Coconut Sugar & Coconut Syrup from Indonesia
Our organic coconut sugar is sourced from Indonesia where it is collected from the sugary sap of the organic coconut palms. We work with over 3,000 farmers who collect the nectar of the flowers and process it into organic coconut sugar. Each farmer has an average of 25 trees that they use for collection and coconut production. The farmers scale the trees, selectively wrap bundles of coconut palm flowers and collect the nectar into the bamboo collectors. They are careful to only collect from flower bundles on specific trees in order to let other trees continue their growth into mature coconuts. The nectar is collected twice a day, in the morning and afternoon.
