Coconut Oil

· Virgin ·
400 ml

The fresh, ripe coconuts for our BIO PLANÈTE Fairtrade Coconut Oil are grown in the Philippines. More than 80 certified small farmers earn their secure livelihood here by growing coconut for our fairly traded Coconut Oil. Both the cultivation and the processing are carried out according to strict organic and Fairtrade standards. With a long pole or by hand, the small farmers pick the coconuts on site, which are then gently processed. The result is convincing: a natural, pure white, particularly creamy and mild Coconut Oil. 

The BIO PLANÈTE partner on site supports the small farmers as an important and constant contact person, ensures their medical care and equips them with work clothes, among other things. In 2018, it obtained Fairtrade certification from the FLOCERT certification company.  The seal provides small farmer cooperatives with stable prices and longterm trading partnerships. Both farmers and employees on plantations receive an additional Fairtrade premium for community projects. The standards also contain criteria on democratic organisational structures, environmental protection and safe working conditions. More info at www.info.fairtrade.net.

"Zero Waste" tip for the further use of the jars 

You can easily reuse our Coconut Oil jars. Be it for preserving jam, nicely designed as a tealight or as a storage container for tea, cereals or legumes. Get more suggestions at Upcycling & Creativity

Since we use oil-soluble glue for the labels, the best way to remove the label from the coconut jars is with oil.  Simply coat the label with oil, let it soak in overnight and peel off easily in the morning.
