About Karu


KARU Cashews: Born in Brazil and produced in the UK


KARU is a London-based start-up that has its roots in Brazil from where we bring a selection of delicious and nutritious HFSS compliant cashew nut products, ranging from lightly salted to coated in cacao salted caramel.
Our founder is originally from Brazil, and she thought that everyone should be able to enjoy cashews in the same delicious way they are prepared back at home, where people have consumed these nuts for centuries.

KARU’s cashews are consciously sourced, roasted locally in the UK, and packed using recyclable materials. We also give back one percent of our revenue to help preserve tropical forests and their communities.

Award-winning Delicious Cashew Snacks


We produce sweet (KARU Cacao) and savoury (KARU Roasted Salted) cashew snacks that taste great and are better-for-you, with lower or no sugar, low salt, and great macros. All our nuts are roasted and seasoned locally in the UK and are never fried, inspired by the way these nuts are prepared in Brazil, the home of the cashew.

Our KARU Cacao - cocoa salted caramel coated cashews offer a satisfying crunch and chocolaty taste without any chocolate. Their taste and texture have been awarded, winning both in the Great Taste and Nourish Awards in 2022 (91% of consumers preferred KARU against other chocolate-covered nut products in a side-by-side tasting). Our snacks are full of protein, minerals, and vitamins from their natural ingredients. They are processed in BRC facilities, vegan certified, gluten-free, and HFSS compliant (unlike chocolate-coated nuts) with 35% less sugar than vegan chocolate.
