Who we are
Mundial de Coco is a private company, owned by US and Italian shareholders with a long experience in the agricultural, gardening and floricultural industry.
Since 1996, Mundial de Coco has an processing factory located in the Dominican Republic, specializing in harvesting and processing the shell of the coconut. Our production site is located in the northern part of the island, in the district Maria Trinidad Sanchez, 10 miles form Nagua. The concept from which we started is based on a fully automated process devoted to the production of coir and fibre pith. With it's 150.000 square meters of Special Free Zone land, 4.000 covered, with it's production capacity of 1.500 Tons a month, Mundial de Coco is the first and the biggest company located in the Caribbean and American area devoted to coconut shell based products.
Unique and fully certified global quality
Thanks to its important natural chemical physical qualities and its high degree of Eco-compatibility, coconut today represents the most valid alternative in the organic substrate sector. It's for this reason that coconut has an excellent standing, and it's use as a cultivation substrate material is in continuous expansion. In the light of its spontaneous success, all the coconut producers (Sri Lanka, India, etc.) have so far limited themselves to only partially exploiting the enormous potential of this material.
Usually, The raw material used from the production facilities located in the far east, is the scrap generated from other kinds of processing (fibre extraction): the production processes are very simple, involving only the compression of the material, therefore (for transportation economy) quality controls are practically non existent and only concern the matter of salinity; furthermore a single product is offered meaning that the standard features are more or less the same for all producers.
Thanks to its long experience in the field and its direct understanding of the problems relating to this material, Mundial de Coco has developed it's project in the Dominican Republic.
Starting from a totally different point of view as regards the material and production methods involved in its processing, Mundial has reached three primary objectives:
- the creation of a complete range of product based on coconut fibres and pith which, starting from the different raw materials and by using industrial kinds of production processes, is able to enhance the natural qualities of this material with important quality features thereby making it superior to any other kinds of substrata of organic origin
- the creation of a trace ability procedure relative to the actual history of the product, thereby making total quality certification possible.
- The ability to diversify the production meeting specific customer's requirements.
