Culture - Production

Wad’s coconut comes from Kwanyako, Gomoa Gyman in the central region and Ada in the greater Accra region and Krodua in the eastern region of Ghana

 

Coconut is a large palm, growing up to 30 m tall, with pinnate leaves 4–6 m long, and pinnae 60–90 cm long; old leaves break away cleanly, leaving the trunk smooth.

 

Coconut trees produce their first fruits between the sixth to eighth year of planting. From the tenth to seventh year each tree can produce between 60 to 180 nuts.

 

When the nuts arrive at full maturity they fall onto the soil. They are then collected. The husk is removed from the collected coconuts by the help of a machete. The nuts are then transported to Wad.

Transformation

We peel, cut and pack everything by hand for quality reasons and to check the exact condition of the fruit to be dried and the quality.

The fruit dryers we use meet the European food industry requirements.

We use solar energy in our production.
