Established in 2016. Cote d’Ivoire is the largest exporter of rubber in Africa. 80% is produced by smallholders, There are many young plantations yet to start production, presenting opportunities for growth. In 2015, Olam acquired SAIC, a crumb rubber processing facility. Located in Aniassué, about 182 kilometers east of Abidjan, the SAIC plant is the only industrial production facility in the region.
We source our raw material from rubber plantations owned by independent farmers and members of cooperatives. We work closely with them to ensure the development of the sector.
- Supply base of 10 cooperatives and growing
