Coconut Merchant hasn’t yet applied for Ethical Accreditation, but its high score would mean that if it did, it would be able to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark on its products.

We encourage other companies in the Ethical Sugar sector to follow Coconut Merchant’s example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

What does Coconut Merchant do?

Coconut Merchant claims to produce the world’s largest range of coconut products for both trade and individual customers.

In which areas does Coconut Merchant perform well?

Coconut Merchant performs well for GM as all of its products are non-GMO, and for Organic as its coconut sugar is certified by the Organic Food Federation.

We found no criticism relating to Nuclear, Fossil Fuels, Animal Welfare, Political Donations or Armaments, therefore Coconut Merchant scores well across these criteria. On top of this Coconut Merchant has been awarded with our Ethical Innovator criterion for its clear ethical vision. Find out more about our ethical criteria.

What can Coconut Merchant do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Coconut Merchant is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Sugar Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As Coconut Merchant already receives a top score in the Ethical Sugar sector, The Good Shopping Guide encourages it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After sending in its application, Coconut Merchant will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide ethical mark.

However we would encourage Coconut Merchant to improve on the detail in its Environmental Report, for which it currently receives only a middle rating, in order to improve its score for these criteria. If Coconut Merchant applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this.
