As you sing and twirl around your kitchen, collecting ingredients and spices, you are
shocked to find that you are out of a crucial ingredient. You still have time to run to
the store. When you get there, you see in place of your favorite ingredient is a little
sign that says “temporarily out of stock”. A moment of panic – what now?


At Coconut Bliss, this parable became our reality a few months ago.We knew our 
supply of coconut milk was diminishing, but did not expect to open the cabinets and 
find the shelves bare. Our primary supplier of coconut milk, a family run organic grower
