Cajú Love’s Upcycled and Plant-Based Cashew Fruit Meat Hits US Grocery Stores and Restaurants


Cajú Love has announced their launch in retail with their 200g organic cashew fruit meat pack and the food service space with their new 800g packs. The company’s sustainable, versatile, and quality whole food plant-based meat alternative is now available at BESTIES Vegan Paradise, Los Angeles; Food Fight! Grocery, Portland; Orchard Grocer, New York, and also on Amazon.

“Customers have been very excited to try Cajú Love. We have had several add it to their weekly shopping list!” said Beth Sullivan, owner of Food Fight! Grocery.

“Cashew fruit meat has the potential to feed a growing population without putting pressure on the environment. Cajú Love has been a pioneer in the upcycled food movement by creating a new plant-based staple from upcycled cashew fruits. We have built a new supply chain system to upcycle cashew apples that helps conserve energy in food production, reduce food waste, soil exploitation, and water usage, and provides an additional income stream for local farmers,” said Alana Lima, founder of Cajú Love.

According to data from the United Nations, about one-third of food produced goes to waste, which totals about 1.3 billion tons annually. It also estimated food waste adds about 3.3 billion tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year, which equates to a roughly $940 billion cost to the global economy. The global Products from Food Waste or upcycled food market size was valued at USD 52.91 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% to reach USD 83.26 billion by 2032. The Upcycled Certified program is estimated to prevent 840 million lbs. of food waste each year.

2.2 million tons of cashew fruits have been going to waste in Brazil alone from the cashew nut industry. About 12% of Brazilian cashew fruits are processed, including juice extraction (8%). Other usages include fresh and dried fruit, jams, wines, candies, and animal feed made out of waste products.

Since launching in 2021, Cajú Love has upcycled over 105,000 cashew apples by turning them into a sustainable and clean plant-based staple. For every 200g pack of organic cashew fruit meat, it upcycles five cashew fruits.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
