The Savannah Fruits Company helps women to organize themselves in structured cooperatives, trains them to the best production practices and organic Fair For Life policies, pre-finances raw materials and ensures a market for their products.
To produce organic extra virgin coconut oil, the processors use the wet method, where the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat without drying first. The « coconut milk » is first pressed or mashed with water then the oil is further separated from the water by fermentation. There is no heat in the process and coconuts are processed straight from the fields to the processing centres where everything is hand-crafted.
This method results in a 100% natural organic extra virgin coconut oil which can be used for many cosmetic and food applications.
