I live in Portugal and although access to quality foods is fairly easy (iberian pork, fresh seafood, grass fed - although grain finished - beef, etc.), I do struggle to find some items.
Coconut products are almost nowhere to be seen (I pay way too much for the jar of coconut oil sitting in my kitchen), as are some nuts (macadamias, pecan) and some paleo snacks are just impossible to find.
I've stumbled upon several US-based online stores that sell pale snacks and most have natural jerky.
My question: anyone kenos a store that ships it to Europe?
If you aren't able to find any, making jerky is really quite easy. You'll need a cheap dehydrator, or an oven you can keep at very low temperature, or VERY dry sunny days, racks and screening to keep the bugs away. You can also build a solar dehydrator if you'll be making jerky often. There are lots of recipes and instructions online.
For organic cold pressed coconut oil please try:
Been buying there for years. It's run by a woman who lives in Fuengirola, Andalucía (near Málaga) and she is the agent for a German company. Oil is sent from Germany. I buy the 25 kg barrel.
Macadamia Nuts: I buy them here:
I don't know if they ship to Portugal, but there are many great products availabnle in Spain. Perhaps being in Portugal you can take advantage of the Iberian connection.

Oi Dinis, reparei que és Português.
Podes encomendar óleo de côco barato destes sítios.
Agora jerky é mais complicado: também já andei à procura e não encontrei nenhum site que enviasse jerky em conta, ou que enviasse de todo.
Já agora, parece que estamos na mesma actividade, se bem que eu sou mais web (wordpress) e marketing e falar com pessoas etc.
Olha, mete aqui o teu email ou qq coisa assim para estarmos em contacto. Isto dos Paleos man, somos poucos.
Hail @Dinis Correia
I know this is an old post, but, did you found something new? Im also from Portugal and find paleo food in here for me is almost impossible =S
And its becoming tiring to go to big food superstores... Because even to buy the most simple thing, i loose hours just reading ingredients and more...
