The Coconut Company
Only the Good Stuff - simple, natural, vegan and organic products from the finest fresh coconuts
Founder Mike Pilgrim, a seasoned Telecom Executive originally from Farnham, moved to Asia in 1988. Giving up corporate life in 2003, Mike was approached by a retired Filipino Navy Officer with a business idea. Together they bought a 35 year old roll-on roll-off ferry called “The Odyssey” a cargo ship and, after a lot of hard work the island of Alabat started to prosper with the "new" transport link.
The Alabat mayor and his officials were so pleased with the results of the new transport link Mike was asked if he could find a use for the coconut husks that were the waste product from the islanders making coconut oil. It didn’t take long for Mike to realise that the palm trees throughout the islands could offer healthy food and drink products beyond coconut husks and oil, and so The Coconut Company was born.
