In the middle of the desert where there the temperature source upto 50* the option of having Coconut drink was rare. Cocolino was the result of thorough research and health benefits.

Cocolino was the result, designed in two formats: glass bottle and aluminium can.

To represent Cocolino’s inherent freshness and purity, we chose to incorporate elements from nature into the design. Fresh green coconuts, a blue tropical orchid and a palm leaf texture running through the logo, help communicate the source of the product as well as its refreshing and wholesome properties.

To compliment those blue/green shades, we decided to use a crisp metallic silver as a background, overlaid with a tone-on-tone pattern. On the raw can substrate version of Cocolino, this pattern becomes more distinct the colder the can gets.

cocolino-3Coconut water has been generally offered to patients with diarrhea in many tropic regions to replace the fluid loss from the gastrointestinal tract and reduce the need for intravenous therapy. The osmolarity of tender coconut water is slightly greater than that of WHO recommended ORS (Oral Rehydration Therapy) osmolarity. Presence of other biological constituents like amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and fatty acids may account for this higher osmolarity. However, unlike WHO-ORS, its water is very low in sodium and chlorides, but rich in sugars and amino acids. This well-balanced fluid composition with much-needed calories would be an ideal drink than any other brand of soft drink beverages in dehydration conditions.
