CocoPro Secures Listing With Waitrose

Waitrose has begun stocking CocoPro, a sports recovery drink which combines coconut water and whey protein isolate, aimed at the post-exercise hydration and recovery market.

The drinks are the UK’s first high protein coconut waters, containing 20g of whey protein per pack and 100% of the daily recommended vitamin C. It is sweetened with stevia.

CocoPro, one of whose founders is former Scottish international rugby player Rory Lawson, said it aims to meet the needs of both athletes and people with an active lifestyle.

The range is available in two flavours – Coconut, and Coconut & Pineapple (330ml / £2.50) – from Waitrose stores and website.
