Olam cocoa boss expects 2017/18 Ivory Coast main crop to be down at least 10 pct

ABIDJAN, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Olam International’s top cocoa official said on Wednesday that he expects Ivory Coast’s production during the October-March main crop to fall by at least 10 percent from last year’s record 1.5 million tonnes.

Gerard Manley said in an interview that Ivory Coast’s overall production of 2 million tonnes in the 2016/17 season was exceptional because of favourable weather and that the country should expect production between 1.85 million tonnes and 2 million tonnes in the coming years.
