Alpha DME® Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
When we at Alpha Health met the founders of the DME® process, we knew we had met good people with a great plan to alleviate poverty and exploitation in the Solomon Islands. The DME Story shares what a day in the life of a DME owning community looks like, creating the world’s best coconut oil, and being paid fairly to do so. Seeing the difference that social initiatives like Fair Dinkum Fair Trade have on the people of the Solomon Islands, make it worthwhile to pay more for coconut oil. Alpha is no longer in the race to offering the lowest pricing on coconut oil, and we hope you get out too. Cheap coconut oil keeps farmers, pickers, factory workers and communities in abject poverty.
Our partners, Kokonut Pacific, created an excellent fair trade certification that reflected the unique needs of the communities in the Solomon Islands who make our DME Coconut Oil, and a second, well established third party certifier, FairTSA, guarantees you are using the fairest coconut oil in the world.
Fair Dinkum Fair Trade guarantees a fair price, long term contracts, and supporting the producers through business development coaching. Importantly, DME technology has allowed the communities making our coconut oil to walk away from the copra industry, thus increasing their income five-fold.
Please visit our amazing partners at Kokonut Pacific to learn more about how the DME Process is making beautiful, sustainable change.
Alpha Ziggy’s Dairy Free Drinking Chocolate
Our Ziggy’s Dairy Free Drinking Chocolate is certified by Fairtrade Canada, guaranteeing our cocoa is sourced ethically. Cocoa and chocolate products should be top of mind when purchasing fairtrade, where farmers and especially children need to be protected.
Alpha Organic Red Palm Oil
Alpha Organic Red Palm Oil is certified Palm Done Right™. This certification guarantees that our palm oil is sustainably sourced and fair-trade certified. Alpha Health is aware of the environmental devastation of Asian countries for palm oil, the near extinction of the rare and exquisite orangutan, and the choices forced upon poorer countries to harvest palm for their future. For these reasons, Alpha Health exclusively sources our Organic Red Palm Oil from Ecuador where there are no orangutans. It is made on small farms, from fresh ripe palm fruit (never the palm kernel), and fairly traded in a sustainable way.
