Information for new buyers

To ovoid any misunderstanding please read very carefully the following information

- The cocoa beans are sold only by batches from several to thousands metric tons.

- There are all year long batches for sale, depending:
1.  The level of activity of factories which get the cocoa fevers in the bush, remove dirt, sort, dry (very important) and pack fevers.
There are dozens of these factories from Abidjan to San Pedro (400 km)
2. Needs of the market

The buyer or his representative has to:
. check himself the batch in authorized exporter warehouse
. check documents and quality certificates
. manage his own analysis before any purchasing because all batches are different for quality (grade, moisture, mold, broken...) even after processing of raw cocoa fevers

Then the buyer have to do a proposal, most of time London fixing price, depending quality and quantity. Some batches can be more expansive because highest quality in some areas from Ivory Coast.

If there is an agreement with the seller the buyer has to confirm and reserve the batch with an immediate bank guaranty even if the delivery is not prompt.

Without these condition a buyer can only get unsold batches.

Important notice

The buyer has a maximum 24 hours delay to reply with a LOI or any relevant document to confirm his agreement; then the buyer must pay cash (Swift) within 2-3 days, except if he is well known in the cocoa trade market.
If you cannot work according this rule we probably cannot help you.
