Hong Kong to get its first taste of the world’s super-premium coconut water
The founders of Coco’s Coconut Company set off in 2013 with a single goal – to create the first super-premium coconut water brand in clear glass bottles with a view to tier-one cocktail bars, five-star hotels and restaurants, and gourmet markets.
Bringing CoAqua® to taste- and style-conscious Hong Kong consumers is a priority for the founders of Coco’s.
Aidyn Crowe of Universal Exports commented, “Our team conducted a taste test of CoAqua® and just had to grab the distribution deal to bring what we believe is ‘the super-premium’
Hong Kong’s and Macau’s cocktail bars, hotels, restaurants and retailers. Universal has selected CoAqua as one of the brands that it will be featuring at the Restaurant & Bar Hong Kong Expo (www.restaurantandbarhk.com) on September 2 – 4.
Coco’s Coconut Company co-founder Steve Gilberd says, “Hong Kong/Macau is going to be a very important market for us. We believe it’s ready for a premium product like CoAqua®. Smart consumers in Hong Kong already know about coconut water and its health benefits. We feel they’re now ready for the good stuff. We’ve selected Universal Exports because they’re true believers in the product and they’ve built a track record of building long-term brand value.
Co-founder Grier Govorko says, “We owe a lot to big brands like Vita Coco, as they were the first movers. They created a whole new category and opened the world’s eyes to coconut water as a truly great natural beverage. “We think people are now ready for a premium product.”
The world’s first super-premium coconut water. Younger. Sweeter. BetterTM...and so began an almost obsessive, months-long journey around Southeast Asia on a quest for the perfect coconut water. It was a journey that ended in Vietnam, where we found the finest green coconuts, the best coconut water deep in the Mekong Delta.
Why glass bottles? Well, because we never settled for anything less. We don’t like plastic, we’re not sold on tetrapak, and we felt from the beginning that Coaqua® is a drink that should look as good as it tastes. For more information about CoAqua please go to:
