COCAVO ORGANIC OIL PRODUCTS A HIT IN UNITED STATESThursday, October 5, 2017
Cocavo’s coconut and avocado oil products are getting noticed in New Zealand and proving a hit in the US, says chief executive Chris Nathan. Its main product Cocavo is made from a combination of organic coconut and avocado oils which was designed to be the ultimate cooking oil, Mr. Nathan said. Apart from being lower in saturated fat than regular coconut oil, it has the health benefits of avocado oil, plus all the high heat cooking qualities of both oils.
Mr. Nathan said he assists new coconut oil processors to improved their extraction techniques to guarantee Cocavo oil at the quality it requires. Its parent company, Evco International, is hoping to build its own coconut oil plant in Fiji to meet demand. “The Fiji plant is still on the cards but raising enough (capital) to build it is an ongoing job,” he said.
