Interview with Ricky Santos, President of NUCO
LCG Foods sat down with NUCO's President, Ricky Santos, and asked him some questions to better understand the brand's vision, core values, and other topics that we thought potential retail partners would want to know.
What motivated you to start your company and create the products that we see today?
NUCO was born out of the desire to give back and help Filipino coconut farmers, so we created high-quality, premium coconut based products that would provide more opportunities for farmers, giving them greater success and a better quality of life.
What are your company’s core values?
We are committed to giving back to coconut farmers and contributing to their communities, while also preserving the environment.
We use only sustainably and ethically sourced, natural and organic ingredients. We are driven to create and manufacture high-quality, all-natural, nutritious products for consumers.

b. NUCO believes in the health benefits of the coconut, and strives to produce innovative, coconut- based products
c. NUCO has created a strong, personal bond with the Filipino community.
What are some of the challenges that you’ve overcome to bring your business to its current state?
One challenge all new products face is educating and informing consumers about the value of the product and why investing in quality foods made from natural ingredients is well worth it for their health and the health of their families.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
