KooCo Drinks Company
The Kooco Drinks brand is owned by Imperial Direct Limited.
We have over 35 years of experience in the F&B production and distribution industry. Our factory conforms to the highest standards of excellence, in our commitment to provide our customers with only the best quality premium products.
My business life started in 1985 when I formed my first company, and entered into manufacturing for the catering sector, this continues to run today by my sons.
In 2015 I decided to branch off into a totally different sector. As over the years, I have seen a growing trend amongst the public towards a healthier living style.
After some research on healthy drinks, I decided on Coconut, Walnut, Cashew, and Almond. I visited several candidate countries as I wanted to make sure all the ingredients used in the manufacturing would be from original fruits and nuts from harvesting farms and plantations for this purpose, and eventually found the most suitable country and manufacturing plant with several very important accreditations, such as ISO 2200, FDA, HACCP, WALMART etc.. and also met the required hygiene standards.
Manufacturing capacity of the chosen plant is 150 full loads per month and is an established company of 25 years. These were important points for me when making my final decision, as I had to ensure a consistent supply.
We developed our exclusive recipes of low calorie 30% coconut Milk, 20% Almond Milk, our very original 20% Walnut Milk, 20% Cashew Milk and our Coconut Milk Coffee formula together with our manufacturing partner under our own brand of “KooCo”.
I had seen an opportunity in the UK market for high quality, healthy, nourishing and refreshing drinks in 330ml cans suitable to pick up and drink to immediately quench a thirst.
Our products are very original and distinctive, with their natural smooth taste and natural aroma as soon as the can is open. They are suitable for adults, especially for people with an intolerance to dairy milk, also for vegans, vegetarians and children from five years old. They can also be used in tea, coffee, cereals etc…which all offer several different health benefits.
I am currently working on the development of other very ORIGINAL healthy soft drinks to expand our product range, which will become available in the near future.
It makes me very happy to pioneer KooCo plant-based milk drinks in 330ml cans, and seeing my products sold in every possible sales point throughout the UK, makes me feel very proud.
I will continue to introduce unusual exotic healthy drinks to the UK and to the world.
Under suitable climate, rainfall and environmental conditions, coconuts can germinate and grow into coconut palms and start fruiting after three years.
A coffee bean is actually a seed. When dried, roasted and ground, it’s used to brew coffee. If the seed isn’t processed, it can be planted and grow into a coffee tree. Coffee seeds are generally planted in large beds in shaded nurseries.
Coconuts take around one year to ripen fully. Several coconuts grow together in a bunch and they ripen about the same time. If you want to harvest the fruit for the coconut milk, the fruit is ready 6-7 months
Coconut flesh (the white part) is grated and soaked in hot water. The coconut cream rises to the top and can be skimmed off in the extraction process. The remaining liquid is squeezed through a special type of filter to extract a white liquid that is the coconut milk.
