Empowering and bringing hope
Kokonut Pacific Pty Ltd is a for-profit social enterprise. Our mission, inspired by the example of Jesus, is to raise the well-being of coconut communities through the production of premium grade virgin coconut oil and other coconut products.
The Company’s vision is encapsulated in the motto, “Empowering and Bringing Hope.” In partnership with local communities we improve lives by building sustainable value chains and revitalising the smallholder coconut industry with appropriate technology.
We also inform consumers about the valuable health benefits of coconut and empower their choices to create change.
Suppliers of Direct Micro Expelling Equipment (DME®)
Since its foundation in 1994, Kokonut Pacific and its DME® technology has contributed to creating significant long-term benefits in health, wellbeing and the environment - at a time of rapid population growth, and when the need to protect the environment from a range of threats, including climate change is critical.
Today, Kokonut Pacific works collaboratively with over 600 certified organic farms in the Solomon Islands, with almost 40 village-based DME® processors installed on five islands. Kokonut Pacific has also helped set up DME® units in other coconut countries: Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, as well as Africa, Asia and South America.
