For those who want to experience the Philippines’ famed coconuts in their own home - look no further than Nuco Coconut Products! Not only will you enjoy the great taste and health benefits that come with each product, you’ll also benefit families and community-based farmers on the island.
The History of Nuco
Having grown up in the Philippines in the Metro Manila area, Nuco founder Ricky Santos said that he was inspired to found the company based upon his experiences witnessing poverty and the plight of underpaid coconut farmers struggling to make ends meet. He started Nuco in 2012 and began selling its organic and natural coconut products sourced from Philippines farms.
As one of the country’s top exports, coconuts in turn play a major role in Philippines life; 23% of the population is involved in the industry, while over 90% of individuals who devote their lives to the businesses live below the poverty line.
Since its founding, Nuco has operated with a mission to bring about positive change for Filipino farmers and transform their lives for the better. The company’s partners support local and global communities - notably Dignity Business Partners, which has plans to transform the farming economy by purchasing coconuts directly from a network comprised of as many as 600 local family farms. Locals will also be hired for positions so as to facilitate operations.
In addition to its work with Dignity, Nuco also donates a portion of its profits to other social, economic and environmental causes, efforts that have in turn resulted in local job creation and increased the use of sustainable and eco-friendly farming models. As a result, farmers themselves have more of a say in the industry when they see increased profit margins.
Nuco customers can feel good knowing that they’re helping contribute to causes intended to eradicate poverty and improve farmers’ lives - they’ll also feel rejuvenated after consuming the company’s products and experiencing the positive health benefits.
