Ethical sourcing is part of our core ethos at Royal Cashew as we believe that each member of our value chains should be treated fairly and benefit equally. All our cashew nuts and cashew nut products are of 100% Sri Lankan origin and we use only natural ingredients, traditional techniques and modern technology to process and prepare these handpicked delights, for life’s moments that matter.

Our Cashew Story

Our commitment and dedication to quality, sustainability and ethical sourcing are attested to by the numerous awards and accolades that we have received, along with the various globally recognized certifications we have qualified to obtain. These include sustainability and environmental safety certifications such as ISO 14001 EMS and food safety management standards such as ISO 22000 FSMS, HACCP & GMP certification.

Believing in collaboration towards the mutual benefit, our ethical and sustainable principles extend to the partnerships we have forged with national and private organizations to promote Sri Lankan cashew and food products, locally and worldwide. We are constantly working together with institutions such as the Sri Lanka Cashew Corporation, Export Development Board, National Chamber of Commerce, National Chamber of Exporters, Industrial Development Board, Ministry of Primary Industries, the Food Processors Association, Packaging Institute, Packaging Development Centre and the Institute of Food Science and Technology of Sri Lanka, of which we are a founding member, to continually push for ethical, sustainable sourcing, the highest quality standards and maximum visibility for Sri Lankan cashew in the local and global marketplace.
