Coco House Community
We own and manage over 670 acres of organic coconut estates in the Coconut Triangle of Sri Lanka, and have registered over 4,000 acres of organic coconut estates as suppliers to our factory. The Coconut Triangle is composed of several small villages that have vast lands dedicated to the farming and production of coconuts. The communities of many of these villages have been growing coconuts as a livelihood for many years and, over the years, have struggled to keep up with the growing pace of the industry.
This is where we come in. We want to see our community grow, as we grow. We work directly with our farmers to ensure that no harmful practices are incorporated in the farming process, in order to harvest fresh, organic coconuts. In return, our farmers receive important training in important skills and earn fair wages for their supply.
Empowerting the Community
We currently employ 130 staff members at our factory in Dankotuwa. From cleaning to cold pressing to packaging, our staff has been trained to adhere to the highest standards of production and pay attention to the smallest details. Many of our staff belong to the communities that reside in the villages around our factory.
A semi-urban area, Dankotuwa provides few employment opportunities for its residents. At our factory, they are able to learn new skills and earn a sustainable income in a healthy and ethical work environment. We are dedicated to not just helping our staff grow as individuals, but also as a community.
