Benefits A coconut has more naturally occurring minerals and phytonutrients than any other seed or nut used for extracting oil. This is simply the reason why coconut oil has many advantages over other oil sources. Comprised of approximately 64 per cent medium-chain fatty acids, virgin coconut oil is considered a functional superfood. It is naturally rich in Lauric acid (approx.51 percent), only the second most natural source of lauric acid; mother’s milk is the other natural source. Beyond its nutritional benefits, coconut oil also has healing properties that support health and general well-being.

100+ years of coconut expertise Our Coconut Oil is made by a third-generation coconut miller an engineer by profession who has fine-tuned the process of extracting the best quality coconut oils backed by generations of coconut expertise. Modernised and certified with ISO and Organic certifications, the mill plays a vital role in the welfare and wellbeing of the village community. The children of our workforce are provided with school books and stationery for the entire school year! The mill also operates a not-for-profit brick and tile factory and a metal workshop that provides work for the villagers, building material for the community, and keeps the factory equipment ship-shape! Staff quarters are also provided for those who travel far from home. What’s more, we even grow our own organic vegetables onsite so the factory kitchen can provide a wholesome healthy lunch buffet for all at work.
Price for quality Our oils are not mass-produced in vast industrial-sized factories. So we do not enjoy the economies of scale that supermarket brands do. But specifically batch-crafted for New Zealand, Kokonati products are made with multigenerational expertise and knowledge to be the best quality they can be and so easily justify the premium price for the premium quality you are getting.
