100+ years of coconut expertise Our Coconut jam/ is made by a third-generation coconut miller who has perfected the art of drying coconut without using intensive heat. So the natural antioxidants and nutrients are locked in and the quality of the desiccated coconut is the best it can be, with generations of knowledge guiding every step of the process. Our nectar is traditionally harvested by toddy-tappers who artfully scale the coconut tree to place clay pots at the base of the coconut flower, to collect the naturally sweet sap. The sap is freshly harvested every 12 hours and reduced over low heat to make a 100% preservative-free nectar. The carefully dried coconut and nectar are then ground together finely to make this decadent coconut spread. Purchase of this spread, supports the traditional livelihoods of coconut toddy tappers who pass on the knowledge of tapping expertise to their children; to ethically and sustainably source income from their home garden-grown coconut trees.
Price for quality Our products are not mass-produced in vast industrialised factories. So we do not enjoy the economies of scale that supermarket brands do. We pay the millers and farmers a fair price. 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.
Loyalty Just as we are fiercely loyal to the millers and families we work with, we also want to reward you, our customer loyalty. So every time you purchase a Kokonati product you also collect rewards points that can be redeemed for a discount at checkout. Remember to sign up for the reward points (the tab on the far mid-right edge of this screen).
