Filipino company now exports coco water to Walmart US
Coco water from the Philippines is now being sold in the stores of US retailing giant Walmart Inc., thanks to Filipino agribusiness company AgriNurture Inc. (ANI).
A report in Manila Bulletin showed that ANI, a pioneer of processed coconut water from the Philippines, has recently forged a partnership with Cocojoy USA for the distribution of its new innovation, the sparkling coconut water.
Through the partnership, the product of the publicly listed firm was finally made available in all Walmart stores.
The product, according to the report, is also receiving positive reception from customers of various nationalities and not just Filipinos in the US.
Headquartered in Utah, Cocojoy sources its products from the Philippines.
Cocojoy USA CEO Karl Farnsworth said in the report that the sparkling coconut water has rosy prospects in the US amid strong reception after its initial foray in the North American market.
