 This sector has a huge potential due to the many sectors that it covers with the an increasing use not just as fuel, medicinal and health, dental sector for toothpaste and oral hygiene, body scrub and facial skincare. The growing popular in USA and Europe boosted through lifestyle published media, has highlighted an interest into further exploration on the range of uses and products, that the coconut can be utilised for and is helping to open up market opportunities.

In an upcoming CocoLink conference scheduled for July 27th over three days in The Philippines this will be an area to be discussed and examined. See extract below.

The DTI executive said there is also a huge market for coconut by-products such as activated carbon, which Filipino producers have yet to fully tap. “We have not exploited the market for activated carbon, which is very huge,” he said, noting that the product is now being used as an additive in other processed products like toothpaste and soap.

Activated carbon, produced from coconut shells, has been popularly used as a water filter. “Dati rati activated carbon parang uling lang pero, kung tama nating gagawin, napakalaking market natin dyan (It used to be that activated carbon was simply seen as a form of charcoal product, but if we do it right, there is a big market for it,” Mr. Perlada said. Apart from activated carbon, Mr. Perlada said they are also setting sights on coco feed, coco coir and non-food applications.
