What’s your favorite thing about coconut/the coconut industry?
Knowing that the Coconut is the “Fruit of Life”, the entire coconut is utilized; meat, water, husks.
What your vision for the coconut category?
Looking for new applications to utilize the coconut, from Coconut Water as a base for sports beverages because of the electrolytes, to Coconut Sugar as a substitute for Cane Sugar, due to its low GI. A healthier ingredient option.
