Through its representative office in the Ivory Coast, H.C.C.O guarantees a secure and sustainable supply of cocoa beans to the European confectionary industry

As a service provider for the international chocolate industry, we offer the purchase and export of sustainably produced raw cocoa through our office in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. Our goal is to enable our clients to establish long-term relationships with selected cooperatives. Here we act as the extended arm of the partner and supervise the sourcing process along the entire value chain. This also includes the support and assistance of the cooperatives.

Our team is regularly up-country in the origin. The selection of the cooperatives takes place together with the customer, in several personal visits locally and subsequent evaluation of all parameters.

Advantages of the sourcing process for our clients:

  • Direct relationships with sustainably operating, certified cocoa bean producers
  • Supervision of the purchase process
  • Complete traceability
  • Transparency along the whole value chain
  • Financial efficiencies reimbursed on open book basis

Beyond the sourcing we also broker between industry and local suppliers and producers for:

  • Cocoa products
  • Natural rubber (cup lumps, TSR 10, TSR 20)
  • Annatto (Roucou)
  • Cashew

We use a strong network of local suppliers for each resource.


Our office in Abidjan is also your partner for the import of any product. We are already partnering with established suppliers for different products.
