With the goal to locally process cocoa grown by Ivorian farmers, Transcao is pioneering the next era of origin processing in the Ivory Coast. The Societe de Transformation de Cacao, operating as Transcao, was established in 2019 by the Consuil du Café-Cacao (CCC), the Ivory Coast/Côte d’Ivoire cocoa management body. Transcao’s world class production team, formerly ADM Cocoa, from West Africa and Europe, have spent 12 months revamping the factory and training the operating team. Transcao has an existing processing facility in San Pedro with capacity for 30,000 MT of bean grind. Additional facilities are under construction in San Pedro and Abidjan to support 180,000 tons by 2023 with farm-to-final product tracking and tracing through Petrichor.
