Our coconut come from small-scale coconut farms in beautiful Thailand, where the highest quality and most delicious coconuts are grown.

We use semi-mature coconuts that are full of flavour, rich in nutrients and have a mellow flavour.

After being hand-picked by farmers, our coconuts are cracked open and sliced into thin strips. We then add other ingredients to create the different flavors. Finally, the coconut pieces are slow dried in special ovens to lock in all nutrients and the satisfying crunch.

You can find our chips in selected stores at retailers nationwide. Check out our Where to Buy page to locate our chips in a store near you today.
