  • Dekel Agri-Vision cashew operation on track in terms of production capacity 10/10/2022

    Oct 10th, 2022

    Further to the Company’s announcement of 12 September 2022, the production capacity of the Cashew Operation has materially increased and in October should reach 75% of the level required to process 10,000tn pa. · The colour sorter and shelling machines mentioned in the Company’s previous monthly operational updates are operating well following the completion of their delivery and commissioning. With the resultant material increase in throughput, the Company is now integrating the last two peeling machines which, when fully operational in the next few weeks, will complete the operational value chain. · As processing patterns continue to stabilise, we will begin sharing key statistical operational and production data as appropriate. Lincoln Moore, Dekel Agri-Vision‘s Executive Director, said: “The Cashew Operation is now on track in terms of production capacity to reach the Company’s goal of processing 10,000 tonnes of RCN in 2023. Whilst CPO volumes remain below the record H2 2021 results, CPO volumes are showing signs of improvement and CPO extraction rates are relatively strong. CPO and PKO prices achieved remained close to all-time highs which is important as we edge closer to the next high season in early 2023.”
