Coca-Cola Co-controlled Zico Beverages is set to release its namesake chocolate-flavoured coconut water brand in Tetra-Pak format in the US.

The company, which launched Zico Chocolate in 14oz bottles in the country last year, said today (11 July) that the variant will launch this month in 1-litre Tetra-Paks in “key national retailers”. Amazon.com will stock the new format “soon”, Zico said.

The firm will continue to offer Zico Natural in the 1-litre format as well as in 11oz cartons. The stable is rounded out by five other flavours, available in 14oz bottles.

California-based Zico was founded in 2004, when it launched Zico Pure Premium Coconut Water. Earlier this year, the Coca-Cola Co upped its stake in Zico, giving it majority control of the company.
