Coconut Sugar from Kokonut Pacific
Connecting more than 50 village units and creating income for over 1000 people across the Solomon Islands, Kokonut Pacific work with rural populations in tropical countries to help better their lives by improving their utilisation of coconuts.
They provide extraction systems for communities to turn coconuts that would have otherwise been wasted due to inaccessibility into valuable product, creating a reliable income stream for those in remote areas. Their goal is to facilitate access and opportunity so that those who want to work can earn a living through trade over charity.
We’ve been buying coconut sugar from Kokonut Pacific for four years now, using the sugar in our housemade chocolate mixture, sticky chai and brewed kombucha. The quality is excellent but it’s the values of the organisation that will keep us as customers for many years to come.
