Before the war Afghanistan was world famous for its unique and high-quality nuts and almonds. Today they are rarely sold in Europe. We wish to establish the Afghan brand again and get the unique products back on the market.
Therefore, we have several very special and tasty products on the way: Chilgoza pine nuts, Shakhurbai almonds, both with soft-shells and without, sweet apricot kernels. More will come.
The nuts and almonds are grown in the dry mountain areas in Afghanistan – on the edge of the Himalayas. The dry and high-altitude mountains, poor in nutrients give the nuts and almonds their unique and strong taste.
They are mostly grown by small-scale farmers, who carefully harvest, clean, and sort the nuts completely manually. This gives income and jobs to farmers and communities. This is highly needed in Afghanistan.
Hope you will enjoy them!
