ZICO Beverages is an American beverage company that manufactures coconut water.

In 2013, ZICO became majority owned by The Coca-Cola Company, which it retained for the next seven years. In January 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic and after years of declining sales, the company was sold back to its founder, Mark Rampolla, through PowerPlant Ventures.

History[edit]

ZICO was founded in 2004 by Mark Rampolla after being introduced to coconut water as a Peace Corps volunteer in Central America.[1]

In 2009, The Coca-Cola Company purchased a minority stake in ZICO[2] and increased that to a majority stake in 2012.[3]

In 2013, Coca-Cola purchased the outstanding stake, acquiring ZICO in the process.[4]

In 2020, Coca-Cola announced it would discontinue ZICO by the end of the year.[5]

In January 2021, PowerPlant Ventures announced their acquisition of ZICO coconut water from The Coca-Cola Company. The brand’s ownership has come full circle, as PowerPlant Ventures was co-founded and is co-led by Mark Rampolla, who was behind ZICO’s initial 2004 launch.[6]

Ingredients[edit]

ZICO contains pure coconut water – often in concentrate form, which has been the source of a litigation.[7]

Flavors[edit]

ZICO’s coconut water comes in a variety of flavors including natural, chocolate, jalapeño mango, and watermelon raspberry.[8][9]
