The idea for Coconut Grove was inspired by a friend’s curiosity and born from a challenge.
Is it possible to produce a delicious coconut yogurt without dairy milk?
One of our founders, Rodney Grisso, was researching ideas for a new business to involve a longtime colleague in the Phillipines.
In his research, he came across an intriguing book, titled Philippine Fermented Foods: Principles and Technology, which presented some interesting information about coconut products…
The book asserted that producing a good tasting coconut yogurt was impossible without the addition of dairy milk.
This was a challenge! And that was when our other two partners – Greg Hartman and Steve Reed – were drawn into the picture.
The rest is history – and there is more to come!
