Reports suggest that bean arrivals at Ivorian ports remain strong, averaging somewhere between 30,000 MT and 35,000 MT of beans per week despite mixed weather seen earlier in some growing regions. Based on these reports, total arrivals from October through May are variously estimated at 1.80 MMT to 1.83 MMT of beans.

With more rains reported recently that would support bean development and quality, there is little to suggest that total production for the season will fail to surpass the 2.1 MMT mark—a new record for the world’s top cocoa origin.
