  • The Port of San Pedro in Ivory Coast wants to develop cashew traffic

    Apr 1st, 2019

    The Autonomous Port of San Pedro (Pasp) aims to multiply in the short term by four the volume of cashew nut traffic. It was 25 000 tonnes in 2018 and is expected to reach 30 000 tonnes in 2019. This is very low compared to annual cashew production in Côte d'Ivoire (800 000 tonnes in 2018).

    To do this the management of the Port of San Petro met last week economic operators of the cashew sector to take stock of the difficulties but also the opportunities offered by the port. Operators, while signaling expected improvements in particular in terms of the cost of freight, logistics capabilities, the dematerialization of administrative procedures, etc. would have committed - including companies Olam, Omni Value, Tan Ivory and Dincomci - to increase cashew traffic, according to .
