Solomon Islands represent a widely scattered group of tropical Islands in the South Pacific. These pristine islands have been called the Hapi Isles. Most rural villagers still live a subsistence lifestyle. Villagers want to work and earn income, to provide schooling for their children and to meet the basic necessities of life.
From our establishment in 2004 our goal has been improving village livelihood. Kokonut Pacific Solomon Islands Ltd (KPSI) provides opportunities for families in rural communities to utilise their abundant coconuts resources to produce Certified Organic & Fair-Trade Virgin Coconut Oil. The Virgin Coconut Oil is produced by a growing network of more than 50 village producers across the Solomon Islands.
Typically, a family owns and runs the oil processing business, which uses the cold-pressed “Direct Micro Expelling” (DME) method of producing the Virgin Coconut Oil. This method maintains the maximum antioxidant and nutrient level and results in Organic Virgin Coconut Oil with an outstanding fresh and clean flavour. All our oil is Quality tested and meets strict hygiene standards.
The family employ 10-12 workers and source coconuts from their own plantation and coconuts from farmers surrounding the village. KPSI sources from over 3000 Ha of registered coconut groves owned by more than 1000 farmers across the country. Over 60% of KPSI Oil revenue goes back to villages, providing an income to over 2000 people, creating a sustainable village industry
