The Coconut Industry Board is a statutory body established by the Coconut Industry Control Act of 1945. It is responsible for monitoring and informing the Government of Jamaica of the state of the coconut industry; advising growers of agronomic best practices and providing quality planting materials.
In 1930, a group of growers formed the Jamaica Coconut Producers Association Ltd, a cooperative marketing organisation which used its members' coconuts to produce copra, oil and, beginning in 1937, soaps. Other coconut-processing factories were established, and there was competition.
The Coconut Board aims to engage 2,000 new small farmers, medium-sized growers and local and overseas investors, as a way to boost crop acreages. Its strategic focus "is to position Jamaica as the leader in coconut seedlings, coconut production and value-added coconut products in the Caribbean", the board said.
