ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Cocoa arrivals at ports in top grower Ivory Coast reached 855,978 tonnes by January 23, up from 759,408 tonnes in the same period a year ago, according to data from Bourse du Cafe et Cacao (BCC) obtained by Reuters on Friday.

The figures showed that 62,209 tonnes of beans were declared during the week between January 17-23 at the ports of Abidjan and San Pedro, up from 32,923 tonnes in the same week of the 2009/2010 season.

The registrations were made ahead of presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara ordering a ban, starting on January 24 and lasting for one month, on new export registrations. The order appears to have been followed by most of the main exporters.
