An organic coconut water drink once named by Health magazine as “America’s healthiest beverage” is proudly made in the Philippines.
O.N.E. organic coconut water is manufactured in the Philippines but is sold in export markets such as the US.
The product was praised as an example of how the Philippines’ coconut product exports can be packaged in an attractive way for the foreign export markets.
O.N.E. organic coconut water is made with coconuts from the Philippines and packaged in shiny blue Tetra Pak cartons. The stylish but eco-friendly Tetra Pak packaging allows the coconut water to remain fresh and can be stored for months without refrigeration.
According to its website, the coconut water drink is a product of O.N.E. One Natural Experience, an all-natural beverage company founded by Brazilian businessman Rodrigo Veloso. He launched the company in Los Angeles, and introduced O.N.E. organic coconut water at Whole Food Markets in 2006.
The drink quickly became the number one alternative beverage sold in the supermarket chain’s outlets in southern California.
The website said Health magazine even named the drink as “America’s healthiest beverage” for providing enhanced hydration, essential nutrition and all five essential electrolytes (calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous and sodium).
A dozen 11-oz O.N.E. coconut drinks is being sold for $21 on Amazon.com.
Coconut products are one of the Philippines’ top exports.
