The Story Behind Niulife
When I first started using Coconut Oil I just purchased a jar from my health food shop. I made sure it was cold pressed and extra virgin coconut oil but was not concerned about where or who produced it. As time went on and I was using more and more coconut oil I found the 400gram jars that I was purchasing were costing me alot of money and I found that I would be out of them before I could blink. I needed a new plan.
I needed to find where to buy it in bulk. A friend of mine who was also using copious amounts of coconut oil beat me to it and found Niulife. Right from the start I really liked their website but more than that I liked the story behind the oil, so to speak. The people, the purpose and the method.
Kokonut Pacific – The company behind Niulife
In 1994 Kokonut Pacific invented the Direct Micro Expelling (DME) technology to take coconut processing back to the farms where the nuts are grown. Here families can produce extra virgin coconut oil within 1 hour of opening the coconut. They have set up DME systems across the Pacific, Indonesia, India PNG, Solomon Islands, Africa and in the Indian Ocean with dramatic effects on the lives of local communities.
The DME Standard
The DME Standard is a set of quality and ethical standards that the Direct Micro Expelling method of producing virgin coconut oil achieves and Kokonut Pacific adheres to. Our “best practice” process guarantees an exceptionally high quality of oil for the world market, sustainable production for the operators, and maintenance of renewable resources for the earth.
Why I chose Niulife for coconut oil is:
Kokonut Pacific – Niulife are a company that I’m proud to support.
They have ticked all the boxes that make an ethical company.
They are a company who believes in a greater purpose then just making money.
They have a range of coconut products not just oil.
I have used the soaps, coconut flour, coconut sugar, coconut butter as well as the oil.
My favourite and most economical way for buying coconut oil is to buy the 5litre jerry can.
