Direct Micro Expelling

"Empowering and Bringing Hope"

Our suppliers use a totally different approach to coconut processing compared to that of the copra industry. With Direct Micro Expelling (DME), we take (small-scale) processing to the nuts rather than taking the nuts (in debased form) to a (large-scale) processing plant. It is:

  • Direct - quick, pure oilwithin on hour of opening a coconut.
  • Micro - small scale (family farm size) possible.
  • Expelling - extraction of extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO).

The result is the production of a vastly superior Extra Virgin Coconut Oil...

Sourcing our Pure Coconut Oil from the Solomon Islands provides meaningful employment to many teams of men and women and production can take place all year round and in virtually any weather.

The System of DME provides services of training, extension, credit, quality control and marketing services. All levels of operation are pleasing to participants, profitable and environmentally sustainable. In order to be able to enter this wide range of markets, the DME process, for all its simplicity, uses advanced technology to produce its equipment. Thus although the Press is manually operated, our suppliers use advanced laser cutting technology to make nearly all the components. This ensures accuracy and reliability. So too, they use stainless steel for all production surfaces.

Superior equipment has been matched by Good Management Practices (GMP) at each production site and in the transport and packaging of the oil for the final customer.

Coconol brings to you a high quality, pure product produced in a safe and friendly economical environment!
