Mitsubishi Corp booked an impairment loss of about 28 billion yen ($255 million) on its stake in Olam International in the October-December quarter but it has no plan to trim its stake in the Singaporean commodity trader, its CFO said on Tuesday. Japan's biggest trading house also took an impairment loss of about 31 billion yen on its investment in iron ore mines in Chile in the same quarter due to an extra environmental cost and a repair cost for a broken shiploader at a port, Chief Financial Officer Kazuyuki Masu told a news conference.

ABIDJAN/NEW YORK, Jan 16 (Reuters) - More small cocoa exporters in Ivory Coast were unable to fulfill their international contracts at the end of last year, and sources at the country's cocoa board told Reuters that this group asked to postpone 70 percent of October-to-December commitments due to a lack of financing.

In October through December, small exporters were allocated contracts amounting to 180,000 tonnes of cocoa.

Front-month New York cocoa futures traded on ICE have risen nearly 15 percent since the start of December, mainly on worries over consistently dry weather in Ivory Coast, traders said. The conditions were brought on by seasonal Harmattan winds that sweep in sand from the Sahara, which can ravage cocoa pods and sap soil moisture, leading to smaller beans.
