100+ years of coconut expertise
Kokonati Coconut amino sauce sales supports the traditional livelihoods of villagers in the rural coconut triangle of Sri Lanka. Coconut sap is harvested by traditional methods handed down by generations of toddy-tapping families. This traditional production allows village populations to utilize their age-old knowledge and expertise to survive in this modernized and mechanized world of manufacture by producing this 100% natural unrefined product. It is an intricate art; harvesting and extracting coconut sap. The toddy (cider) tapper families collect the natural sap every 12 hours and deliver it to our 125year old coconut vinegar and amino-making plant. This amino sauce is expertly aged over 8 to 12 months with the mother vinegar, nectar, and sea salt in seasoned vats and carefully preserved until it is ordered, bottled, and shipped to you with 100% of its natural healing potency. Our amino-maker is the fifth generation coconut-vinegar-maker of a proud lineage; his great grandfather, Charles supplied coconut vinegar as instant stamina and anti-bacterial fluid that helped heal wounded soldiers during World War One! He was even awarded the British Certificate of appreciation for his contribution. Backed by generations of coconut sap expertise, the mill is certified with ISO and Organic standards and plays a vital role in the employment, welfare, and wellbeing of the local village community. The children of our workforce are provided with school books and stationery for the entire school year. The mill also organizes religious and cultural events to inculcate a sense of belonging to a bigger cause, bringing a sense of pride and community to the villagers who are using age-old knowledge, treading lightly, and making a living for their families, sustainably.
