The Cocolicious brand of Virgin Coconut Oil products was developed by the founders of Organix Solutions Inc. based in Maguindanao, Philippines. It was inspired by the promising results in 1999 of the research done by Dr Conrado Dayrit, and Mr Jose Eleazar Jr of PCRDF in San Lazaro Hospital in the Philippines where coconut oil was given to AIDS patients which lowered their HIV count significantly. The first batch of Cocolicious VCO was produced in 2005 when VCO was still in its infancy stage in the market. At present, Cocolicious is considered the best tasting VCO where consumers enjoy the health and wellness benefits of virgin coconut oil as a whole functional food.
Partnering and uplifiting Indigenous community stakeholders
The producers of Cocolicious operate a socio-economic enterprise in Central Mindanao located, one of the poorest regions in the Philippines. It has uplifited the lives of the communities who are stakeholders in the production. They are farmers, production workers, office and logistics personnel. They have been trained under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and 5S standards to attain and sustain world class quality for Cocolicious.
Cocolicious Virgin Coconut Oil is produced from fresh coconuts harvested from coconut farms in pristine coastal areas in the Moro Gulf in Southern Philippines. The company producing it closely handles sourcing from coconut farmers, processing the VCO, down to delivering to its retail channels with no middleman!
