Ocean is an Ivorian company exporting cocoa beans and raw cashew nuts. Created in 2013 and based in the port of Abidjan it consist of 15 employees ensuring the purchase, storage and export of quality products that are traceable. Ocean has a strong presence in the field upcountry as close as possible to the source of the product. In that respect we have strong partnership with Socoopacdi and Ecam, cooperatives of cocoa farmers and main suppliers of Ocean. At Ocean our goal is simple: develop a fair and sustainable agriculture. We guarantee the traceability of our supply chain and our products are UTZ and Faire Trade certified. With the help of our European partners Cocoasource and Tony’s Chocolonely, we are developing and supervising the creation of several social projects for the farmers of our cooperatives.
The Société Coopérative des Producteurs de Café-Cacao de Divo (SOCOOPACDI) has been created in December of 2001 and is based in Hermankono Dies in the Loh Djiboua (Ivory Coast). Cooperative of over 1’000 farmers, Socoopacdi’s main goal is to improve the welfare of its members. The logistics and marketing of the goods is centralized by the cooperative ensuring more efficiency and higher income for the farmer. With the financial help of Ocean, Socoopacdi is now certified Fair Trade and UTZ which allows to market the cocoa at a premium while ensuring several social projects are implemented. Thanks to continuous training sessions, Socoopacdi ensures the cocoa produced by the farmers is of quality and traceable.
