The Cashew business in Kollam is based in the eponymous city, which is known as the Cashew Capital of the World.Kollam is the largest processed cashew exporter in the world. As of 2011 there were more than 600 cashew processing units in the city. About 800,000 tonnes of raw cashews are imported to the city for processing every year. 80% of India's export quality cashew kernels were prepared in Kollam. Kollam remained as the cashew capital of the world for decades since 1930s.

However high cost of production existing in Kollam due to limited mechanisation and higher minimum wages, stiff competition on cost front from East Africa and Southeast Asia in international perspective and Tamil Nadu and East India in domestic perspective are putting a lot of pressure over cashew processing sector of Kollam in recent times.

Cashews were first brought to India by the Portuguese from the native Tupi territory (a Neotropic Divergent Evolutive Zone) in North Eastern Brazil. Portuguese planted them along the coasts of Goa to prevent erosion. Cashew came to Kerala in 1505, when Kolathiri king gave permission to Portuguese to build a fort in Kannur. The Portuguese who are called Paranki in Malayalam planted cashew trees around the fort and hence cashew trees are also called Parankimaavu in Malayalam and cashew nuts are called Parankiyandi. By the late 16th century Cashew trees started to spread across Kannur and also to other parts of Kerala with laterite soil such as Kollam with considerable Portuguese influence and Kasaragode. During the time of the Portuguese, Dutch and British in the Indian subcontinent, Quilon and its old port were major business hubs for Arabian and Chinese traders. The trees that was brought from Brazil adapted very well to their new home and in due course of time India became the main centre of cultivation of cashew became along with other nations in Asia and Africa.
