Every story starts with a strong experience. During our many travels in Asia we kept on coming across a beautiful ritual: an old wooden cart with a pile of coconuts. The knife that expertly cuts the husk. The fresh juice, the laughter of the salesman. A moment of sheer joy. Our vision was born there. To bring this moment of joy and this great and refreshing taste closer to home. That is how the idea was born. And the name: Happy Coco!
Then the search for the best taste began. We compared the taste of many countries and regions. Some were too sweet for us, other to stale or sour. We like a coconut to taste a bit sweet, but fresh and surprising at the same time. After a lot of searching and comparing, we ended up with the King Coconut from Sri Lanka. Picked at the right time, these nuts have the perfect balance of sweetness and taste.
For us this is how a Raw coconut water should taste like. We are happy to share the love for coconuts with others and stand by a brand that is made with a head and a heart.
Our head office is in Amsterdam where the idea of Happy Coco! was born. Our production center is located in Sri Lanka: The home of the King Coconut and the source for our Organic Coconut products. Our center of marketing is Berlin – the city of raw organic ideas and movements within a very creative vegan scene. We are an international team with professional backgrounds in special fields like Food, Marketing, Distribution, Design, Public Relation and Finances. We are united in our passion for Raw Food, all things Coconut and Responsible Business. And in our commitment to do something that we believe in.
I lived in India for a long time and without fresh coconut water, I would not have been able to survive the heat. An idea stuck in my mind: how to bring this refreshing drink to European shores. I found the best water with the finest flavor in the King Coconut of Sri Lanka. It just made me happy. The name was found and from there it started - the adventure of a lifetime.
When I tasted coconut water from a young, fresh coconut for the first time, I was overwhelmed: it was a beam of energy that woke me up and harmonized me at the same time. And that light sweetness on my tongue - Wow! Working for Happy Coco in sales and distribution is a similar experience - always new and surprising. It has broadened my perspective and put the responsibility for our environment even more at the top of my daily priorities.
Real coconut water must be pure - that was our mission right from the start. Because only then does it come close to the original experience: I will never forget the moment when I drank fresh coconut water for the first time - in the breathtaking midday heat somewhere in South India. The rusty machete, the seller's toothless laugh, the fresh coconut water that ran down my thirsty throat. Starting from this moment, we continue to discover, step by step, the wonders of this amazing fruit.
After working in Germany and Holland, I got the opportunity to work for Happy Coco. I was never a coconut fan - but of course - at the first meeting with the team I had to try it right away. It tasted amazing and it gave me last necessary energy boost that I needed to get the job. In addition to the fantastic products, I was very enthusiastic about the enthusiasm and creativity of this colorful company. I am very grateful that fate has offered me this opportunity.
The first time I tried Happy Coco! it was love at first sip. It is precisely this love that brought us together: our love of nature, healthy nutrition, and organic products. My job is to track the new trends in the coconut and lifestyle of the vegan scene and to share special moments with our friends and followers. Because life itself is so special - Happy Coco wants to contribute a small part of it.
On a hot day in Rio de Janeiro, I drank a green coconut with a straw. It was filled with a pure, transparent liquid - and an energizing taste. After many years working in the non-food sector in different countries, it was easy for me to choose Happy Coco. The variety of the team, the quality of our products (the yoghis!) and the opportunity to get my daily coconut water ration: no matter where I am.
I worked for different fashion designers. There we talked a lot about sustainability - how we could work out ideas and things that we believe in. Then I got to know the Happy Coco team and Arjuna's idea of bringing King Coconut Water to Europe. I was in Sri Lanka for a while and know this liquid pure powerhouse very well. So I - of course - immediately said yes. The beauty of this simple idea inspires me daily in my work.
