 The story of Cocomon Spread

Kumara's dad gave him a knife when he was small.

He said,

‘I am now handing over my way of life to you. Enjoy it and never lose it!’

Kumara started his career as a Cinnamon farmer when he was just 16 years old.

‘I take care of these trees as my own children' says Kumara while pointing at a Cinnamon tree like a proud father.

Kumara made the Cocomon spread while trying to create a spread to use at home instead of butter on bread.

‘This spread needs to be in every household in the world’ says Kumara.

‘Cinnamon reduces blood sugar and cholesterol levels in the body and is great for overall health.

I am thankful that I get to eat something so tasty, organic and great for my health which I grow on my own farm.

I now want everybody else to enjoy it and the benefits of it.’
