Aliet Green (Indonesia) is the runner-up with Organic Coconut Sugar for Sustainable Ingredient Award.
Certified Organic and Fair Trade Organic Coconut Sugar helps empower female growers and creates female employment for sustainable Coconut Sugar production in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
Organic Coconut Sugar is a humble sweetener found in almost every household in Indonesia for centuries and almost all around the world nowadays.
Coconut palms are a tree crop that benefits the environment ecologically. Their cultivation restores damaged soil requiring very little water in the process. As a result, coconut sugar production has minimal effects on the environment compared to sugar cane production, which requires a considerable amount of resources.
