The Sustainable Nut Initiative (SNI) is a cooperation platform for the nut sector. All links of the supply chain are represented. Our aim is to bring the nut sector to a higher level in terms of professionality, sustainability and quality.

We work in complex supply chains with continuous changing market dynamics and limited transparency. The different nuts, such as macadamia, almond, groundnut and cashew, come with their own unique production characteristics and sustainability challenges. SNI develops tools and strategies that take the specific characteristics and sustainability challenges of the different nuts into account.

SNI’s starting point is to enhance transparency along the entire chain, stimulate the use of data to make smart interventions and strengtening farm-firm relations.
Our motto: securing sustainable supply

The initial focus of SNI has been on cashew. Other nut categories will follow soon.

Contact SNI for more info on solutions and membership.
