Is Coconut Oil Supreme™ Organic?

Coconut Oil Supreme™ is produced from coconuts grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or any other practices which would affect its organic status. Since we began offering this premium oil in 2001 we have described it as organic, but not "certified organic." We could supply Coconut Oil Supreme™ in a "certified organic" version at a considerably higher cost but since most of our customers are interested in purchasing the highest quality oil at the best price, we have opted not to go that route.

In April of 2006 we received a letter from USDA stating that they had received a "consumer" complaint about the organic status of our oil. We were informed that we could not describe the oil as organic unless it was repackaged in a "certified" facility. This would result in an additional cost to our customers without any additional benefit.

The "organic" coconut oil claim has been used as a promotional tool by many companies who describe their oil as organic to imply that it is somehow different or better than other oils. The "organic" label appears to reflect a marketing strategy rather than a difference in the product. Many times we assume that if a product is labeled as organic it is inherently better than one without the "organic" label. Were it not for this assumption, we would not be willing to pay the generally higher "organic" price. In the case of coconut oil, the organic label doesn't appear to mean a whole lot. The following statement provides some clarification of this issue:

In ordinary practice, coconut farming is 'naturally' organic. It is unlike industrial farming of annual crops with its particular orientation toward intensive production and heavy use of chemical fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides. Coconut growing remains a domain of small farmers who operate with an average of 3 hectares per farmer. A result of this difference in orientation is that chemical usage is seldom practiced. Organic certification agencies do not distinguish between copra and non-copra oils (and they do allow for solvent use under certification rules). "Organic" coconut oil is promoted as more 'natural' when in fact, the vast majority of "organic" coconut oil is copra based and would not qualify as "natural" oil in coconut growing countries.

A number of customers have reported requesting copies of the organic certifications advertised by other suppliers, only to have their requests ignored. I noticed an ad by one company in the Philippines which claims to be a USDA certified producer of coconut oil. The USDA is not a certifying agency and thus could not "certify" them as an organic producer. This is another case of caveat emptor, (let the buyer beware). It is easy to claim anything; having it be true is another matter.

For customers who are interested in purchasing certified organic virgin coconut oil for use in the manufacture of another product which they plan to have certified as organic, we are happy to quote pricing for certified organic Coconut Oil Supreme™ packed in 180 kg drums. Since we would not be repacking the oil the factory certification would remain intact.

I'm back to buying the best! I tried another brand coconut oil brand claiming to be "virgin" and highest quality - it was TERRIBLE & tasted like soap!! I forced myself to choke down 16oz before relegating the rest to cooking oil status. Just *thinking* about making my morning "butter coffee" with your sweet coconut oil supreme again makes me feel happy! Though I thought to save $, it ended up being a costly mistake & hard-to-swallow lesson! C.B.

Bought several coconut oils from health food stores. Although they were organic, the smell and taste were awful and had to throw them out. When I saw the sample size of coconut supreme I thought it was perfect to try first before spending money on a product I wasn't sure of. (customer who first bought sample.) M.S.

I am a nurse, I had a patient a few nights ago who let me use some of her coconut oil supreme after I commented on how nice her lotion smelled. She wanted me to get an extra medication cup and fill it with a few scoops to take home and try. I love how it moisturizes my over dry over washed nursing hands. I am going to try it in my dog's food also, he is always itchy. I will let you know! I am also purchasing a jar for my mother who has a lot of allergies to products. Thanks!! A.D.

My husband and I love this product! We've tried other coconut oils and none of them match the quality and taste. We also love that it is available in such a large quantity! S.S.

I am ordering these two samples and having them sent to one of my dearest friends because I want her to try these two products. I have become a walking 'advertisement' for Coconut Oil Supreme!! ... I am a repeat customer because I love, love, love your products! D. W.

This is my second order. Yours is the first Coconut Oil I have tried, but I can't imagine any other company's product being better. Your Cococnut Oil Supreme has such a delicate flavor. I use it now also as a skin moisturizer and have fallen in love with it's ultra-light fragrance. Wish I had discovered your company sooner! Linda D.

You offer the best selection with the highest quality. I love this company ...I've been a long time customer and absolutely love your products. I highly recommend to anyone who asks. You're the best out there. For me quality far exceeds the cost! S.N.

You carry the absolute best coconut based products available, and your coconut oil is head and shoulders better than any other oil available. S.J.

Thanks for your good work in making this good oil available online... I luv the coconut oil from your store -- its clarity and and smooth consistency (almost like water), fresh natural taste and mild fragrance, and quality is the best one I've found... it's the best of the best!! A regular / longtime customer now, Sharon S.

Just wanted to say I love your coconut oil. I have been trying several brands and I bought a small quantity from each. I noticed how crystal clear your oil is when it's in its melted state. The other oils were yellow, cloudy or just disgusting looking. Thanks for a great product and will be ordering again soon. M.S.

You have the most delicious tasting coconut oil I have ever tasted. I tried 5 different brands. You're the best!

Fabulous product - much better flavor than other oil available.

Now I know what real coconut oil should taste like.

Thank you for being a great source for the best oil on earth!

Thank you for your great product and wonderful service.

Tried them all and yours is the best.
