FairTSA Announces Licensing Agreement with Kokonut Pacific
Fair Trade Sustainability Alliance newest Licensee Partner is Kokonut Pacific of Queanbeyan, Australia, whose mission is to improve the well-being of the rural population of tropical countries through the production of premium grade coconut oil.
Dr. Dan Etherington, founder of Kokonut Pacific, invented the Direct Micro Expelling or DME process that produces pure virgin oil at the farm household level within one hour of opening the coconuts, resulting in an exceptional coconut oil quality.
Kokonut Pacific has established a foundation whose purpose is to build the "Coconut Technology Centre" with goals of demonstrating and refining best practices for village-based coconut production, training additional producers, and research and development options.
“We are very pleased to be working with a company like Kokonut Pacific, supporting their mission of providing premium grade coconut oil and other coconut products, in an ethical, moral and sustainable fashion,” said Dr. Winfried Fuchshofen, FairTSA operating company CEO. “Their commitment to healthy living, worker welfare and the environment is a great fit for our business model.”
