COYO Back Soon

5 October 21

Sandra Gosling Co-Founder of COYO

The COYO story has been told all over the world since my Fiji-born husband, Henry, started the “Coconut Yoghurt Craze” by being the first to create a commercially produced, dairy free, coconut yoghurt in 2010. We introduced it to the Australian market…coconut yoghurt and the COYO brand was born.

We were in our mid 60’s with seven children and I was reluctant to start a new business, but COYO had other ideas! Soon three of our children were helping us full time, it‘s been a real family affair driven by Henry’s passion for the coconut and my passion for delicious, organic, nutritious food.

They were crazy days, but it was so exciting to see so many people share our passion for our delicious product! Especially those who had been restricted to a dairy and gluten-free diet.
In late 2011 we were contacted by a couple who were keen to take COYO to the UK, where they lived.
To cut a long story short, we appointed them as the exclusive UK Licensee, and shared our secret recipes, techniques and processes. We even sent our head yoghurt maker to the UK to teach them. We were thrilled to see, on our many trips to the UK, that the product was loved by COYO fans in the UK, as much as it was in Australia.
Unfortunately, last week, after 10 years, we were informed — without warning — that our licensee in the UK has sought to end its manufacture of our range of award-winning products. We are devastated as this will temporarily leave you, our loyal COYO fans, without your favourite coconut yoghurt. It will take us a little time to re-establish our supply, but with our usual passion for what we do, COYO WILL BE BACK SOON.
We apologise for the inconvenience and ask that you please stay in touch for more information — either via our official social media pages or by registering to be kept informed here.
Thank you for your support — it’s what drives us to get our delicious, dairy free COYO products back onto the UK shelves as soon as possible.
Keep Well, Keep it COYO. Sandra Gosling and the COYO family
