Coconut industry newcomer leads the way in sustainability
ATLANTA, June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Apex, the India-based coconut processing company, launches today as the industry leader in sustainability and innovation with the introduction of 12 premium coconut-based products manufactured from its zero-waste processing facility.
'Our vision is to create high-quality products using sustainable processes that actually give back to the plant, the people, and the planet,' said Apex Managing Director Ramu Muthusamy. 'We call it the Give Back Lifecycle Test, and the coconut passes the test with flying colors.'
Each Apex coconut product, from coconut water to coconut shell charcoal, is processed and packaged under one roof at their state-of-the-art facility located in Tamil Nadu in the heart of India's coconut farming region. The processing plant itself is a testament to the Apex Give Back Lifecycle model. Powered by solar energy, the cutting-edge facility is the first coconut processing facility to implement an end-to-end water recycling initiative that is completely chemical-free.
Each Apex product starts with fresh coconuts ethically sourced from Indian farmers. Apex is committed to empowering its farmers through educational programs, improvement to their standard of living, and environmental protection. 'We've found that our relentless commitment to sustainability, innovation, and our farmers has ultimately led to better, cleaner, healthier coconut products that people love,' Muthusamy said.
Apex uses proprietary technology to rigorously track and trace each coconut from its original source through storage, processing, and packaging. Each step of the process is strictly controlled to eliminate outside interference, ensuring unprecedented quality, safety, and consistency of the final product. Because every part of the coconut is utilized to create a unique Apex product, none of the raw material goes to waste.
Apex offers 7 premium coconut-based food products including coconut water, coconut skimmed milk, extra virgin coconut oil, virgin coconut oil, desiccated coconut, low-fat desiccated coconut, and coconut flour. Apex leads the industry in innovative non-food products including GoPost3, a composting medium that creates odor-free compost faster than traditional composting methods, as well as coir pith growing medium, coir wood, coir fiber, and coconut shell charcoal.
The Apex product portfolio is available for customizable business solutions, including bulk packaging, retail services, food industry options, and private label.
