Transform your desserts with our range of coconut oils, bringing simple recipes to life.

It is the perfect alternative for butter in many recipes, usually a healthier and tastier option, and can be used in all types of cooking, especially frying, baking, and sautéing.

Considered by many nutritionists to be a “superfood”, coconut oil is not only delicious to cook with, but comes with a wide range of health benefits.

Natural Liquid Coconut Oil was the first of its kind in the world, with a handy “pop up” pour nozzle attached to the bottle capturing all the nutritional goodness from coconuts in a convenient liquid form.
