Ridiculously Delicious Coconut Water

You’ve probably heard, and rightly so that coconut water is a natural rehydration elixir. High in minerals, low in fats, low in cholesterol but what you may not know is, that not all coconut waters are created equal. While it’s true, they’re all fairly close in nutritional values; they are far from equal when it comes to flavour.

CoAqua won blind taste tests in New York against all major coconut water brands. “Wow, tastes like I’m drinking straight from a coconut.” ~ Domino Magazine.

In addition to its superior taste, CoAqua is differentiated from the standard 1L tetra pack. Available in glass or slimline aluminium cans, both 250ml.

For smoothie lovers, the slimline makes the perfect serve size. Add one can to the nutri-bullet and you’re done. Available in multi-packs of 1.5L - a smarter choice.

People looking for a premium offering, look no further than CoAqua’s perfect glass bottle.

When Little Island launched its coconut milk into chillers back in 2016, few were talking about the plant-based wave of products to come. After already enjoying great success with their range of coconut ice cream, founding duo Tommy and James saw the oncoming need for a family friendly dairy-free option that tasted great. Two years on and Little Island is the category leader, offering both an Original variant for consumers and a Barista Grade variant which recently become the sole coconut milk supplied to Starbucks nationwide.

Globally, non-dairy milk consumption is growing by double digits and is showing no sign of slowing down.
