Exportable Part of Coconut

Exportable Part of Coconut

Indonesia is one of the coconut-producing and exporting countries in the world. Of the total world coconut export value in 2019 which was US$ 11.6 billion, Indonesia controlled US$ 2.17 billion. However, this value is relatively small when compared to the potential that has not been managed optimally.

The most important reason why coconut has great potential for export is that the benefits of the coconut plant do not only lie in the flesh of the fruit which can be processed into coconut milk, copra, and coconut oil. However, all parts of the coconut plant can be processed for various purposes.

Example of Exportable Coconut Parts

Coconut is a plant that produces many parts that can be used as raw materials to be processed into processed products that have high economic value.

What can be exported from Coconut? Here are some parts of coconut that can be exported:

1. Coconut Leaves

The young leaves can be used for wrapping ketupat and raw materials for traditional medicine. Old leaves can be woven and used as a roof, then the sticks are used as material for broomsticks for handicrafts.

2. Coconut Stem

3. Coconut Root

This can even be processed into copra (coconut oil) which is further processed into cooking oil, soap, candles, ice cream, and raw materials for oleochemical products such as fatty acids, fatty alcohols, and glycerin. Not only that, coconut dregs or coconut cake can be used as animal feed ingredients.

With so many parts of the coconut that can be exported, coconut is one of the most beneficial plants for humans. Besides being a source of food, coconut can also be a promising source of income for farmers or entrepreneurs who use it.

Thus the discussion of parts of coconut that can be exported. But keep in mind, that not all parts of this coconut have the potential to be exported. This is because the amount of consumption is already very high for some coconut products, especially for cooking ingredients. We need to see what parts of coconut have excess capacity and high appreciation value in the export market.
