“We have a strong commitment to family farming and organic standards. We stand firmly against genetically modified foods (No GMOs). But the organic label is not enough for us. We research and find out where the products are produced, and how they are produced. We find that some organic standards too loose for our trust, so we look beyond what is claimed on a label. We find out as much as possible about those who provide the products. And if a certain quality of product does not exist, we will work with others to produce that product and offer it to our consumers. We did that with Virgin Coconut Oil in the Philippines, and we have done the same thing since coming back to live here in the US.”

How much better can it get?  They sent me a GLORIOUS quart of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil that retails at $29.50.  It is HUGE.  I have loved using it for everything – cooking, favorite recipes, bath and body tricks – everything.  I can tell it is quality.  Here is my newest favorite recipe for coconut oil:
