OUR STORY

A shared passion for coconuts since 2008

In 2008, already passionate about coconuts, our French-English family wanted to develop and share the different products from this exceptional plant. In search of the highest quality, we noticed that there was unfortunately little to offer in France by way of coconut products, that were both organic and fair trade.

We therefore had to begin by looking for an ideal harvesting and production site that would be able to meet our requirements: an artisanal farm that practices sustainable agriculture, does not use wild animals for harvesting, refuses child labour and meets our environmental concerns.

After identifying our farmer in the Philippines, we created La Maison du Coco to offer the purest coconut products: cold-pressed virgin coconut oil and 15% coconut milk (awarded best organic product of the year 2020). We then expanded our range with coconut flour, coconut sugar, coconut vinegar, coconut cream and coconut water.

La Maison du coco team and coconut manufacturers About us
Our fairtrade-certified coconut manufacturers offer products derived from coconuts. They are mainly located in the northern part of Mindanao, the larger island of the Philippines. They buy coconuts from many small farmers in the surrounding villages, especially in the primary forests of the hills around them.

OUR PARTNERS

Fair Trade
Sustainability Alliance

The Fair Trade Sustainability Alliance (FairTSA) is a non-profit organisation specialising in fair trade, community development and the development of social responsibility standards.
FairTSA ensures that all farmers earn at least the minimum wage in their country and receive a 10% pay rise after three years of operation.
As well as checking that working conditions are compliant, FairTSA also checks that farmers have unions to represent them and take action if problems arise.

Bureau Veritas

Bureau Veritas Certification is an independent certification and control body for organic agriculture, providing consumers with a guarantee of product conformity.
With its team of specially trained engineers and technicians, Bureau Veritas Certification France is involved in the entire Organic Agriculture chain, from production on the farm to the finished product, at the level of the food industry and product distribution.

Fairtrade

The Fairtrade label was created in 1988. It guarantees that the products come from fair trade. The producers are paid a fair price and benefit from good working conditions according to the standards of the International Labour Organization.

It also integrates ecological criteria concerning the agricultural practices in terms of protection and preservation of biodiversity. This label supports small producers through the receipt of a premium to finance community projects.

In the interest of transparency, it also allows for traceability from production to marketing. It guarantees the consumer that the products respect social, economic and environmental standards.

ECOCERT

ECOCERT is a French organization recognized in France and internationally for the certification of organic and natural cosmetics. It proposes a reference that sets high and strict standards to encourage companies to adopt more responsible practices.

 After an audit of ingredients, suppliers, manufacturing process and packaging, our raw coconut oil has been certified COSMOS ORGANIC by Ecocert.

This certification guarantees that at least 95% of the plants it contains are organic and that at least 20% of organic ingredients are present in the total formula. With this guarantee of quality, the consumer is assured that this product has been manufactured with respect for the environment (prevention of packaging, choice of processes…).

Our commitments

La Maison du coco is committed on a daily basis to an eco-responsible approach that respects the human values ​​that have animated it since its creation.
