Zico changes packaging

HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. Zico coconut water now is available in new, on-the-go packaging.

Previously packaged in only paper Tetra Pak containers, Zico is now available in a 14-oz. bottle featuring a resealable cap, easy grip shape and increased durability.

"Our new bottle blends the convenience of a sports drink with Zico's premium, all natural product, which already provides more nutrients and better hydration," said Mark Rampolla, CEO and founder of Zico. "The bottle, which can be thrown into a gym bag or kept in a car holder, will make it even easier for consumers to incorporate Zico into their daily lives."

A portion of the Zico bottle is also made from recycled content. Expected retail price of the new 14-oz. bottle is $2.79. Zico products can be found at Whole Foods and www.zico.com.
