*DME (Direct Micro Expelling)

The coconut oil is cold-pressed from fresh coconuts within 1 hour of opening the coconut using hand operated presses. You can go to this website to see our coconut oil being made by the local people in the Solomon Islands using the DME process. This means that the coconut oil is supremely fresh as direct micro expelling avoids high temperature industrial pressing, hence the term ‘extra virgin’ for this superior grade of coconut oil.  You can go to this website for full details of the DME process used to make our coconut oil. 

**Fair trade status

At the present time there are no Fairtrade Labelling Organisation (FLO) protocols established for Fairtrade with coconuts.   However we work to three fair trade models which give fair trade status to our coconut oil. Please go to this website to see details of the fair trade status of our coconut oil.

Uses

  • Ideal cooking oil for frying or baking. Lovely for roasting potatoes, kumara, pumpkin, parnips and yams.
  • A natural spread to replace margarine or butter.
  • Delicious in salad dressings or smoothies.
  • A healthy and great tasting inclusion in your diet.
  • External use for skin care.

Long shelf life  - does not have to be refrigerated.   Coconut oil is very stable and resistant to rancidity but, like all oils, care should be taken not to introduce water into it (e.g., a wet spoon). This can reduce shelf life and even encourage mould to grow.

  1. Fair Trade organic extra-virgin coconut oil 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2015

    I LOVE this product! It is the only oil I use for cooking. I also add it to my smoothies, to my muesli/porridge, I use it instead of butter, I moisturise my skin with it and occasionally I'll even eat it straight from a spoon! It is the best coconut oil I've tasted.
