Sucden CI was established in Abidjan in July 2011, and is a licensed cocoa exporter.

Our local team handles the purchasing of cocoa beans from local coops and traitants, and ensures a full control of quality through to export. Sucden already has a processing factory in Abidjan.


During the 2012/2013 season, Sucden Côte d'Ivoire opened a conditioning factory in San Pedro, which allowed the group to double its exporting capacity.

Through its local subsidiary, Sucres et Denrées intends to play a key role in supporting the Ivorian cocoa sector throughout the reform process.
