The season of PDO Coco de Paimpol has just started and should last until the beginning of November. “Volumes will probably increase from next week. Then, we will have the production peaks around September 15th and October 10th, although there are still uncertainties due to the weather forecast,” explains Pierre Gélébart, product manager Coco de Paimpol at Prince de Bretagne.
Coco de Paimpol is marketed in bags of 8kg, 5kg and nets of 1kg. “1kg of fresh Coco gives approximately 400/450g of beans. The Armor producers also offer bags of Coco beans of 1kg and 450g, ideal for restaurants, collectivities or the supermarket’s frozen aisles. Coco de Paimpol is a fresh legume that provides all the benefits without the need for soaking.” For the consumers that are in a hurry, Prince de Bretagne also offers trays of Coco de Paimpol beans. “The already shelled beans are a simple, practical and quick solution for consumers who do not have time to spend shelling beans.”
Note that Coco de Paimpol beans can easily be frozen and therefore consumed all year round, retaining all their taste qualities.
