Exporting desiccated coconut to Europe
Coconut is a popular flavour in sweet treats like chocolate bars, pastries, cakes and cookies. This popularity is the main driver of a stable European demand for desiccated coconut. Maturing trees in main supplying destinations, as well as the COVID-19 crisis, have led to unstable supplies, causing many supply chain stakeholders to increase their focus on sustainability and take part in sector support projects. You can find opportunities in large markets, such as the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom. Emerging suppliers must be able to compete with already established suppliers from the Philippines, Indonesia and Sri Lanka.
