Aliet Green is the first and yet only Indonesian enterprise winning the Certificate of Taste and Quality of the International Taste & Quality Institute (iTQi) in Brussels, Belgium.
Aliet Green received the 2017 Superior Taste Award from iTQi with 3 Golden Stars in the prestigious Cercle Royal Gaulois in Brussels. The 3 Golden Stars Award was granted for Aliet Green’s Organic Coconut Sugar Powder.
Coconut Sugar (or: coconut blossom sugar) is made of the sugary sap of coconut blossom buds dripping after incision. It is an absolute green and sustainable sweetener produced by evaporating the water from coconut blossom sap. Male farmers climb up their coconut trees at least 20 to 25 meters twice a day to harvest the sap. The farmers also have to make sure their – certified – tress are in optimum condition to produce the best quality sap.
“The harvesting and production process is very labor-intensive”, explains Lastiana Yuliandari, CEO and driving force of Aliet Green, a women-owned social enterprise established in July 2009. “We combine traditional methods with innovative state of art production and processing techniques to make these exceptional products available to the world. By so-doing, we are able to contribute to the development of the rural communities we work with. Aliet Green has an extensive Fair Trade program for investments to improve the quality of life in the area and the well being of our local communities.”
The Kokomel Organic Coconut Sugar Powder of Yogyakarta based Aliet Green obtained the 3 Golden Stars Award with a final score of 90.3% of the total marks. This innovative, alternative sweetener with a flour-like and velvety mouth-feel is the result of years of product research and development to create a sweetener for a broad range of applications in baking, chocolate preparations and drinks and a long shelf life.
Collected Products are blind tested by an exceptional jury of 135 Chefs and Sommeliers from all around Europe on first impression, appearance, smell, texture, taste and aftertaste without packaging and without any identification.
No wonder Aliet Green received this remarkable award for its outstanding performance in keeping the quality integrity up to the top level for its Organic Coconut Sugar Powder.
