QTI's Activities

The activity covers all operations ranging from purchase (procurement) to sale (export) :

  • Sourcing Upcountry: We have our own upcountry warehouses in the main producing regions in Cote d’Ivoire. Actually we have three structures in the area of Bondoukou Katiola and Boniere for the raw cashew nuts. We have additional warehouses in Duekoue and Divo for the cocoa and coffee, staffed by qualified local staff. Our upcountry sourcing, directly from producers covers more than 75% of our annual volume and ensures the highest quality of the products.
  • The quality control of raw cashew nuts is by the trained staff from Vietnam and is done in our separate laboratory located in Abidjan to ensure that the product is in compliance with export standards and the specific requirements of our customers.
  • Our purchasing network in Abidjan is composed of suppliers (mainly cooperatives) from production areas all across Côte d’Ivoire. Our portfolio of potential suppliers is composed of about 100 contacts.
  • The products are then stored in our own storage facilities pending shipping.
  • Appropriate handling is used for shipping, and products are shipped from the seaports of Abidjan and San Pedro to various destinations.
