CASHEW NUT EXPORT/IMPORT BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

Cashew Nut export business is a seasonal money spinning business in the first quarter of the year. If you remove the first four words in CASHEW it reads CASH. So,Prepare ahead to make some CASH exporting CASHEW NUTS. Now, let me give you some information on Cashew Nuts. 

Description
Cashew (Anacardium Occidentale L.) is a tree crop of considerable economic importance to Nigeria and other tropical countries. Apart from being a source of useful products and byproducts for food, medicinal and industrial applications, cashew gives also a useful shade, while ornamental and alley trees are suitable for the control of soil erosion, particularly for the protection of watersheds and dams.

Harvest
Cashew nut setting begins in the middle of dry season, while harvesting takes place mainly in February or March. The entire harvest period occupies about 16 weeks. In the Eastern and Western parts of the country, where quality cashew nuts are grown, nuts are allowed to drop to the ground before they are collected. This practice ensures that only ripe nuts are collected. Nuts normally fall to the ground with their apples attached; the two are normally separated with a twisting action during collection. The remnants of the apple flash adhering to the nuts are removed with a sharp knife. After picking, the nuts are dried in the sun for 2 to 3 days, to reduce their moisture content to about 12 %. Properly dried nuts are packed in jute bags and can be kept for 6 to 10 months, if stored in suitable condition.

Locations
Major cashew growing areas in Nigeria are, by order of importance: Enugu, Abia, Imo, Anambra, Ebonyi and Cross River States in the eastern part of the country; Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti and Ogun States in the Western part, as well as Kwara, Kogi, Nassarawa, Benue, Taraba, Niger and FCT in the Middle Belt and also Sokoto and Kebbi States in the North West part of the country. The majority of export quality nuts come from the Western and Eastern parts of the country.

Specification
According to SGS (quality inspectors), the standard for raw cashew nuts, unshelled, is specified as follows:
i. Nut count 180-200 per kg
ii. Moisture content 8-10% max
iii. Defective nuts 15% max
iv. Float Rate 18% max
v. Admixture 0.25% max
vi. Foreign matter 0.25% max
vii. KoR, or shelling out-turn 48-50 Ibs/bag

Uses
The cashew nut is a popular snack, and its rich flavor means that it is often eaten on its own, lightly salted or sugared. In addition to this, cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL), a by-product of processing cashew, is mostly composed of anacardic acids. These acids have been used effectively against tooth abscesses due to their lethality to bacteria.

Export market
The major buyers of cashew nut from Nigeria are mainly India and Singapore. Smaller percentage goes to Europe.

Shocking! FIRST BANK NIGERIA LIMITED TO CUT ABOUT 1000 JOBS

Read this story culled from tori.ng
 
"First Bank Nigeria Limited has officially announced its plan to cut about 1000 jobs and focus less on providing loans to the oil industry in a bid to reverse the 2015 financial year's 82 per cent slump in profit.
First Bank building
 
Speaking to Bloomberg in Lagos, Adesola Adeduntan, the chief executive officer of First Bank of Nigeria, has said that one thousand (1,000) staff of the bank will lose their jobs as the bank expects to boost its return on equity (ROE) – a key measure of profitability, to between 11 percent and 14 percent in 2016 from from last year’s 'really bad' figure of three per cent.
 
Below is how Bloomberg exclusively reported the story;
 
FBN Holdings Plc, which owns Nigeria’s biggest bank, plans to cut jobs and focus less on providing loans to the oil industry in a bid to reverse last year’s 82 percent slump in profit.
 
The lender expects to boost its return on equity, a key measure of profitability, to between 11 percent and 14 percent in 2016 from last year’s “really bad” figure of 3 percent, according to Adesola Adeduntan, chief executive officer of FBN’s main First Bank of Nigeria unit. It is also targeting a cost-to-income ratio of 55 percent in two years time from 59 percent, he said.
 
“ROE will be much better than last year,” Adeduntan said by phone from Lagos on Wednesday. “At a minimum, we should triple it. We do not shy away from taking difficult decisions. We used to have above 8,000 people. We’ll push it down, gradually, to 7,000.”
 
