Indonesia - Organic Coconut Sugar & Oil

Tradin Organic has a large-scale coconut sourcing project in Indonesia. On the island of Java, coconut farmers harvest fresh coconuts which are then processed into organic coconut oil. Our Javan coconut farmers also harvest the nectar of the coconut flower, which is the basis for our organic coconut sugar.

Organic Coconut Sugar from Java

Organic Coconut Sugar from Java

In the lush forests of Java, our organic certified coconut farmers harvest coconut nectar gathered from the flower of the coconut tree. Our farmers take the nectar home where it is then boiled and reduced into sugar blocks. These blocks are sold to a local processing facility which finally processes the bricks into granulated organic coconut sugar. Our agronomists support the farmers with training and technical support. In addition, we provide quality management support to the processing facility, to help to ensure the high quality and food safety of the organic coconut sugar.

Organic Coconut Oil

In addition to our organic coconut sugar we also source organic coconut oil from Java, where almost 400 farmers are growing and harvesting coconuts using organic production methods. After harvest, the coconuts are brought to a local processing facility where they are processed into organic coconut oil. To ensure that our products are in line with the highest standards for quality, food safety and organic integrity, we run frequent test analyses on our organic coconut oil throughout the year.

Empowering Organic Coconut Farmers in Indonesia

Empowering Organic Coconut Farmers in Indonesia

More than 1,200 farmers in Java are involved in the growing and harvesting of organic coconut nectar which is used for our coconut sugar. Women play a vital role in processing the coconut nectar into sugar bricks, providing a much needed income to women in the region. As a result of this opportunity for women's employment, many women have gone on to lead some of the coconut farmer organizations in the area. The income generated from coconut sugar production and the organic premium enables farmers to invest in their communities. In recent years, several projects were completed including the construction of several schools, mosques, roads and bridges.
