Copra

Copra is the dried meat or kernal obtained from coconuts split into two parts and dried by sun or hot air or smoke dried. The name derives from khopra, the Hindi word for coconut. Copra is the commercial form of coconut from which coconut oil is extracted by boiling and pressing. It was developed as a commercial product by merchants in the South Seas and South Asia in the 1860s. Making copra-removing the shell, breaking up, drying-is done where the palms grow. Copra shall be in sound merchantable condition, well dried & reasonably firm.
