Impact, special achievements & commitmentsKentaste Products Limited is the largest virgin coconut oil processing company in Kenya operating in the Coastal region of Kenya. Being commercial operation, their activities have a positive impact on the environment, its employees and the surrounding rural communities. Their commitment to their farmers goes beyond adherence to organic and fair-trade principles, it’s based on a belief in partnership and mutual success. They work with over 130 permanent employees, with a network of 1688 contracted farmers who are organic and fair trade trained in 43 villages to date. It is their vision to expand their family of farmers deeper and beyond Kwale County. In order to achieve the positive impact, every invoice issued to their virgin coconut oil customers includes a Fair Trade premium which enables them to pay 5 % into a Fair Trade fund which is managed by a committee of farmers, employees and management. Kentaste Products employees coordinate the projects to ensure that the premium is used meaningfully and efficiently. Some projects, such as supply of school furniture to schools, coconut seedling programs, health insurance among others have so far been done.
