The Coconut, rich in protein has long been a staple of Philippine cooking. The Philippines is the second largest producer of Coconuts in the World. Coconuts account for over 25% of agricultural produce in the Philippines. The Coconut Tree is often referred to as the Tree of Life because of the endless list of products and by-products derived from it, such as its meat, oil, shell and trunk. Over the last several years Coconut products such as Coconut Milk, Coconut Oil, Coconut Flour and Coconut Water have become very popular in North America and Europe. Mainly due to the health benefits associated with Coconuts and Coconut by-products such as it being high in dietary fiber and its low glycemic index.
This has lead many manufacturers of Coconut Products in the Philippines to seek Kosher Certification. Recently Andy Albao Enterprises a leading Coconut producer in the Philippines achieved Kosher Certification through Kosher Check. Andy Albao Enterprises commenced operations in 2007. Recently Andy Albao Enterprises expanded their processing facility in the Philippines and immediately decided to gain Kosher Certification through Kosher Check, in order to meet customer demands.
