Companies buy cashew nuts from farmers for drying and packing. Other Ghanaian farmers form a coop, process then sell, or connect to agents who process the nuts. Middlemen play a big role as farmers rarely do processing for lack of capital.

-Farmers/producer -> Processor (Drying and packing) -> Exporter

-Most of the time, companies buy the raw cashew nuts from the farmers and then process/dry themselves because, in order to buy cashew nuts, one needs a company document.

-The second most prominent case is wherein farmers form a coop and process then sell.

-Sometimes, the farmers are connected to agents who process the cashew nuts

-It’s rare that farmers also do the drying and packing themselves alone.

-Middlemen play a big role in the industry because most farmers don't have the capital to process themselves.
