ACT International AG was founded in 2018 in Zug, Switzerland, based on the strong business ties developed by ACT International Ltd. The main business objective of the company is the trading of cocoa beans and cocoa-related products in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Canada, USA, and South America. Having a good understanding and knowledge of the African markets, ACT International has quickly established itself as a strong and reliable company in the cocoa trading industry.

Cocoa is in greater demand than ever, but this commodity is also facing certain interconnected and complex issues such as competition for resources, supply chain and transparency issues, climate changes, pressure from growing populations and the global commitment to sustainability. To help safeguard the accessibility to cocoa resources, it’s important to respond to all these challenges in a proactive manner and develop long- term sustainable strategies to meet the demands of supplier and businesses involved in the trading of cocoa and cocoa-related products.

Having a team of highly-skilled specialists in the trading industry, with extensive experience in the trading of property, forex and commodity, therefore investing in cocoa was a natural evolution for our trading portfolio. Due to the excellent business connections established so far, we are able to negotiate long-term contracts with our cocoa beans suppliers, enabling them to conclude business transactions profitable for all the parties involved.
