Philippine organic coconut products are now available in top online retail stores in Russia, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) reported.


In a statement Wednesday, the DTI said that Philippine organic coconut products are picking up steam in the Russian market because of their pure taste and absence of unhealthy additives.

 “Finally, a wider range of Philippine-branded organic coconut food products are now being sold and made available to mainstream consumers in Russia through their online stores. With this development, Russians can have a taste of our quality world-class food products,” DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez said.

The DTI said that  Coco Daily organic coconut milk was made available in the Russian market earlier this year.

Now, a wider range of organic coconut products are available in the Russian market such as refined coconut oil, organic refined coconut oil, organic coconut sauce aminos, organic coconut sauce balsamic, organic coconut syrup, organic coconut vinegar, organic coconut sugar, organic coconut sauce with vinegar, organic coconut jam, and coconut jam with cacao, it added.

The DTI said coconut jam is completely new for the Russian market and it is gaining more popularity among local buyers.

 “Having our products available in Russia is a testament that despite the pandemic, our Philippine exporters can and have the capability not only to continue our trade exports in the global market but forge new partnerships with buyers and importers in new markets,” Lopez said.
