Petrow Food Group process desiccated coconut at our BRC accredited modern plant in Haverhill, Suffolk.
These Coconut products are mainly sourced from the Philippines, Indonesia and Sri Lanka from our approved mills and thoroughly inspected and tested on intake to ensure the finest product quality and food safety.
Many factors affect the sourcing, quality and price of the coconut. These can be weather events such as typhoons, other natural disasters, currency fluctuations or geopolitical factors. We can advise our customers on the current market, future risk considerations and the crop cycles of the various origins so together we can decide when is the best time to buy coconut products and cover forward requirements.
The Coconut tree is a member of the palm tree family and is known for its versatility of uses, from food to cosmetics. The coconut can be processed for oil or coconut milk/cream & water or the flesh can be dried and used as desiccated coconut (DC).
Coconut trees like sandy soil and thrive in sunny areas with abundant rainfall and have spread widely across the globe from the ancestral population in the Philippines. Other main producing and exporting countries are Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Vietnam. The coconut palms do not have the seasonality associated with fruits and nuts and are continuously produced throughout the year, but with a few months of lean season where less flesh is produced in the mature coconuts.
We commonly sell the raw materials we use for processing these coconut products as imported origin bulk packs.Raw Ingredients
