Lavish Option For Coconut Lovers
While the South Pacific and Fiji Islanders have thrived on coconut oil for centuries, in the western world coconut products are only now fast becoming renowned for their immense health benefits.
Which is why local Megan Knight has just made her healthy food line available to customers at Coolum’s Lavish Deli, meaning locals can now easily enjoy the benefits of coconut products – from weight loss, muscle gain and increased energy levels, to reduced stress and generally looking and felling healthier.
Until now, Megan’s business operated online only via www.naturalsurrender.com which, although successful Australia-wide since 2005, made it impossible for locals and visitors alike to collect their orders from Megan personally.
“Whenever a local customer notes that I am in Coolum, they always contact to ask if they can come here to pick it up”, Megan said.
“One time, a woman who lived quite a long way north was travelling through and asked to call in and pick up her order.”
Megan believes that, as well as avoiding a freight cost, many of her customers resonate with the community feel of the Sunshine Coast and are keen to meet her in person – something she was unable to manage previously.
“I had to inform them that their order ships direct from our ACT warehouse so there has been no stock in Coolum for them to pick up,” she said.
Megan is naturally pleased to have finally found a solution.
“Sarah Regan of Lavish Deli at Coolum Beach is now stocking these products so that our local customers can drop in from 8.30am six days a week,” she said.
“This coconut range has grown extensively lately and Sarah has most of the new lines in the store now.
“As well as coconut oil (a good saturated fat), you will find coconut nectar items such as the extravagant chocolate coconut butter, coconut sugar, creamed coconut, coconut amino sauce (soy sauce alternative), coconut balsamic vinegar and more.”
Enter via either Birtwill or Heathfield Street, just near the Coolum Advertiser office in the ‘Pacific on Coolum’ complex.
