We source our coconut oil from Ghana, from an ethical company that holds traditional values and sustainable production at its core.
We searched the globe to find a supplier that met with our standards and we really hit the jackpot! They are committed to sustainable production and export of coconut oil. They practice social and environmentally responsible business ethics and work with women’s cooperatives to export high quality, traditionally hand-crafted products from West Africa.
The company supports the women to organise themselves into structured cooperatives and provides training on how to grow, cultivate and manufacture premium coconut oil.
The project empowers women and their communities and ensures a reliable income. It means the women have a secure future so they can provide for their families. Many young women are forced to move to urban areas to find work, however now, thanks to projects like this one, they are able to remain at home but still have a fulfilling career.
The Coconut Oil is hand crafted using traditional methods, and the women are supported in growing and producing the oil in line with Organic and Fair for Life principles, meaning they receive a higher income for their products and it ensures there is a market for this premium coconut oil.
By supporting the community, it eliminates the need to extract from the forest to supplement poor income and contributes to conservation efforts. By working locally, the company ensures minimum disruption to the traditional way of life and can promote cultural and social integrity.
The company partners with the West African Primate Conservation Action, an organisation dedicated to preserving the Kwabre and Tanoe forests. The forests, extending on both sides of the Tanoe River in South West Ghana to South Eastern Ivory Coast, are incredibly bio-diverse and home to the Roloway Monkeys, one of the 25 most endangered species of primates in the world.
A donation is made to the conservation effort every time a coconut is purchased, helping to preserve the home to the monkeys as well as all the other species that live in the forests.
By purchasing your Coconut Oil from us, you can support this incredible project, support communities and families in Ghana, and rest assured you will be using some of the best Coconut Oil there is.
