·1 min read

ABIDJAN, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast's cocoa grind was up 14% year-on-year in July to 57,000 tonnes, data from exporters' association GEPEX showed on Tuesday.

The total grind from the start of the 2021/22 season in October stood at 529,000 tonnes of beans by the end of the July, up from 461,000 tonnes at the same point last season.

The GEPEX data covers six of the largest grinding companies, including Barry Callebaut, Olam and Cargill Inc .

Ivory Coast has a total grinding capacity of 712,000 tonnes. It is the world's top cocoa producer and vies with the Netherlands for the spot of leading grinder. (Reporting by Ange Aboa; Editing by Nellie Peyton)
