Revered as the most useful tree on earth, the coconut palm has generously provided civilizations with all their needs to survive. Its roots, fronds, and trunk are used for shelter, light, furniture, and household utensils. But its most sacred part is its fruit, the coconut, which is also the most important ingredient we use at Sejoyia Foods.
Our coconut oil comes from Tradin’ Organics who works with a small company in the Philippines. To help encourage the growth of this company, Tradin’ prepays for repeated orders. The factory owners then share this funding by paying farmers in advance for produce. Since the beginning, the factory buys coconuts at prices intended to support sustainable coconut farming. The company and farmers have been Fairtrade certified since 2013.
Through persistent effort on innovation and continual improvement, the factory’s coconut milk expeller achieves the highest rate of extraction in the industry.
