Marking the World Cashew Day, leading Gulf-based carrier Emirates treated its fliers with tasty and munchy Indian cashews on board its passenger jets, an official said. “We have served the delicious and roasted India cashew nuts to our guests on international and regional flights as a snack and an ingredient in a variety of our cuisine,” said the Dubai-based airline in a statement.

The reach of Indian cashews now extends way beyond the country’s shores, to over 150 destinations across 85 countries and territories, thanks to Emirates, which is giving wing to the Indian dry fruit.

Emirates said India, a cashew production heavyweight, is a perfect match to the airline as the produce piggybacks on its fleet to 160 destinations in 86 countries. According to the airline, United Arab Emirates (UAE), imports 21 per cent of India’s total annual cashew kernel exports of 80,000 tonnes, valued at $900 million, emerging the largest importer.

Emirates extensively peppers the curved nut produced by an evergreen tree in its menu, serving and garnishing in its signature delicacies such as butter chicken, khanu badam diya macher, pongal, shahi paneer, murg korma and others.

Emirates sources cashews from southern Indian state Tamil Nadu to toss its Indian masala cashews snack, for its first and business class passengers.

In 2017-18, the UAE accounted for 21 per cent of India’s total cashew exports and became the largest importer of the nut, says a press release from Emirates. Annually, Emirates serves around 33 tonnes of masala cashews around its global network, and 125 tonnes of mixed nuts, of which cashew is a key ingredient, besides almonds, pistachios and macadamia.

This year, SkyCargo, the cargo division of Emirates, transported over 50,000 kg of cashews from Kochi to Los Angeles between April and October. Indian cashews on Emirates’ global services to 159 destinations have piqued interest, created awareness and more opportunities for Indian farmers and industry, the release said.

Celebrating the economic potential of Indian cashew produce, Emirates said the presence of the Indian produce on its fleet stimulated interest and awareness for further business opportunities to Indian cashew farmers, recognising cashew’s role in connecting communities and fostering trade.
