Vita Coco, the leading coconut water brand, launched in 2004 when two friends, Michael Kirban and Ira Liran learned about the tropical elixir after a chance encounter at a New York City bar. Not only did their discovery bring coconut water into the mainstream beverage aisle, it rebranded coconut water as a premium lifestyle drink and helped propel the trend of natural-functional beverages. Fast forward 18 years, and Vita Coco is available in 30 countries and has expanded coconut water into new occasions with innovations like Vita Coco Sparkling, Pressed, Coconutmilk, and Coconut Oil.
In 2018, Vita Coco expanded into a true portfolio company, making it one of the largest independent and privately-owned beverage companies in the world. With the acquisition of RUNA, a clean energy drink, and the creation of Ever & Ever, an environmentally-minded, sustainably-packaged water category, now the Vita Coco company is changing the ready-to-drink beverage landscape by offering its consumers better-for-you, yet convenient, options. Despite massive growth and success, Vita Coco maintains the same entrepreneurial spirit on which it was founded, with a can-do culture that’s just beginning to tap the potential of the better-for-you beverage space.
Vita Coco is headquartered in New York City with international offices in Singapore and London.
“ At Vita Coco, there are endless opportunities to work on new projects and ideas. The Vita Coco team is second-to-none in using collaboration and creativity to continue leading the way in the coconut water category. ”
“ Vita Coco has a truly unique culture. Never have I worked for a company that embodies the "work hard play hard" mentality the way Vita Coco does. These coconuts aren't just "co-workers", they're family. ”
“ The culture at Vita Coco is second-to-none. I consider Vita Coco as the oldest start-up in the country (in a good way); we have all the benefits/perks of a "big business", but the entrepreneurial mindset/attitude of a start-up. ”
