Nut Harvesting and Cold Pressing

Dilo Nuts DryingPure Fiji produces a variety of cold pressed nut oils that are pressed at source. 

This process leaves nothing to waste with the shells and pressed cake being milled into fertilizer.

The women within communities who harvest these nuts on isolated remote islands now benefit from a new source of income.

The use of these oils has also been revived and traditional healers in these villages are provided with oils to administer to those suffering from a whole range of skin ailments and rheumatism.

While the demand on this resource increases the nuts continue to be harvested sustainably from only those which drop to the ground. There is also a planting programme in place to ensure this threatened species has a bright future.
