COYO Paleo Vegan Yogurt is “Heaven in a Mouthful”


COYO founder Henry Gosling was born and raised in Fiji, the grandson of an island shipwrecked mariner from England, Captain Harry Gosling. He grew up in Suva and spent his school holidays wandering the coconut plantations of Savu Savu, surrounded by sprouting coconut saplings. As the eldest son of six children, his job was to collect coconuts for dinner, scrape out the succulent white flesh, grate it and squeeze it into milk for the family’s evening meal — usually a coconut curry. While kids in the United States shelled peas, Henry scraped coconuts. There was an implicit understanding amongst the Fijian people that coconuts were not only delicious, but very nourishing. Coconut milk, water, oil and flesh had sustained them for generations, but it would take many years before the science caught up with what the Fijians already knew.

In June 2009, Henry was living a semi-retired life with his wife Sandra on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, their seven children all grown up. Henry had been searching for a new way to bring the benefits of coconut to the world – something that hadn’t been done before. That’s when his lightbulb moment struck. At around 3am on a Sunday morning he sat up in bed and thought: I’m going to make yogurt out of coconuts. He went straight to the computer, eager to find out if anyone else was making coconut yogurt – real yogurt containing probiotic cultures, but made from coconut milk instead of dairy – on a commercial scale. No one was.

Henry’s entrepreneurial brain went into overdrive. He imagined a coconut yogurt that was so smooth and creamy that people would fall in love with the taste first, then be impressed by its health benefits. But could it be done? Henry had no idea. He was propelled by a passion that stemmed from his idyllic childhood. He’d never made yogurt in his life, but working with coconuts was second nature to him.

It took six months of daily testing, handcrafting batch after batch, for Henry to perfect Australia’s first coconut yogurt alternative: COYO. Sandra was hesitant to embark on a new business venture at their stage in life. But she was also excited by the new world of dietary decadence they could offer people living with dairy, lactose and gluten intolerances. She knew first-hand how hard it could be. Sandra had developed severe asthma after having her first child and as a trained naturopath, had traced it back to an imbalance in her gut. She discovered she was allergic to gluten and intolerant to dairy, and her health improved dramatically when she ate fermented foods and probiotics to build up her gut flora.

In November 2009, Sandra took a sample to her yoga class and the feedback she received was right on the mark: “Mmm, heaven in a mouthful”. Upon trialling the product, the manager of a local health food store said if they could make the product commercially, every health food store in Australia would buy it. It was that good.

At the beginning of 2010, Henry and Sandra were about to put every cent they had into making the first commercial batch of COYO and doubt began to creep in. Were they doing the right thing? Sandra secretly wondered if Henry hadn’t gone a little crazy in the coconut...

To clear their heads before making the final commitment, Henry and Sandra took a long walk along a Sunshine Coast beach on a blustery day. As if by magic, a wave rolled in and deposited a coconut right at their feet. Covered in barnacles it looked as though it had floated all the way from Fiji, the sign was clear. It was a green light. COYO was about to win over the hearts and tastebuds of the world.

Since originally launching in 2010, demand for COYO has grown and with help from friends we have been able to share COYO with world. COYO is now made in the United States of America under the watchful eye of food legends Chuck and Ian. Foodies with a passionate eye for purity, integrity and ethical food production.

We hope that through COYO’s addictively delicious charms, we will inspire you to eat well, live well and be happy.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any paleo certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 

Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
