About Xoca Cacao Fruit Soda
Upcycling and durability
The cocoa fruit, recognized around the world for its distinctive pod, is a true natural wonder. Not only does it contain the seeds that turn into chocolate, but it also contains a deliciously sweet fruit pulp that is packed with energy and nutrition. But while the seeds of the cocoa fruit are used to make chocolate, the pulp is normally discarded, with over 600,000 tonnes of cocoa fruit pulp juice left behind on farms around the world each year. Today, thanks to the creation of Xoca Cacao Fruit Soda, this undervalued natural resource is available to consumers as a delicious and refreshing drink, the purchase of which benefits both the planet and the farmers who grow cocoa.
Xoca Cacao Fruit Soda comes at a time of transformation for the traditional soda market. Beverage consumers, driven by a desire for good taste, authenticity and better health, increasingly find a gap between brands that offer either pleasure or benefits, but not both. Xoca intends to fill this gap.
“When you drink Xoca Cacao Fruit Soda, we want you to feel high,” says co-founder Jacob Lopata, “Raised because you are part of an eco-friendly community. And raised because the Xoca’s mild sweetness and natural theobromine levels give you a nice and better boost for you anytime of the day.
