Subject: Why Can't The Caribbean Tap into the New Market for Coconut Water?


Guys, I never thought I'd see the day when I have to buy coconut water. I grew up in Kingston but when I used to visit my grand-parents in the parishes of St. James and Hanover, I would drink coconut water. I had the most dexterous cousins. They would climb the myriad of coconut trees on their property like a monkey, and would toss the coconut down. They would use their machetes to chop off a piece for me to use as a scooper to eat the flesh of the coconut. I remember that I used to drink so much coconut water to the point where it seemed as if my belly might burst.

I don't drink soda anymore. I only drink natural fruit juices and coconut water from Indonesia. Vitacoco, a brand from Indonesia cost $3.99 for 33.8 fl oz. Other brands like Zico, Pure Naked, O.N.E Coconut Juice, Blue Money,etc, I will buy as well.

Guys, why didn't the Caribbean think about this before countries like Thialand, Brazil and Indonesia? We have an abundance of coconut trees. The water is packed with potassium, B-complex vitamins and bio-active enzymes that aid us in our digestion and metabolism.

Who would like to propose the idea to Tillman Thomas?
