     A former Portuguese colony, this country is a rapidly growing center for agricultural industrial development, international trade, and tourism. Guinea-Bissau is the second largest producer of cashew in Africa, with cashews making up 90% of its exports and 60% of state GDP. Guinea-Bissau was the host of the first ever ACA World Cashew Festival & Expo and is proud to again host this international event.

    The 10th anniversary conference, themed “A Decade of Transformation” will feature a dynamic program of speakers and panelists to reflect on the past 10 years of progress and to strategize for the future of the industry. It will also host a variety of equipment and product vendors from around the world for a three-day expo and offer the opportunity to network during business-to-business meetings. The final day will be reserved for field trips, where participants will have the opportunity to visit a cashew processing facility and farm or tour the various cultural sites around Bissau.

    To celebrate the 10th year of the ACA Conference, this year’s program will also feature an Awards Ceremony where we will recognize founding ACA members, industry stars and other stakeholders for their significant contributions to the development of the African cashew industry.

    Do not miss this opportunity to register for the ACA World Cashew Festival & Expo 2016!
