Founded in 1980, Hearty Naturals is a family business that manufactures and distributes premium USDA Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and other Coconut products. Using traditional methods of oil extraction and the freshest coconuts, our company is dedicated to providing customers the highest quality coconut oil possible. Because of our commitment to the preservation of fragile coconut plantation ecosystems, we support sustainable agricultural practices as well.
Our farmers and customers are our most important stakeholders and the lifeline of our business. Hearty Naturals is committed to educating consumers about the many benefits of coconut oil, and we are also committed to ethical business practices. That is why we purchase our coconuts from a carefully selected group of farmers who are just as passionate about natural, organic foods as we are. Every coconut we purchase is evaluated for freshness, taste, appearance, and nutritional value, ensuring that the oil we derive from these coconuts will be the highest quality possible.
At Hearty Naturals, our passion for organic coconut oil allows us to provide our customers with the freshest, most delicious coconut oil on the market. Our organic coconut oil is handmade with the utmost care, using an extraction method that involves a temperature-controlled process which preserves the life-essential fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, and enzymes naturally found in coconuts.
We craft our coconut oil in our family-owned traditional oil mill in Sri Lanka, where coconut oil is produced in small batches. This allows us to ensure the highest quality standards are met in each step of the oil extraction process so that we are able to preserve the natural goodness of this miracle oil.
Inhabitants of Sri Lanka have been consuming coconut oil as part of their daily diet for thousands of years, and we believe that this ancient island tradition has allowed Sri Lankans to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Sri Lanka’s tropical island climate offers the ideal growing conditions for the most flavorful and nutritious coconuts. The flavor and aroma of the virgin coconut oil extracted from these fresh coconuts is evident in Hearty Naturals’ organic coconut oil products.
Coconut trees are found across much of the tropical and sub-tropical areas in the world. A coconut is the largest known seed found in the plant world. Once a coconut falls from the tree, it takes about three years for the coconut seed to take root and sprout into a young tree. The origins of the coconuts have been lost to history. The scientists believe it originated from the Indian Archipelago or Polynesia. In addition to oil, other useful products derived from the coconut tree include toddy, coconut sugar, coconut water, coconut wood, palm cabbage, and other construction materials.
