We process crumb rubber in Côte d’Ivoire and source natural rubber in various forms from third-parties.
Côte d’Ivoire is the fourth largest exporter of natural rubber globally and our team at Société Agro Industrielle de la Comoe (SAIC) sources naturally coagulated cup lump rubber from over 15,000 smallholder farmers. We then process this into Technically Specified Rubber (TSR) and export to various destinations around the world.
Our factory at Aniassue, which is ISO 9001 certified, is one of the most modern setups around the world, employs around 300 people and has a capacity of processing 44,000 MT of TSR annually.
Committed to Growing Responsibly
As part of our commitment to support farmer livelihoods, we map our smallholders land. We overlay agri information such as the number of trees and their age, with social factors like the number of children and access to clean water, healthcare and education. Information is collated on our own technology platform,
We help farmers to improve yields, minimise environmental impact and improve livelihoods through tailored plans. For our businesses and customers, we can mitigate risks, estimate future production and predict the properties of the harvested latex.
