Ivory Coast is, paradoxically, the only African country with large
coconuts plantations. This situation ensues from late president Felix
Houphouet-Boigny decision during the sixties. Initially tagged as a
doomed project due to problems with transportation, the African coconut
industry is booming.
That's why our Abidjan BE bio, Tesco Nurtur and EurepGap certified specialized company
offers for export Cote d'Ivoire high quality organic coconuts in dry and Reefer
containers. Our products are over Caribbean best quality coconuts.
The reason why we chose calibration, palletized carton
boxes in a reefer container are that with reefer transportation, we
deliver nuts with a long "life", and:
labor cost to prepare pallets or cartoon boxes !
No time lost to verify before re-selling !
Better homogeneity due to calibration !
No stress to destock old coconuts, becoming victims of germination !
Less lost products !
Without forgetting that we can mix cartoon boxes, bags and pallox of
coconuts, with different calibers in the same container, and various
products (coconuts, yams, sweet potatoes …) for the months to come.
And create « private label » or decline existing brands to improve « gamme
effect », as well with cartoon box than for bags (without additional
charges for PP bags).
Coconut varieties: H (Hybride, round nut) et G (Goa, oval nut)
