Get to know us!

The story of ZICO® Coconut Water begins in Central America, where, while volunteering, founder Mark Rampolla took notice that the locals regularly drank sweet coconut water for replenishment.

After returning home and realizing it was hard to find, he decided to bring it to the States. In 2004, Mark left his corporate career to create ZICO® Coconut Water, initially selling it out of a van to New York City yoga studios. He couldn’t make it quickly enough; customers were hooked on its refreshing taste and hydrating benefits.

The story goes on to Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, where our suppliers source coconuts from hundreds of local farmers and work directly with coconut plantations – many that have been in families for generations to bring you crisp, delicious ZICO.

Our farmers blend young Nam Ham coconuts with semi-mature coconuts to achieve the optimal level of sweetness so that we don’t have to add sugar into our 100% coconut water. In 2019, we opened our very own processing facility in Thailand to complement the great work of our partners.

We are passionate about finding ways to be a part of your daily life. Through our product offerings with diverse flavors and benefits, there is something for everyone in your circle. Keep a look out for news from us as we are always working on new additions to our family of products.
