FROM KAILAS CASHEWS

In 1995, Kailas Cashew Exports started in Kollam, the heart of India's Cashew Industry, under the guidance of Mr. P Somarajan. He, a protege of his elder brother renowned in the Cashew sector, embarked on this journey with extensive experience in cashew processing and export.


We began with one factory and worked hard, growing to seven factories in Kollam and Alappuzha. Our state-of-the-art, fully automated cashew processing plant sprawls over 2.5 acres and is equipped with the latest imported machinery.

TO NILA NUTS

Mr. P Somarajan's global exploration of cashews allowed us to import the best cashews, processed and sent worldwide. Today, we're one of the biggest cashew manufacturers, serving over 1000 customers. Our dedication led us to three consecutive years of recognition (2007-2010) as the largest cashew exporter by the Indian Chamber of Commerce.


In 2003, Mrs. Rajitha Somarajan (wife of Mr. P Somarajan) extended our horizons by introducing our roasted cashew products under the brand name “Nila Cashews”.


In 2022, we rebranded as "Nila Nuts," allowing us to offer a diverse range of nut varieties to cater to a wider audience. From humble beginnings in 1995 to a thriving legacy, our story embodies dedication, growth, and a commitment to delivering quality nuts to the world.

MEET OUR FOUNDERS

P. Somarajan, a man with a vision, embarked on a remarkable journey that would later establish him as the founder of Kailas Cashew Exports.
Born and raised in a family deeply rooted in the cashew trade, Somarajan's destiny seemed intertwined with the aromatic nuts that graced the region. However, it was his innate passion and the desire to create something of his own that set him on a unique path.


Somarajan, armed with an indomitable spirit and a wealth of knowledge inherited from generations of cashew traders, decided to carve a niche for himself in the competitive cashew export market. The first seeds of Kailas Cashew Exports were sown, and little did he know that his venture would grow to become a symbol of quality and excellence.


OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Vyshak Somarajan is the dynamic force behind Nila Nuts, bringing a unique blend of education, experience, and entrepreneurial spirit to his role as Executive Director. With a distinguished academic background spanning India and the United States, Vyshak holds honors in Management, a testament to his commitment to excellence.


Joining the group in 2018, Vyshak wasted no time in making his mark on the business landscape. His vision and drive led him to establish Manya Foods, a sister concern, further diversifying the company's portfolio and expanding its reach in the food industry.
