Dignity Coconuts’ production plant is located in a small seaside village in Bicol, Philippines. The company currently employs 121 local workers with plans to expand to 200 workers at full operation. Coconuts are purchased from 156 local farmers with plans to contract with 300, all of whom were organic certified by Dignity. Future plans also include expansion to other areas in Southeast Asia and beyond.
Dignity Coconuts was born in 2010 out of a conviction to stop sex trafficking and modern-day slavery. A successful Kickstarter campaign enabled them to launch their own brand of premium, raw virgin coconut oil in 2016. Their jars are now offered in over 1,200 retail stores across the US, including Stop & Shop, Giant Food, Meijer, Coborn’s, Woodman’s and Central Market.
Dignity pioneered a centrifuge method of removing the moisture based on gravity to create a truly raw coconut oil that retains all of the micronutrients. In addition to being 100% Raw, Dignity Coconut Oil is 100% Organic, Non-GMO, Direct Trade and bottled at the source for freshness.
GSN’s Remarks: This is a great oil to use in fat washing a spirit. Try it in rum, tequila, bourbon or even Calvados for a unique flavor twist. We especially love the idea of supporting a company who is ethical and is making a positive change in the lives of people. Makes a great stocking stuffer for the mixologist or home chef. We also recommend picking up a copy of Dave Arnold’s Liquid Intelligence to learn about the various techniques used in fat washing. GSN Rating: A+
