Our Organic Farms & Factories
Our farms are in the heart of the famed coconut triangle, a lush and rustic environment where a simple way of life still prevails, pollution is minimal and organic farming has been a way of life for generations.
This lifestyle still continues and we ensure that it stays uninterrupted. Though our production facilities are some of the most modern in the country, our organic cultivation involves traditional farming methods -utilizing optimal natural inputs including cow dung, compost heaps, rice straw etc., allowing for amiable and successful cultivation.
The growing demand for our loved coconuts from the world requires us to source our requirements through both our own plantations and also through certified organic farming networks, where the necessary knowledge and training is farmer families with the objective of helping them gain knowledge needed to develop sustainable agriculture and diversified income sources through organic farming.
Our state of the art factories pay every detail to producing the finest quality coconut products while our food technologist constantly innovate new additions to our range.
Our Love For Nature
Our philosophy in preserving and sustaining our surroundings is an utmost priority, Mother Nature is the core of our organic products and it's our turn to take care of her in whatever ways possible.
It's well understood that in today's world we are destroying more than what we can build, deforestation and pollution is taking a toll on the delicate bio diversity surrounding us, the life which supports us. Though we are caught in this vicious cycle we ensure that we are not part of this unwanted destruction.
Our plantations are equipped with some of the irrigation methods Sri Lankans Kings used in ancient times; which is a construction of soil dams across streams at different elevations with overflows, thus a large capacity of rainwater is harvested in water reservoirs. Rainwater collected in reservoirs at different elevation along the stream leads to uplift the ground water table which in turn has benefited coconut production. The ponds are used effectively as ideal water sources for irrigation during dry season and also serve as watering holes to different small animals which live in the plantations.
Our factories require a vast amount of steam for production, furnace oil is the easiest but polluting option, yet nature always had the answer and we listened. Our plantations generate tonnes of coconut shells and we put to use this natural energy source by installing coconut shell boilers which now generates the total steam required to operate the entire plant. Furthermore all waste water is channeled back to watering the plants surrounding the factory premises.

Is there a difference between coconut oil and coconut butter?
Yes, there is definitely a difference between the two. Think peanut butter vs peanut oil. One is thick and smooth while the other is liquid( at room temperature). Coconut butter includes the meat of the coconut while coconut oil does not.
How do I melt hardened coconut butter?
Depending on the climate it can be smooth, liquid, rock hard or even crumbly. It also burns very quickly. A few options: You can preheat the oven to 350 F and place the coconut butter inside. Take it out after five minutes, or if you need a small amount you can place it on a candle warmer or immerse the bottle in hot water for few minutes.
What is Coconut flour? How is it different from grain flour?
Coconut flour is dried, defatted and ground coconut meat. It is fresh and organic, with a wheat flour consistency. Coconut flour is low in carbohydrates and boasts a lower “net” carb amount than other flours, including soy flour. Net carbs are the digestible carbohydrates in the flour. The flour is gluten- free, hypoallergenic and a good source of protein and fiber. Compared with wheat flour, which has a 27 percent fiber content, coconut flour has a fiber content of 61 percent. It is a better choice for diabetics and those with celiac disease. Replacing 15 percent to 25 percent of the flour in baking recipes with coconut flour can usually be done without changing the outcome. Some recipes still work if the entire flour amount is substituted with coconut flour.
