About the company
I grew up in the Philippines, mainly in the area of Metro Manila where the coconut industry is of vital importance to millions of its people. Our family saw poverty and viewed firsthand the struggle of the Filipino coconut farmer. Although we were fortunate to thrive, the desperate and unjust wages coconut farmers were paid, tugged at our hearts. We made it our mission to change and positively alter the economic landscape of the Filipino farmer. As a result, NUCO organic and natural coconut products were born.
It is among the country’s leading export.
• 23% of the Philippine population is somehow directly or indirectly involved in the coconut industry.
• More than 90% of those working in the coconut industry live below the poverty line. Tragically millions of Filipino coconut farmers are trapped in working poverty,considered modern day slaves. They are paid paltry wages, not because their product has so little value, but because the value is added later in the production chain.
