Cocoa Futures Market News and Commentary

Cocoa Prices Soar to Record Highs as Ivory Coast Cocoa Production Plummets

March ICE NY cocoa (CCH24) on Tuesday closed +293 (+5.13%), and Mar ICE London cocoa #7 (CAH24) closed +139 (+2.95%).

Cocoa prices on Tuesday surged to record highs.  Lower cocoa production in the Ivory Coast, the world's largest producer, is a major bullish factor for cocoa prices.  Monday's government data showed Ivory Coast farmers shipped 1.12 MMT of cocoa to ports from October 1 to February 18, down -33% from the same time last year.

Cocoa prices have underlying support as the intense seasonal Harmattan winds and insufficient rain in West Africa are drying out cocoa fields and causing damage to the Ivory Coast mid-crop.

On January 25, the Ivory Coast cocoa regulator, Le Conseil Cafe-Cacao, halted forward cocoa sales for the 2024/25 season.  The regulator halted forward sales until it had a clear picture of expected cocoa production in the Ivory Coast.  The halt adds to the tumult of the region's cocoa supplies, and the impact could multiply supply concerns.
