Surge in coconut oil exports from Samoa

An improved supply of copra has led to a surge in coconut oil exports by a major producer in Samoa.

In the latest trade figures from the Reserve Bank, the Pacific Coconut Oil Company had a 90 percent increase in exports in August.

The monthly trade was worth more than 600 thousand US dollars with the bulk going to Malaysia.

The company’s Samau Etuale Sefo says the company is now producing 200 tonnes of oil a week, double what it used to do.
