Coco Tribe uses the highest quality organic coconut cream from Sri Lanka, mixed with Australia’s freshest produce to create delicious gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free, coconut yoghurt and ice cream. Decadent, thick, creamy & silky smooth for the whole family to enjoy. Coco Tribe was founded by Tedy Altree-Williams and is an Australian family-owned and operated business located in Marrickville, NSW. Coco tribe has been supplying specialty treats to the local community and Sydney’s leading chefs and restaurants for over a decade now.
Tedy grew up in a Lebanese family where great food is a lifestyle. Much of her childhood was spent around the table with an abundance of delicious foods. This childhood sparked Tedy’s dream of a world in which luscious dairy-free alternatives are available at every corner store. Tedy also believes that every member of the family should be able to enjoy the taste, texture and richness of yoghurt, without the dairy, additives and preservatives.
Tedy has a degree in science and worked in pharmaceutical sales for many years and was at a conference in Christchurch New Zealand when the 2011 earthquake hit. This was the shakeup Tedy needed to bring her dream to a reality and she started her business later in 2011, producing Dairy ice cream before expanding into coconut ice cream in 2012. In 2013 Tedy started making coconut yoghurt for other brands under contract. Then in 2016, Tedy had the opportunity to start her own brand and Coco Tribe was born.
Tedy has two favourite ways she recommends to eat Coco Tribe Yoghurt. In the morning for breakfast, Tedy mixes the yoghurt with some fresh berries, chocolate protein powder and a spoonful of peanut butter or tahini. The other way is a dressing made with yoghurt, tahini, salt and lemon juice, this dressing works particularly well with roast vegetables, and grilled fish or on a salad. Tedy says her children particularly like the Chocolate yoghurt tahini cake that she bakes.
