Living in Bali: I came across the traditional sweetener, ‘Gula Bali’ made from palm sugar that I thought could be the basis for alternative honey replacement my mother needed at the time, it has a sweet slightly burnt caramel tone, but was a great place to begin.
After tinkering for a few years,: I managed to perfect the sweetener to retain more nutrients, whilst remaining pure without reducing the sugar, infact it was going a step back from Gula Bali that would make this a more nutrient rich syrup than almost anything on the market with an amazing taste, just perfect as an everyday sweetener to replace honey or sugar.
Unopened Market: At the time is was not being sold in supermarkets across Europe, so I found this new sweetener to be so important in everyday I life it became my mission to bring it to the International market so that people would soon taste and understand that this is much more beneficial than the regular sweeteners that people were used to in the West.
Health & Research: We know that sweeteners are essential to everyday life and that choosing the right sweetener can have profound short and long term health effects.
From the research with UK Nutrient testings (ALS Labs UK) we have done, we found that our coconut nectar has superior health benefits to regular honey, refined sugar, agave and most other natural syrups.
Sustainable: We directly employ farmers from the community to work with us. I have always been a firm believer that wherever money is being made from, it is only right that a portion should be given back to protecting the land and the people where it was derived. We decided this would work best if a share of the profits would be returned to the same community that it was harvested from which spawned the idea for a program called ’10% Buy, Give, Build’ which is still under development and expect to have established founders by 2018.
