Originally, the first cocoa processing plants were installed in Côte d’Ivoire to treat non-exported beans out of standards or seeding between 120 and 135 beans/100G. The products obtained were then exported. Since ten years ago, the capacity of cocoa processing has experienced an increase and has brought the local processing companies to treat good quality beans as well.
The cocoa bean processing has brought to a great variety of semi-products or products manufactured. During the season 1999/2000, Côte d’Ivoire has transformed 18% of its production of cocoa beans (i.e. 240,000 tons) mainly in semi-products. The transformation of cocoa beans into chocolate includes three groups of technological operations:

  • Treatment of cocoa beans
  • Production of chocolate
  • Production of cocoa powder
