Italian Produce imports Vietnamese drinking coconuts

Italian Produce is bringing a little tropical sunshine to the Ontario Food Terminal with ready-to-drink Hamona coconuts from Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.

President Vince Bruno said the product arrives frozen and is thawed a day or two before being shipped to store shelves, where it lasts two to three weeks. Customers can poke the soft “sprout eye” with the enclosed straw to drink the sweet coconut water, then crack open the shell to scoop out the jelly inside, if desired.

Bruno said Longo’s is his first customer. According to the Hamona site, “Enjoying a coconut is now easier than drinking a Coke.”
