Vicky Henley of The Coconut Company explains:
“Consumers are simply nuts about coconuts. Natural healthy living is at the heart of what we do; we work very closely with our suppliers to ensure products are of the very best quality and all of our coconuts are sourced from farmers that have organic certification or farm naturally with no pesticides or herbicides.
It was a natural choice to choose Complete Co-Packing Services as our UK manufacturing and distribution partner. With organic certification and all best in class accreditations, the team offers complete flexibility to combine packing with warehousing, across our diverse product range. They are able to handle liquids, powders, syrups and oils and cope with varying fill orders and customer requests from small to large.”

“We are seeing great traction with a number of new distributors and entities across Europe and the Middle East. We are also working closely with a potential major distributor from Australia who is very interested in our coconut vinegars. We are also developing an organic new ‘coconut protein powder’ for both the consumer supplements and ingredients market, which will be a first in the UK. Complete Co-Packing Services will play a key role in helping us to exploit these opportunities and further grow our business.”
