The inspiration behind Niulife
Niulife is about the double win of empowering remote coconut-producing communities, and consumers who have dietary needs and benefit from healthy products that taste great. This came about a desire to provide some of the poorest subsistence communities [who had access to coconuts] with opportunities to sell value-added products, instead of low-cost commodities, through Fair Trade systems. Niulife was created as a “for purpose” business, with 100% of profits donated to the Niulife Foundation running the VillageForLife™ program, which focuses on the non-commercial aspects of the coconut-producer communities, such as health & sanitation, environmental protection (eg: invasive species management), etc. Niulife finds its purpose in help equip communities living in remote villages to set up their own independent, sustainable & vibrant local economies.
How did Niulife Begin?
The company began over 30 years ago when Dr Dan Erthington, an agricultural development economist visited the Solomon Islands, he was shocked by the contrast of the productivity of coconut palms and the poverty of the people who grew them. He wanted to help these people to help themselves. He then developed the DME (Direct Micro Expelling) technology. Which is a gender-neutral Coconut Oil hand-press that enables anyone, even people with disabilities to extract Extra Virgin Coconut Oil at the source. It enables local communities to generate a good income by having a village based small business where they produce extra virgin coconut oil without the need to leave their family or village.
