CocoPro was founded by Rory Lawson, a former international rugby player capped 31 times by Scotland including two Rugby World Cups. He played club rugby at Gloucester, Edinburgh and Newcastle during his 11 year career and also represented the world famous Barbarians. Prior to professional rugby Rory graduated from Edinburgh University with an MA Business Studies and worked for a number of startup businesses whilst playing rugby full time.
During and after his rugby career, Rory became increasingly frustrated at the number of supposedly healthy drinks on the market that were actually full of sugar and artificial ingredients. It was impossible to choose a healthy option on the go apart from water, so he decided to make his own. The goal was to create a drink so good that it could meet the needs of not only athletes, but anyone seeking to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
A year later, after the usual start up business mishaps, the first CocoPro drink was born – a low sugar, protein-packed coconut water. CocoPro is different because it is low in naturally occurring sugar and made with all natural premium ingredients. No artificial ingredients, just all the electrolytes, minerals and protein you need to help fuel your day.
CocoPro has since become more than a drink. It has grown into a community designed to inspire and motivate anyone working to achieve their goals whether that be running a marathon or walking up the stairs at work.
