Coconut Water is the liquid found inside the fresh coconut. It is processed into retail packs using the latest aseptic technology to preserve
the refreshing taste and quality of natural coconut water.
The coconut water 'revolution' as a main stream beverage was started by MichealKirban and his childhood friend Ira Liran at a bar in the east side of New York in the summer of 2003. They had met two Brazilian women who talked passionately about coconut water or "agua de coco" as they called it and how much they missed it. A business opportunity was identified, research into the health properties investigated and initial sourcing done from Brazil. Silvermill is happy that both these gentleman travelled a long distance to Sri Lanka and nominated us as their exclusive supplier of coconut water from Sri Lanka.Silvermill plans to pack over 15 million liters of coconut water per year into 'ready-to-drink' tetra packs for VITA COCO customers which include several celebrities and sportsman.
Following research done in 2006. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) found that coconut water contains a wide range of nutrients including vitamins (B6,folate,thiamin, Niacin) ,minerals (Potassium, Manganese, Copper, Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium, Chlorides) and 18 amino acids. In fact a 330ml (11.1 FL.OZ) Tetra Pack of VITA COCO Coconut water is rich in electrolytes and contains more potassium than a banana.
