Cocomax 100 per cent coconut water was the initiator of the coconut water market in Thailand. The brand received good feedback from their consumers, who lean toward the young generation and health lovers. The product had a huge impact on the coconut water market in Thailand, with its success luring many other brands to join in. Cocomax is the top brand with the highest sales volume in the 100 per cent coconut water market. The company is now developing new flavours and variants of Cocomax to provide variety and choice for consumer, as well as refresh the current market.
Ampawa 100 per cent coconut milk represents a revolution in ready-to-cook coconut milk in the Thai industry, with its use of the PET format. The product uses carefully selected coconuts, which are freshly squeezed through modern and innovative production processes and then fill PET bottles using cold aseptic filling technology. The process helps preserve its natural white colour, viscosity, and the aroma of fresh coconut milk without any additives. Recently, Ampawa has added a new Tetra Prisma one-litre package to the product line in both 250 millilitre and 500 ml formats.
