Our fascination is our vision, which has become the story of Lionheart. The sap harvested from the Coconut Flower is full of energy and nutrients; this raw material is the foundation of our products - from traditional coconut sugar to delicious syrup or nectar and savory coconut amino seasoning or vinegar.
In 2016 we planted our first coconut palms in Rizal, Palawan at the foot of Mount Mantalingahan facing the West Philippine Sea. Our vision to integrate all elements from the soil to the finished products has been realized in the sustainable way. Building from the ground up, gave us opportunity to do things - the Lionheart way! Adopting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we make impact and we do this in many ways. Recently Palawan Council for Sustainable Development completed UN Sustainable Assessment for Food and Agriculture recognized Lionheart Farms with a score of 4.79 out of 5.
Our Three Principles
Understanding the Underlying Fundamentals of Lionheart Farms
Knowing our products are pure from nature with only natural organic inputs to the soil. Harvested with love using ancient techniques and carefully processed without any additives and to preserve the integrity of the raw sap from nature in the most modern facility.
In all aspects from our agricultural practices working towards net positive contribution to biodiversity to working in partnership with the local community of the Indigenous Peoples of Palawan, observing their cultural diversity and dialogue based on their tribal principles to resolve conflicts or for planning our contributions to their community development.
Knowing we managed every step in the life of the product working to the highest standards of Organic certification in the farm and factory compliant with all certifications for Good Manufacturing Practices with BRC, SMETA, Halaal and Kosher.
Our Three Steps
In the nursery we cultivate our own coconut palms from seednut to seedling, ensuring they get the best possible start to life. Then after planting them in the farm, we nurture them to a mature and harvestable state with our in-house produced bio-organic fertilisers.
With photosynthesis helping us convert sunlight into chemical energy, we harvest it in the form of sap directly from the coconut palms flower. Using heritage tapping techniques practiced throughout South-East Asia, we are able to organically extract pure coconut flower sap of the highest quality and full of natural sugar.
Coconut flower sap is a very versatile raw material and can be processed into a wide range of products. At our processing facility located next to the farm we produce coconut aminos, sugar, syrup and vinegar. But because of the span of flavors, colors and textures coconut flower sap possesses we are not limited to these products. Alcohols, beverages and even personal care products are also possible.

How it feels working with us?
It is the people which makes this noble work possible. We all embrace the vision and mission of Lionheart.
Quality Assurance Officer
Lionheart continuously gives me an extraordinary opportunity, from the moment I started up to now it never seizes to teach me various lessons. It helps me to develop a sense of responsibility, cooperate with other employees for the best, and the ability to handle the assigned tasks. I am grateful with my Manager and QA Team for the trust and for pushing me to become the person that I am right now.
Being an IT Officer, it’s a challenge for me to fix problems like Internet Connection and Computer Troubleshooting, but because of my co-employees they believed in my skill and talent I can easily think of a solution to fix the problems. I can do impossible things with them. I am so happy to be part of the LIONHEART Family. I just dreamt to stay here in the long run and be a part of the success of LIONHEART. I am always here to support the mission and vision of the company to help the Rizalian communities.
Factory Laboratory Technician
Working with Lionheart is a whole new experience. Since it is my first time working in a food industry, I needed to learn a lot of things, blessedly, I am involved in a community that helps me grow day by day. My direct mentor, Sir Rey and my partner in job, Nikki, are both kind and patient in teaching me of the things I needed to know in order to be effective in my job. At first I thought that my Bachelors degree will not be of use in this line of work, but as time passes by, I am learning more and more the application of chemistry in food industry and in my job. Being in Quality Assurance is by far the nearest job I had that is closest to my degree and I will forever be grateful to Lionheart for giving me this oppurtunity. Thank you. ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ♡
Being a part of this fast growing company is an opportunity for me and the community as it promotes continuous learning from the professionals, whom I consider as Mentors, more than willing to share their knowledge and ideas. As a Safety Officer, working with our brothers and sisters from the IP community is challenging and yet very inspiring given that the company has a full commitment to provide them healthy, safe and clean working environment.
In Lionheart Farms, I get to pursue my passion with a very dynamic work environment. Prior becoming the LH Nurse, I used to go on an 8-hour duty in just one location, but now it was so interactive, I meet people from different walks of life, it is so fulfilling to care for the Indigenous colleagues of the company. I can imagine working at the mountains in the morning then reporting to the Hub in the afternoon. Considering how remote our location is versus my previous job... What great facilities we have here! I love working with LH!
This opportunity given by Lionheart to me and the rest of the Indigenous People Community is one in a million and is really worth all the hard work. Having a key role as the company's Lead Cashier, I am more than proud that we truly belong in this feat of uplifting the IPs of South Palawan. Currently, I am working with my sister under the same department which makes this work more fun.
I am more than happy working with Lionheart. I have been with the company for years now. Lionheart provided job opportunities to the people of the 11 barangays of Rizal Municipality inspite of the pandemic this year. No need of going to other provinces to find work.
