Sunshine Nut Co.

Team

Don Larson

Founder & CEO

Favorite Cashew: That is a very difficult question for me as I developed all the flavors. Each is amazing. The buttery herb flavor satisfies like a meal. The spiced gets my body into high gear. The salted just makes me want to finish the bag and open another one. The plain makes me appreciate just how amazing the taste of a cashew can be if done properly.

Favorite Place in Mozambique: At Sunshine Nut Company. For the first time in my life, my work is not a job, it is life. I have found my purpose. I have found satisfaction. I have found abundance.

I love Sunshine Nut Co. because…I am able to tangibly improve a person’s life. Those changes are happening with orphans in the communities, with workers at the factory, and even with people I talk with around the world. Our business is a catalyst for change on many levels. That is the most rewarding thing. To see our efforts improve a person’s life for the better.

I love Sunshine Nut Co. because…I get the privilege of being a part of the lives of people in Mozambique. It is very rewarding to provide hope and opportunity to them through the programs we implement, and sometimes through just a hug, balloon, or piece of candy.
