Cocoa Market Report for March 2022

Abidjan, 20 April 2022 – The International Cocoa Organization releases the Cocoa Market Report for March 2022. The current report highlights the following insights:

  • Amid global economic uncertainties, cocoa prices have virtually not witnessed any significant price movements in March 2022. The ICCO average monthly prices for March 2021 and March 2022 were virtually at par at US$2,462 per tonne and US$2,461 per tonne respectively.
  • In Côte d’Ivoire, the 2021/22 mid-crop started in April with the Government’s decision to maintain the farm gate price at XOF 825 per kilogram of cocoa beans; identical to the farm gate price set for the main crop.
  • In Ghana, the latest information indicates that purchases of graded and sealed cocoa beans were very low year-on-year (down by 34% to 524,000 tonnes as at 31 March 2022) mainly due to unfavourable weather conditions that occurred in the country’s main cocoa growing regions