Net profit fell to 15 billion naira ($76 million) from 84 billion naira in 2014, as impairments soared and Africa’s biggest economy slowed amid a crash in the price of crude, the biggest source of government revenue and export earnings. Growth decelerated to 2.8 percent in 2015, the lowest level since 1999, and may worsen to 2.3 percent this year, according to the International Monetary Fund.
 
First Bank’s non-performing loans ratio stood at 22 percent at the end of March, compared with 3.8 percent a year earlier. Reducing that figure is the “number one priority,” said Adeduntan. The bank will do that by reducing the proportion of its lending to the oil and gas sector, currently at about 39 percent of total loans, and focusing more on blue-chip companies in other industries, he said.
Enough Cash
 
Adeduntan ruled out any equity raising this year, saying the bank’s capital adequacy ratio of 17.2 percent was enough of a buffer and above the central bank’s minimum requirement of 15 percent. It would still be adequate if the floor is raised to 16 percent in July for systemically important institutions, including First Bank.
 
“We continuously evaluate it and the position now is that there’s no need for external capital,” said Adeduntan, 46, who became CEO in January after joining First Bank as chief financial officer in mid-2014. “We generate enough internal capital,” he said.
 
FBN’s shares rose 5.3 percent to 3.57 naira on Wednesday. They’re still down 30 percent this year, more than the Nigerian Stock Exchange All Share Index’s drop of 13 percent.
 
The bank’s valuation lags that of its main competitors such as Guaranty Trust Bank Plc and Zenith Bank Plc. Its stock trades at 0.22 times book value, or the theoretical price that shareholders would get if all assets were sold and liabilities paid-off. That compares with 1.18 times for GTBank and 0.62 for Zenith.

The market has over-corrected,” Adeduntan said. “It’s priced in all the negative information. For us, it can only go up."
 
The story above is a clear reason why those who are working in corporate organizations should take having a PLAN B seriously and consider Non-Oil Commodity Export Business as an interesting business to use as a PLAN B.

VALUE ADDED EXPORTING

Non-Oil Commodity Export market has become more interesting of recent due to the recent economic situation of Nigeria which the fall in oil prices caused. Therefore, non-oil commodity export is seriously under consideration as an alternative to salvage the falling economy.Value Added Exporting in simple term, means adding value to the commodities you are exporting. No matter the amount you are making right now as profit in your export business you can make more of it if you add value to the commodities you are exporting. Majority of the commodities exported from Africa especially Nigeria are exported in the raw form, which industries in the other continents like Europe, Asia, America e.t.c will add value to it and sell it at a higher price and the funniest case is that they sell some of this product back to us at a higher cost after adding value to it.

Take for example, our very own shea butter which is exported abroad from Nigeria, some cosmetics manufacturing companies will add value to it, produce a cream and brand it with a beautiful name which is sold back to us and some of our people buy these creams at exorbitant prices. This same scenario applies to some other Nigeria’s exportable commodity.It is important as an exporter or a prospective exporter to work in a new direction of adding value to the commodities you specialized in exporting. Advantages of adding value to your exportable commodities are: 
1.       Increase in your ROI (Return on Investment)

2.       International Exposure for your brand

3.       Ability to sell  value added products in the local market

Examples of commodities that exporters can add value to are:

1.       Shea Nut and Butter: Shea Nut can be reprocessed into Raw Shea Butter Grade A, while Raw Shea Butter can be reprocessed into Refined Shea Butter. Raw Shea Butter export will give you more profit while Refined She Butter will give you higher profit.

2.       Cashew Nut: It can be processed into kernels for higher profit margin.

3.       Hardwood Charcoal: it can grinded to produce charcoal powder and packaged for export

4.       Sesame Seed: To improve it, it can be cleaned and dehulled

5.       Cassava: Value can be added to Cassava by packing and exporting it’s finished products like Garri, Fufu Powder, Tapioca e.t.c. It can be branded and packaged for export.

We will be discussing fully on value added exporting in a special series of articles, we will be releasing soon. The most important aspect in the exporting business is to simply do it right. To do it the right way, you will need the service of a consultant to put you on the right path and lead you to success.

If you are seriously interested in starting a Non-Oil Commodity export Business or you are interested in making more profit margins by adding value to the commodity of your interest, subscribe to our Non-Oil Commodity Export Business Consulting Service and we will definitely be of great help to your success in the business by the special grace of God.
