Vink Corporation has a significant integrated bean-sourcing presence in West Africa, where two-thirds of the world’s cocoa crop is grown.
Our WACOT Limited cocoa division in Nigeria started its operations in 2015, and in a short time has achieved the distinction of becoming one of Nigeria’s leading and trusted exporters of sustainable and conventional Nigeria origin cocoa beans. WACOT Limited has operations in all the major cocoa growing states in South-East and South-West Nigeria, namely Abia, Cross Rivers, Oyo, Ogun, Ondo and Osun. And is among the very few Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa suppliers in Nigeria, who run their own sustainable cocoa program in Nigeria.
Due to Ghana’s controlled marketing of cocoa exports through the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Vink Corporation’s is only involved in bean sourcing through its sister company, Fludor Ghana Limited (Fludor), a Licensed Buying Company (LBC) in Ghana.
Fludor was incorporated in 2014 and today, it sources cocoa from 70 buying locations (districts) across the key cocoa growing regions of Ghana. Since its establishment, sustainability has been an integral part of Fludor’s business operations and growth plan. The company, through its farmer centric operations, has a target of having 30% of its cocoa as sustainable by 2025.
Through our Group’s strong West African presence, we have the knowledge, experience and network to expand our sustainable sourcing network and thus, achieve our target of being the sustainable cocoa partner for global processors, traders and chocolate makers looking to source sustainable beans from the region.
