The demand is not showing any signs of slowing down. Chris Brockman, senior food and drink analyst at Mintel (global market intelligence agency) says, “Coconut in general is benefiting from being ‘on-trend’ on a number of fronts, and coconut flavoured variants as a whole can be expected to continue to grow across the food and drink sector.”

The seed is holding onto its market roots with coconut water, although big brands are also expanding to offer flavoured products to target the demand.
