Top 3 Asian Sourcing Markets Competing China

China has always remained the preferred sourcing market for the majority of U.S. businesses. The two countries have a strong economic dependency on each other. However, over the last couple of years, the trade relations between the two countries have experienced uncertainty and experts believe that the situation is likely to get more unpleasant in the years to come. Many of the leading U.S. business firms are facing difficult situations as the United States government has considerably increased tariffs on Chinese goods.

At BlinkGlobal, we help our clients find the most competitive consumer bases around the world. In this article, we are listing down the top 3 rising sourcing markets in Asia that you can consider as an alternative to China.

  1.   India

Indian products have gained popularity not only in the United States but are being admired across the world. The two countries also enjoy a cordial relationship. The economic ties between the two countries are great as evident by the fact that the US has remained India’s top trading partner for the second consecutive fiscal in 2019-20.

What truly makes India a competitive sourcing choice is a technical mindset and strong engineering capabilities of its suppliers. Indian engineers have a strong reputation for innovation. The overall workforce is skilled and is greatly contributing to higher quality production runs. India has also emerged as the largest producer of organic cotton and has over 1,254 Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified facilities.

  1.   Vietnam

Vietnamese exports to the United States and Europe are booming. With a literacy rate of 95%, the Southeast Asian country has emerged as one of the leading and fastest-growing economies of the world. The country has skilled labor and engineers that produce the finest quality products parallel to none. The business relations between the United States and Vietnam are stronger than ever. United States is the leading trade partner of Vietnam with a trading volume totaling up to 41,550 (US$ Mil).

China has for long monopolized the electronic industry but over the last couple of years, Vietnam’s electronics industry has proved to be a competitive alternative choice. The industry is dominated by multinational businesses which have significantly boosted and Vietnam’s trade volume and contributed to its GDP.

  1.   Malaysia

Malaysia is now the third-largest economy in South East Asia. The Country is a popular travel destination among U.S. tourists. Over the last couple of years, the country has increased its production capabilities and is now the leading supplier of electrical equipment, medical apparatus, rubber articles, plastic articles, iron, steel, aluminum, and more.

The country has also been keen to invest in its workforce and now stands sixth globally on the World Economic Forum’s ranking of workforce skills. The country’s geography also plays to its advantage and is home to the second and third busiest ports in South Asia.

BlinkGlobal Leading The Cashew Market From The Front

Globally Sourcing Cashews in Bulk from Africa for Finishers & Wholesalers | BlinkGlobal

“We make it look so easy – because we make it easy for you” The Covid-19 Pandemic has shifted the global sourcing trends and changed the whole supply & demand balance. Various immune-boosting food products have seen a major surge in demand. People across the globe are looking for healthy alternatives to reduce their chances of getting infected by boosting their immune system. Herbs, spices, nuts, seeds, probiotics, and food supplements are on top of the food chain now. Due to the sudden increase in demand, it’s getting harder every day to get access to good quality immune boosting products creating a bottleneck.

Immune-Boosting Cashews

Like most nuts, Cashew kernels are delicious for snacking on and are rich in protein, dietary fibre, antioxidants, and monounsaturated fat. Cashews require a frost-free tropical climate to grow. This limits the plantation in the US to the extreme South; allowing only Florida, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico to harvest cashews. This puts all the demand pressure on US imports.

One-Stop-Shop Sourcing Solutions

BlinkGlobal is an international sourcing company that strictly adheres to FDA regulations. We specialize in dry fruits and nuts sourcing. Although cashew imports can be a sticky process with lots of government requirements and regulations. However, BlinkGlobal streamlines the process for the peace of mind of wholesalers. We keep tabs on the global trends and always source the best products available in the market. 

Only The Best Cashews

The best quality cashew kernels are harvested in Vietnam, India, and African countries like Nigeria. BlinkGlobal has local onsite agents who procure cashews directly from growers after physical inspection and quality assurance. This allows us to remove the middlemen involved, and get the best quality at highly affordable rates.

Hassle-Free Freight-On-Board Services

What makes BlinkGlobal different from other herds of suppliers is that on top of our affordable rates, we also offer Freight-On-Board services. This means that the wholesalers or finishers don’t have to worry about all the risks of shipping regulations and hurdles associated with it. Any loss or delay in shipment remains BlinkGlobal’s problem until it is delivered to your doorstep.

Our large infrastructure and shipping network allows us to make international sourcing look so easy. We have access to international shipping companies and storage hangers all across the major ports. We optimize the processing time and work our way through the shipping chain to deliver your products as soon as possible.

Raw Cashews & Salted Cashews

BlinkGlobal can source raw cashews as well as the finished products. For salted cashews, our shipments can make a pitstop at our finishers in India & Vietnam to roast and salt the cashews. The finished product is then safely shipped again your way. Almost 60% of our finishers are located in Vietnam.


Cashew harvesters do not have to worry about any hassle related to how they are going to sell their raw products. BlinkGlobal’s sourcing model allows us to get directly in touch with harvesters and source their good quality cashew kernels with direct cash payments.


Cashew kernel finishers usually do not have a big infrastructure that allows them to buy, finish, and sell the kernels all alone. BlinkGlobal provides support at every level. We source the raw cashew kernels and get them delivered to finishers so they don’t have to worry about sourcing nuts.


BlinkGlobal has access to global cashew harvesters and finishers that makes the wholesalers’ job easier. We can provide direct access to bulk quantity cashew nuts. We source internationally and deliver door-to-door to retailers, wholesalers, and distributors. Let’s Get Started!
