The first product developed along these lines was Niugini Organic 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. When the organic quality of PNG’s coconuts was realised, the villagers were encouraged to harvest the nuts commercially for the first time in decades, and a small modern plant was built to extract the virgin oil without heat. After extensive lab analysis our mill was able to meet and exceed the minimum quality standards to produce an excellent raw unrefined, not bleached or deodorised, single origin, 100% organic virgin coconut oil.
Fresh from the shell, the coconut meat is quickly cold-pressed and left unrefined to preserve the natural nutritive essence of the coconut This is the source of all Niugini Organic Coconut Oil. Today, under a fair trade scheme that ensures that the villagers are paid a fair price for their coconuts, our small holder plantations have been transformed into a happier, healthier and more prosperous place.
The first ever commercial shipment of organic virgin coconut oil from PNG direct to Australian retailers was completed in December 2008.
