Logistics for cocoa

Responsible for your cocoa. The cocoa bean has been one of our most important commodities for decades. The Vollers Group is among the most experienced logistics experts for this natural tropical product, which mainly comes to Europe from West African countries such as the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon.

We do the handling of this sensitive raw material via our European port locations and, apart from transport and storage, we also offer added value services such as cleaning, pest control or blending of the cocoa beans. The goods destined for the industry mostly only remain with us for a short period of time. The situation is different for the cocoa traded at the stock exchange, which we frequently keep in safe storage for a number of years. We are a licenced warehouse keeper for this service at the important locations for the London cocoa exchange. Our customers are both small and major cocoa traders and industrial, processing producers of cocoa mass, powder, butter and chocolate.
