Good packaging set to boost domestic dwarf coconut market

Dwarf coconut can be manufactured into finished products, and this market is likely to thrive if the packaging is good.
Besides, raw materials produced from dwarf coconut can be used in making jelly and juice, but the distribution of finished products hasn’t yet been developed.
“Frankly saying, the finished product market hasn’t developed yet. Specifically, we need to make sure that the finished product manufacturing and distribution flourish by putting a lot of effort and time into it. Even ordinary coconut water has many consumers as it is believed to have health benefits. Farmers dare not grow much because the market has yet to develop here. If the market demand is high and if we are able to produce it in good packaging, the number of farmers will increase,” Ko Aung Thura, who tries to sell the dwarf coconut as a value-added product in the domestic market told The Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).
In previous months, dwarf coconuts grown in Myanmar were exported to Thailand in pieces, and currently, they are trying to develop a finished product market inside the country.
At present, dwarf coconut plants have been grown in Twantay, Taikkyi and Hlegu townships on trial. — Thit Taw/ZS
