We created the Vita Coco Project to reinvest in our farming communities.
Our Mission: Raise 1 million people in coconut farming communities out of poverty.

Did you know...

The Philippines and Sri Lanka are two of the top five coconut producing regions in the world. However, both have some of the lowest yielding coconut trees. Interventions are needed to increase coconut production and incomes. This is achievable and could correspond to a 2x increase in farmer income.

We are working towards our mission in two ways.
