The Algarve is going to go nutty over a new health drink.

Rick and Helien Rebergen, originally from the Netherlands and now based in the Algarve, are the innovative founders of Goconutty®. With over 30 years of experience in the fruit and vegetable industry, specialising in fresh, natural, authentic and exotic produce, their next ambition is to make the Algarve go nutty over their new easy-to-open drinking coconut. 

This unique product is for everyone who loves something new, trendy, authentic, contemporary and healthy. Harvested at the perfect age to ensure the sweetest and most refreshing taste, Goconutty® is presented in a bright, food-safe jacket for a longer shelf life and is accompanied by an eco-friendly, bioplastic straw. Imagine being able to effortlessly open a delicious and healthy coconut without mess or hassle. With their new opening system, sharp knives are a thing of the past. All you have to do to reach the coconut water is turn the coconut over and push on it. Insert a straw and enjoy. 

Helien and Rick believe Algarve consumers will be going ‘coco nutty’ about the product thanks to the health benefits of coconut water.  Raw, unprocessed coconut water contains many important minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium. These are electrolytes that can ensure a good fluid balance, meaning they are incredibly good at hydrating your body, even better than water. This makes the water from the coconut the perfect health drink. Coconuts are also low in calories and a powerful antioxidant. 

In order to ensure a high level of food safety, their coconuts are sourced from reputable suppliers who adhere to strict quality control measures to prevent contamination and ensure freshness. Every precaution is taken to maintain the integrity of the Goconutty® during storage, transportation and distribution to ensure that it reaches the consumer in pristine condition.

The couple’s aim is to sell Goconutty® in bars, hotels, spas and supermarkets. After trialling them at the festival in Luz, Helien and Rick are confident it will become a popular drink in the Algarve this summer. To give the entrepreneurial couple the final word, “Join us on our mission to spread the love for coconut water. Go nuts with our coconuts!”
