Former Hershey exec, Don Larson says, “Find an idea that you’re willing to die for…and then start to really live.” After selling his possessions and moving to Mozambique to open a cashew company with a strong social mission, Don almost lost his life. That event and a deep sense that God has called him to this work has galvanized him to be even more resolute in building a company that helps transform the lives of his workers and those in his community.
The solution to many of the world’s problems is jobs. The Sunshine Nut Co. was founded on the belief that a value driven business – where dignity, love, and community come together with excellence could provide lasting social, economic and even spiritual change in some of the poorest countries around the world. Don is convinced there are many Christian businessmen just waiting to be challenged by their church to become what he calls “Economic Missionary Warriors.”
