The delivery of cocoa beans to Abidjan and San Pedro ports between Monday and Wednesday were estimated 29,000 tonnes, down more than 100% compared with the 62,000 tonnes delivered during the same period last week, exporters told Reuters.

Exporters data showed that 44,000 tonnes were delivered at ports during the same period last year.
