The coconuts for BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil Fairtrade come from small farmers in Sri Lanka. They cultivate the native coconut palms there in mixed cultivation together with banana and manioc plants. The cultivation and processing are carried out according to strict organic and Fairtrade Standards. The result is a natural, pure white, especially creamy and mild coconut oil.
Our new coconut oil is one of the few Fairtrade Quality coconut products in Germany! A BIO-PLANÈTE local partner supports the small farmers as a designated point of contact and through regular training courses on organic farming. In 2015, it received the FAIRTRADE certification from Flocert. This ensures, among other things, the payment of minimum prices, compliance with social standards, a democratic and transparent organisation, environmentally friendly cultivation and the exclusion of exploitation and child labour. A fixed part of the purchase price of BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil Fairtrade also flows back to Sri Lanka for social and infrastructural projects, so that farmers there can invest in a sustainable future. This additional revenue is used for the purchase and maintenance of water filters and production halls, in kindergartens and in training courses in the region.
The versatile BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil Fairtrade gives your dishes an exotic touch. It is highly heatable and is therefore ideal for frying and baking. The pure white, creamy natural product can be used in a wide variety of ways.
