World Coconut Day - 02 September.

World Coconut Day on September 2nd recognizes the flavorful and aromatic nutrition the coconut brings to many products.

Biologically, the coconut is a seed, nut, and fruit all in one package. However, the term for a one-seeded fruit (nut) is “drupe.” Every part of the coconut is sourced from the water inside the shell to the outer husk. Its oil moisturizes our skin and improves the flavor of our food. The nutrient-rich ingredient is one superfood!

The coconut is full of anti-viral and anti-microbial properties. This nutrient-rich seed provides fiber, Vitamin B6, iron, and minerals.

Grown in tropical areas, the coconut also brings to mind yummy tropical drinks like the pina colada. We can use coconut milk to make ice cream, sauces, and soups.

The Asia Pacific Coconut Community(APCC) was established on 2nd September 1969. In 2009 Asia Pacific Coconut Community announced that, the first world coconut day was celebrated on September 2, 2009, by the Asia Pacific Coconut Community (APCC). Since then, every year under the APCC by the authority of UN-ESCAP (United Nations’ economic and social commission for the Asia Pacific), this day is organised to highlight their policies and mark the course of action for promoting this tropical fruit and bringing awareness regarding its health benefits.

The International Coconut Community selects the World Coconut Day themes. The World Coconut Day theme for this 2022 year is “Growing Coconut for a Better Future and Life”.
