Pouring On Goodness 

A staple of traditional Asian and Caribbean cuisines, coconut milk lends its rich and creamy goodness to many wonderful regional and international dishes and beverages.  

Native Forest® Organic Curry Coconut Milk is sourced on the beautiful island nation of Sri Lanka, where fresh organic coconuts are pressed to extract their rich and creamy milk and regional organic spices are added to provide an authentic Asian flair.  Organic Curry Coconut Milk is ideal for enhancing such dishes as sautéed veggies, noodles, soups, stews and sauces.

Also sourced by dedicated family farmers in Sri Lanka, Native Forest® Unsweetened Organic Turmeric Coconut Milk is blessed with an oil-rich extract and enhanced with local organic turmeric to create another Edward & Sons superfood every bit as wholesome as it is versatile. Delicious in soups, curries, sauces, and beverages, Unsweetened Organic Turmeric Coconut Milk additionally adds an irresistibly creamy goodness to smoothies, non-dairy specialties and classic regional dishes. 

Recipe ideas for the new Turmeric Coconut Milk can be found at and Curry Coconut Milk recipes will be available shortly.

Kosher Certified and packed in BPA Non-Intent cans, both new coconut milk products are sold in 13.5 fluid ounce containers.  

Like all other Edward & Sons coconut-based items, both new coconut milk products are harvested  only by humans and never by monkeys.

Commenting on the latest additions to the Native Forest® Coconut Milk family, Joel Dee said, “Turmeric is a well-known tropical spice and a potent antioxidant, so it has become especially popular with growing numbers of people now taking dietary steps to boost their immune systems. Turmeric features a pleasing, subtle taste of its own. When blended with other regional spices, it becomes a foundation ingredient in curry dishes, enjoyed in traditional cuisines from India to Jamaica.

“Both turmeric and curry are perfect companions to the smooth, creamy richness of organic coconut milk. Given the remarkable popularity and growth of Native Forest® organic coconut milk, , I’m confident our recently-introduced Curry and new Turmeric coconut milk will likewise become favorites among discerning consumers. We are passionate about offering  home cooks exciting organic, plant-based culinary innovations. They are especially important  during these challenging, stay-at-home times.
