Coyo is a local business established in 2009 on the Sunshine Coast. Co-Founder Henry Gosling was born and raised in Fiji, He grew up in Suva and spent his school holidays wandering the coconut plantations of Savu Savu, surrounded by sprouting coconut saplings.
There was an implicit understanding amongst the Fijian people that coconuts were not only delicious, but very nourishing. Coconut milk, water, oil and flesh had sustained them for generations, but it would take many years before the science caught up with what the Fijians already knew.
It took six months of daily testing, handcrafting batch after batch to perfect Australia’s first coconut yoghurt alternative: COYO. Excited by the new world of dietary decadence they could offer people living with dairy, lactose and gluten intolerances.
High in nutrients, made with care from 100% high quality, hand selected pure ingredients. This means no to empty calories, fillers, preservatives, additives, refined sugars, or artificial anything! They use at least 97% pure organic coconut milk in each pot, an optimal selection of live vegan cultures chosen for outstanding cultural activity, 100% natural and certified organic ingredients, sustainably grown and ethically made. Vegan, Paleo and Ketogenic friendly. The result is our award-winning, nutrient-rich plant-based yoghurts and ice-creams that make your heart and tummy sing!
Dairy Freedom means different things to different people depending on your journey. Maybe you have personal dietary requirements, or you’re trying to eat healthier and capture the benefits of coconuts. Or perhaps you’re an environmentalist that is trying to lower your carbon footprint by choosing dairy-free products.
COYO encapsulates all of this and think these are all beautiful reasons. Dairy freedom is a super delicious and sustainable food future from plantation to plate.
