I saw amazing people working hard to create things without a way to receive much in the way of compensation. Then it dawned on me... I could help!

More than 10 years ago company founder and current Global Goods Inc. president, Brian Oaks, began importing hard to find products from around the world. Through his efforts he gained an appreciation for the struggles people have in other under developed countries. "I saw amazing people working hard to create things without a way to receive much in the way of compensation. Then it dawned on me... I could help!"

Oaks and Global Goods Inc., leading producer of Organic Agave Nectar and Mexican Vanilla, are proud to introduce their newest product...Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil! This excellent Coconut Oil is Organic, Kosher and Fair Trade Certified. It's already getting rave reviews. According to Shannon Branson Fuller, President of, "It has a very pleasant flavor and scent that you don't find with most bleached, deodorized coconut oils coming out of Asia. If you are seeking to create a healthier lifestyle, this coconut oil is a must-have resource. It's great to know that it has been processed so little that I can use it in my Raw recipes."

Coconut Oil is rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals and is used all over the world as a healthy cooking oil.

    . It is a stable, healthy saturated fat that contains zero trans fats.
    . It is a medium chain fatty acid which is quickly absorbed, metabolized and converted into energy.
    . It supports healthy metabolic functions, promoting natural weight loss.
    . It supports the immune system.
    . It provides anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
    . It functions as an anti-oxidant.
    . It promotes healthy skin and hair.

In addition to providing amazing health benefits to people around the world, this new product also helps those in undeveloped countries. Oaks was on a trip to Africa working on schools, shelters, libraries and other projects all the while trying to come up with a way to produce something the villagers could support. He admits "most of my ideas never really got off the ground... but it only takes one good one to get you there!" It wasn't until he returned from a trip to Africa that he realized they naturally have coconuts growing all over the place. "I wasn't even sure how coconut oil was produced, but I found someone who did and we made it happen!"

Bringing this fantastic product to market took years of development, lots of teaching, and the resolve to overcome countless challenges. Oaks says, "This project has been one of the most challenging I've had when launching a new product, but I know the benefits will be felt around the world. And it fits perfectly within our mission 'Helping Others - Help Themselves'"
