The geographical indication for Binh Phuoc cashew includes material areas and raw cashew, cashew nuts, and salted cashew nuts.

The southern province of Binh Phuoc’s cashew has been well-known on both domestic and international markets thanks to its special taste and high nutrition values, including over 43 percent of protein and 23 percent of carbohydrate.

According to Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Nguyen Van Loi, cashew cultivation have helped reduced poverty and improved income of locals in many localities of the province, including remote, mountainous and border areas.

Receiving GIs will help build trademark of the product and promote exports.

Binh Phuoc is home to over 200 cashew enterprises and processing facilities with total output of 82,000 tonnes per year, employing about 50,000 labourers. 

The product has been available in 25 countries and territories.
