If you’re searching for vegan-friendly organic whole foods that are free of all 14 major allergens (yes, including gluten, dairy and soya), you’re in good hands with Koko. What’s that you say? You’re hoping for some added vitamins and calcium fortification, too? Friend, look no further.
Imagine the haven of all things coconuts; a serene plantation navigated by boat-loads of ripe coconuts being readied by dedicated hands for your consumption. That’s where the good folks at Koko work their organic magic.
The first UK company to create a coconut-based dairy milk alternative, this family-owned company prioritises growing coconut palms the way nature intended.
To guarantee freshness, ripeness and the highest possible quality, every coconut used in Koko products is packed by human hands within hours of being picked. With over three decades of coconut-growing experiences, and the ability to harvest and care for over one million coconuts every day, these guys take the term ‘experts’ to whole new levels.
In their own words…
“With a name like Koko, you’d expect us to be a bit nuts about coconuts. But the love we have for this fantastic fruit goes way beyond our name… it’s nice to be nice to your coconuts after all!”
No Monkey Business
Dating back to 2010, Koko was founded by the abundant love of coconuts. Because when you love something this much, you just want to be around it all the time. And, because coconuts are pretty amazing!
Of course, it would take a great deal of innovation to take that rich coconut milk and turn it into a sublime alternative to semi-skimmed dairy milk. But that’s exactly what Koko went ahead and achieved, with their wildly successful debut hit - Koko Dairy Free Original.
Tasty enough to hook even the devoutest of dairy fans, this milk alternative spurred the Koko team on to create a range of alt yoghurt, cheese, spread and (you guessed it), even more milk variations
Needless to say, Koko’s adoring fans went (coco)nuts!
Why We Love Koko
If you’re looking for a brand that embodies the organic ethos and (like their coconut trees) never stops growing, we’re certain you’ll go (coco)nuts for Koko.
These guys are always finding new ways to share their love of coconuts. And they don’t stop at creating new products for your enjoyment. Oh, no! Did you ever wonder if the coconut is a fruit, seed or a nut? Did you know it can technically be defined as all three? Or how about that in Asia, the coconut tree is known as the Tree of Life?
Did you know that beyond providing nutritious food and hydrating water, coconuts can be used to build houses, and make compost, fuel, ropes and mats?
Any brand that not only wears their heart on their sleeve but also puts high value on education is a brand that we at Wholefoody tip our hat to. And a brand that favours sustainable and clever produce like the coconut tree - even better!
And don’t even get us started on their mouthwatering range of enticing, filterable recipes.
As you can likely tell, Koko ticks a lot of boxes for us. This brand is conscientious, passionate about our planet, and ethical to a fault; you’ll find no animal labour involved in the harvesting of these coconuts. What’s more, they recognise the humble coconut’s awesome potential, and do everything they can to help you enjoy their I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-dairy products.
