The market study takes a critical look at various possibilities and prospects for Pacific Island coconut producers in non-traditional products such as virgin coconut oil (VCO), coconut water, coconut cream products and coconut timber.

This market study was supported by the Coconut Industry Development for the Pacific (CIDP) project, a Euro 4 million (FJD 9.3 million) joint initiative of the European Union, the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) and the Pacific Community (SPC).

Covering four broad markets and core value chains for coconut products, the report was researched and drafted by Dr Andrew McGregor and Mark Sheedy of the Pacific Island Farmers’ Organisation Network (PIFON). The report investigates vital vegetable oil market developments in the international arena within the past two decades; as well as coconut oil and copra as global trade commodities.
