• What’s the story behind Koko?
Koko was started in 2010 and we were the first UK company to make a coconut-based alternative to dairy milk.
We loved the milk inside coconuts so to us it seemed natural to turn it into another kind of milk that more people could enjoy. Using our exclusive coconut know-how we created a milk that tastes remarkably close to semi-skimmed dairy milk: Koko Original Like M!lk. It was so successful we expanded our range and introduced even more milks as well as alternatives to yogurt, cheese and spread.
