Fiji is our neighbour and many of us have been there on holidays and enjoyed the sun and happiness of the beautiful islands and people of Fiji. Please help us in this small way to help the local Fijian villages remain on their land.
The decision to use plastic packaging, is often for commercial reasons and not for quality of the product. The decision to use plastic jars is usually made to reduce transport costs by minimising breakage and reducing the cost of the jar.
Sometimes business gets slack when they have your business a long time and take short cuts. We promise not to take you for granted, as we appreciate the benefits you bring. By buying Cocofiji you are helping to use some of the 75,000,000 coconuts that drop on the ground each year in Fiji, and create a market to collect them to make virgin coconut oil. You are helping by providing local villages the option of not drying their coconut meat (copra) and have to rely on selling their copra to a major mill often overseas to return a very small income. Instead they can collect the coconuts without the labouring work of drying them and earn an income in that manner.
Fiji is at a cross-road at the moment with national health. The cross road is about whether being further influenced by big business processed food companies, or retaining the eating habits of old. Many of the young are seduced to a city life and migrate to Suva only to find that the city life is not all that it’s cut out to be. Often they are faced with crime, drunkenness, and a sense of loss to community. Lost in this world, they often fall off the rails and end up in a downward spiral of hopelessness. By using Cocofiji we are playing a small part in reversing this trend.
