Our first plantation will yield 18 million coconuts annually, enabling us to generate multiple revenue streams in the food, health, and automotive industries.
Kokonut V1 is Operated by “Comunidad Agrícola RD, S.R.L”
Description & Scope
This project will benefit the entire society of the Municipality of Las Salinas, Barahona Province, Dominican Republic. The coconut plants will be planted 7.5 x 7.5 meters apart, equating to ninety-six (96) plants per acre of land, or 60,000 plants across the six hundred and twenty (620) Acres of land. This variety of coconut yields approximately three hundred (300) fruits per plant, resulting in an annual yield of 18,000,000 units. The Kokonut DAO treasury will receive 100% of the profits.
The organization seeks to create 10,663 direct and indirect jobs through investments in this project. These jobs will focus on essential agricultural tasks such as weeding, applying pesticides and fertilizers, irrigation, and harvesting.
Problem & Solution
Irrational land management is causing deforestation, endangering all the surrounding flora and fauna. There is a lack of jobs and opportunities in the municipality, high poverty levels, and low educational attainment.
Concerning the coconut market, there is a high demand in both national and international markets, yet annual domestic production fails to meet this demand.
Blockchain open data and protocols can benefit DAO members, farmers, and partners by facilitating fundraising and coordination. We also monitor fauna and flora, including endangered species.
We create job opportunities and improve quality of life. Incorporating 620 acres of land in optimal conditions into the national production system can increase annual production and reduce demand.
Kokonut V1 was designed to generate three sources of income from coconuts. The first source of income was from the sale of coconuts and coconut products such as coconut milk, coconut oil, and coconut flakes. The second was from the sale of coconut husks, which could be used to make furniture, baskets, and other items. The third source of income was from the sale of coconut shells, which could be used to make decorations, jewelry, and other items. Kokonut V1 was designed to be a sustainable and profitable business model, utilizing all the parts of the coconut to generate income.
Coconut Net Sales
Our V1 Plantation consists of 60,000 coconut plants, producing roughly 18 million coconuts annually. The average local wholesale price of $0.45 translates to $8.1 million per year. We are already working on connecting with transnational buyers to export our product and increase revenue.
Coconuts are one of the most versatile fruits. They can be used to make coconut milk, oil, body cream, water, and many other products. This makes them highly valuable in the agricultural sector.
Industrialized Coconut Products
We will produce and sell coconuts, as well as create products such as coconut milk, water, pulp, and cosmetics for both retail and wholesale markets.
