Rubber

Our Rubber business incorporates a crumb rubber processing facility in Côte d’Ivoire, third-party sourcing of natural rubber in various forms, and a joint venture plantation with the Republic of Gabon.

Côte d’Ivoire is the largest exporter of natural rubber in Africa and our team at Société Agro Industrielle de la Comoe sources naturally coagulated, or cup lump, rubber from about 2,000 smallholder farmers and members of cooperatives. Our processing facility then manufactures two grades of top quality Technically Specified Rubber for international customers.

At our JV plantation in Gabon, we have planted 11,000 hectares (ha). As part of our commitment to sustainable development, and in line with our Plantations, Concessions and Farms Code, we are protecting a further 25,000 ha of High Conservation Value forest, buffer zones, wetlands, and village use areas.

We are also supporting the development of an industry standard along with the Sustainable Natural Rubber Initiative.

“Our team of rubber experts, sustainability professionals and manufacturing technicians, are committed to growing our business responsibly, ensuring that our profitable growth is ethical, puts environmental stewardship firmly into our decision-making process, and unlocks mutual value for communities.”

Senior Vice President and Global Head of Rubber

GOUASSOU Awards for SAIC Farmers

In the local dialect, GOUASSOU means 'bonus'. For the SAIC team it’s a recognition programme awarding farmers and cooperatives.

The team knows that there are two financial pinchpoints for rubber farmers - in April, when they need fresh tools for tapping, and in September when the school term starts and fees and books are required. 'Gouassou' supports farmers with materials such as tapping tools and school kits. Awards this year included two motorbikes, three tricycles, tapping tools and safety boots.
