How It All Began

It all began in 2010 when John, Myles’ father and Adrienne’s husband was up in the outer islands of Fiji, helping the government with a renewable energy project that’d go on to positively change the lives of many local residents. Nearing the end of the project a local village chief approached John. The Chief had been impressed with the work that he’d done for the local community. He then asked if John would be interested in continuing his support and working with the small village communities. Their goal was to create employment for the younger generation that were struggling to stay in their local villages due to a lack of jobs. This often resulted in them having to move away from their families and plantations to seek work elsewhere. The chief mentioned that for generations they had been producing natural, hand harvested, raw, extra virgin coconut oil. However, they needed help to convert these resources into jobs.
So we teamed up and it became our joint goal to keep these families together.
Not long after this conversation there was a small jar of coconut oil on our family dinner table. This is where the fun really started.
After much research and development, Purecoco was created, and with the mindset and mantra to support the Pacific and offer only the most premium, natural, nutrient dense and ethically sourced wholefoods around.
Since 2010 we’ve expanded our range of coconut and cacao products, sourced ethically and renewably from the Pacific and South-East Asia.
Your story is our story, and together we can continue to support these villages for years to come.
