Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

Our virgin coconut oil comes from Sri Lanka, where the coconut bearing palm tree Cocos nucifera is a key contributor to not only the diet, but also the history and culture of the country. The flesh of the coconut is dense with natural oils, and provides a range of essential nutrients making them an incredibly nutritious as well as easily accessible source of food for local people.

Sri Lanka

Sourced from across the globe

As well as thriving in the wild, the coconut palm is widely cultivated across the world. Sri Lanka alone is estimated to produce over 2 million tonnes of fresh coconuts each year. This industry provides jobs to local people in areas where unemployment is otherwise high, another way in which coconut cultivation benefits local communities.

The coconuts used to produce our coconut oil are harvested from organic plantations in Sri Lanka. These coconut estates offer employment to local people, especially women who have the opportunity to work close to their homes, being employed as lab technicians, accountants and cleaning personnel. We are proud to be associated with an organisation which takes such an ethical stance, operating with consideration for the local community. In addition to providing regular work and a fair wage to all employees, our organic coconut suppliers also fund education in local areas and offer a food package to assist employees in feeding their families.
