The day starts with a trip to a coir factory. Here, one would get an insight into how coir is made traditionally using coconut bark and other related material. A couple of hours spent here helps in understanding the old methods used in coir manufacture.

This is followed by a visit to the cashew factory. Here, cashew plucking, sorting, dehusking and packaging of cashews would be on display. One can get to see the processing of cashews from raw form to finished products. Needless to say, one can buy fresh cashews from their sales counters.

Lunch would be followed by a trip to a cashew feni factory. Here, the ancient process of converting cashew fruit to the cashew feni is on display. The traditional method of extracting feni from the cashew fruit is explained in detail.

The group would be dropped back to the pickup after this.
