The AFRICA SOURCING team as, former employee of ARMAJARO was a pioneer in Ivory Coast as related to RAINFOREST ALLIANCE certification programs and ICCO traceability. These programs referred to as ARMAJARO Sustainability Certified Cocoa (ASCC) and ARMAJARO Traceability of Ivorian Cocoa (ATIC) are reaching a vast network of cooperatives with more than 30 000 farmers spread all over the main areas of Cocoa productions (East, Center and West) and enabled us to export annual quantities reaching around 20 000 tons of certified cocoa beans in 2012. Today, this rich experience allows AFRICA SOURCING to be an undeniable expert in certification and traceability.
