The Cocoland factory located in the coconut triangle of Sri Lanka began over 100 years ago, as a small oil mill using traditional methods to extract coconut oil for its surrounding villages. As Cocoland grew, so did the community around it with over 2,000 people being employed in the company, from workers at the factories to the farmers working on our plantations. The once small oil mill has now evolved into a state of the art facility, catering to leading brands & retailers around the world.
The core philosophy and values that lay at the heart of the company have remained the same since its inception. We operate under the core family values of Trust, Respect, Responsibility, Relationship, Discipline and Passion towards people and the planet, with the aim of fostering a greener planet with healthy people. The company also stays true to Sri Lanka’ s deep cultural heritage of over 2, 500 years through the incorporation of traditional Ayurvedic practices.
Early in NMK’s history, there was a pervasive myth being spread that coconut and coconut products were bad for you. People believed that coconut was bad for your heart and created an unhealthy rise in cholesterol. But Mr. Manjula Narayana knew that for generations, people in Sri Lanka have been using different forms of coconut in their food and had suffered no ill effects. In fact, they were much healthier than people are now.
The coconut tree is revered as sacred gift from mother-nature and we, at Nara Cocoland (Pvt) Ltd, bring to you all the goodness of coconut, through our brand Cocoland. This organic brand, believes in bringing you the essence of coconuts directly from the tree to your table, while preserving all its nutrients in every level of the process.
Our mission is to deliver high quality, organically prepared Super-food products, straight from tree to table, guided by the teachings of traditional Sri Lankan Ayurvedic principles of health and well-being, while maintaining our accountability to the environment and to society in general.
Our vision is to nurture a happy and healthy planet through responsible agriculture, making Super-food accessible to all.
