So, if Mars, Nestle, Glencore and other big boys would want to put purchases from Ghana and Ivory Coast on hold or keep them at minimum, they would probably succeed for some time. They can also buy more from Indonesia and other African producers. They wouldn't be able to satisfy all their need in CC but they can be depleting warehouses too. At least this is what I would do if I'd be them.
What will happen then to Africans who would be sitting on CC and be unable to sell it while being hungry? Farmers do not have buffer stock of cash. They will go out angry and governments will be at precarious position. The fact that big boys did not bend with 2600 blackmailing probably says that they can take that challenge and see who has more fat under the skin to survive such confrontation.
