  • A bag of GRIA’s Fairtrade Cinnamon Sugar Cashews sits atop a wooden board. To the right of the bag is a wooden bowl displaying those cashews. Alongside it is a shallow bowl with cinnamon sugar.

    GRIA Food Co.

    GRIA Food Co. is a premium snack company whose cashews are Grown in Africa—but also, shelled, peeled, roasted and packed there, too. This means that the communities cultivating Fairtrade cashews also gain access to value-adding steps (and profits!) of the manufacturing process.

    GRIA offers six fantastic flavors, and you really should try them all, but if you’re looking for a special recommendation for that special momma in your life, we humbly suggest the (utterly delicious) cinnamon sugar cashews.
