Monkey Free Certification
The Thailand Department of Agriculture (DOA) has begun issuing “GAP Monkey Free Plus” certificates to select coconut farmers in Thailand. These farms and their harvests have been inspected by the DOA and confirmed to be free of any monkey labor. The certificate confirms that NO monkeys were used during the coconut collection process in Edward & Sons Thai coconut products.
Please view our certification below along with an open message from our founder and a press release regarding monkey labor.
