LAS VEGAS, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Coco Taps, a coconut tool manufacturer and beverage company, announces its first grocery store distribution agreement for its coconut water tool kit with Albert's Organics, the nation's leading distributor of organic food. The Coco Taps Tool Kit brings a safe and simple system to open coconuts and drink fresh coconut water.
Tool Kit Allows Easy Tapping and Reusable Cap
Developed in 2014, Coco Taps Tool Kit provides a tapper tool and reusable cap for drinking directly from the coconut and sealing it for refrigeration. The entire tool kit is dishwasher safe. The introduction of the tool kit coincides with the growing popularity of coconut water and as a go-to sports drink, according to market research.
"We're thrilled to introduce the Coco Taps Tool Kit to America with Albert's Organics," Vincent Zaldivar, CEO of Coco Taps, said. "We removed the mess and stress from opening fresh coconuts," he added. "With our tapper tool, consumers can simply tap the coco and its ready to drink."
Two years ago, Zaldivar invented the tool kit after breaking an expensive German knife and almost cutting off his finger while trying to open a coconut. "I knew there had to be an easier solution to get to the refreshing coco water," Zaldivar said.
"Albert's Organics is pleased to introduce a fun and exciting way for customers to enjoy the freshest organic non-pasteurized coconut water on the market," Joe P. Smith, western division manager of Albert's Organics, said. "Coconut buyers can now easily open their coconut, enjoy their organic coconut water and store it in the fridge."
A Nourishing Drink Straight from the Coconut
The fresh clear liquid inside the center of a young coconut fruit is low in sugar and calories, high in potassium and contains fiber. According to the USDA, a one cup serving of fresh coconut water contains 45.6 calories, 6.3 grams of sugar, 2.6 grams of fiber and 600 milligrams of potassium. Coconut water is hydrating.
