Monkey Statement

Koko sources its coconuts from known suppliers that go through a rigorous approval process and are then reviewed and audited regularly. As part of these processes we thoroughly assess growing and harvesting practices to ensure that no animals are used. We have never used monkeys to harvest our coconuts and never will. In addition, Koko’s main suppliers grow shorter, hybrid trees. These can be harvested by people from the ground using tools and knives meaning that no animal labour is necessary. Our coconuts come from either Indonesia, Malaysia or The Philippines. We do not source coconuts from Thailand, in part because we cannot be sure that animals are not used in their harvesting.
