Kosher Certification continues to grow in the Ivory Coast and Africa!

The Ivory Coast or Côte d'Ivoire is located on the West Coast of Africa. The French and Portuguese explorers of the 15th and 16th centuries divided the West Coast of Africa into five Coasts, reflecting the different economies of the regions. The Ivory Coast was aptly name the Côte d'Ivoire by the French and Costa do Marfim by the Portuguese as both mean “Ivory Coast”. This was because the major trade that had developed in the region was the export of Ivory. The Ivory Coast today produces one third of the World’s Cocoa crop and is the World’s largest exporter. It also has the largest economy in Western Africa.

Recently TAFISSA Cocoa of the Ivory Coast gained Kosher Certification through Kosher Check. TAFISSA was established over 25 years ago in San Pedro and is today one of the leading Chocolate and Cocoa manufacturers in the Ivory Coast. TAFISSA exports products around the World including throughout Africa, Europe and North America. They knew that in order to sell product around the World, they would need a Kosher Certification such as Kosher Check that was Globally Accepted.

Over the past decade the demand for Kosher Certification has increased dramatically. The Kosher market has been growing at an annual rate of 15% for the past several years and products bearing Kosher Certification continue to outsell both Organic and All Natural. Today many leading manufacturers in the Ivory Coast and throughout Africa are looking to gain Kosher Certification to assist them with opening new markets around the World. Today many uncertified companies in Africa and around the world are turning to Kosher Check to assist them in their Kosher Certification needs.
