Sustainable Sugar that is kind to the planet
Many indigenous island communities call the coconut sugar palm the "Tree of Life" because of the wide range of products that can be sourced from the one plant. This species which is different to the Palm Oil tree, grows in wildlife friendly agro-ecosystems and provide farmers witha sustainable profitable crop.
Palm Sugar is resource friendly - it yields 50 – 75% more sugar per acre than cane sugar while using less than 20 percent of the nutrient resources. The World Bank's FAO contends that it's the single most sustainable sweetener in the world!!
