EVERY STORY HAS A BEGINNING....
Ours began through the power of social media. A mom of two in Houston, Texas and a fun loving business woman in Johnsonville, South Carolina who were brought together by a friend request on Facebook. Two women bonded by their love of life, God, health, entrepreneurship and supporting others in the pursuit of their passions. A connection that despite 1100 miles apart grew into a friendship and eventually into a business partnership.
Hey! I'm Janna DeCamps, a simple southern girl who loves God, her family & friends, being on the water in the summer, and football in the fall. Coming from a family of small town doctors, I have always wanted to make a difference. However, my core beliefs were more centered around health and preventing illness instead of treating sickness. My entrepreneurship spirit and desire to help people led to my first health and wellness business at the age of twenty-two. Through my business, I encouraged people to take a more holistic approach to their health and provided personal growth and motivational training to thousands of people. When I learned about coconut oil and it's incredible health benefits, I felt compelled to share this superfood with everyone. I start every morning with a cup of coffee with two tablespoons of coconut oil and end my day by hydrating my skin with coconut oil mixed with a little frankincense essential oil and I love to use lavender essential oil mixed with coconut oil to help me relax.
Hi, I am April Williams, a mom of two beautiful boys. I live in the Houston area with my hubby of 18 years and after spending many years in corporate America as an executive and legal assistant I discovered my love of entrepreneurship 13 years ago and am now a full time business coach. My journey to a healthier lifestyle came about when my oldest son was diagnosed at the age of two with an autism spectrum disorder (PDD-NOS). His diagnosis led me down a rabbit hole to be more educated about the toxins in our food and environment. I became extremely passionate about living a more holistic lifestyle for me and my family and choosing safer, more natural organic options. I discovered coconut oil and fell in love with its many benefits for the body. We use it to soothe my son's eczema and as a coffee junkie I love to use it in my morning and afternoon coffee. I am an introvert who thrives around those who are pursuing their passions, self worth and authenticity. I am an HGTV junkie, a country girl at heart who loves camp fires, Michael Bublé and a good Moscato.

Our mission is to inspire others to join our journey and enrich their own lives by taking a more holistic approach to life. We believe in nourishing the mind, body and soul. Our vision is to uplift, educate and provide others with the encouragement and resources they need in order to optimize their enjoyment of life.

Together, we discovered what we believe to be the highest quality coconut oil on the market and wanted to share it with others who love to pursue a life of wellness and happiness as much as we do.
When we founded Coco Calla we knew God was calling us to serve by using our business to bless others. After lots of praying and diligence, we have decided to partner with Convoy of Hope.

COCO CALLA FUN FACTS....
Who is Coco Calla?
We are based in the United States and as part of our passion for life, health and wellness, we also import raw coconut oil from the enchanting country of Thailand.
Where does our luxurious coconut oil originate from?
While most coconut oils on the market are massed produced in the Philippines, Sri Lana or Vietnam, Coco Calla is unique because it comes from a small organic farm next to the Gulf of Thailand. The proximity to the sea infuses our coconuts with higher levels of beneficial vitamins and minerals, making it one of the healthiest oils you can use. We strive to bring you the enchantment of Thailand in every jar of our nutrient enriched coconut oil.
What sets Coco Calla apart from other brands?
To deliver the guarantee of bringing you the highest quality coconut oil, we pay attention to every detail of the entire process starting from where the coconuts are grown to how they are processed.
Our coconuts are grown on an organic Thai farm located near the sea. This allows the coconut palm to absorb more vitamins, minerals and nutrients through its roots. One of the keys to ensure the production of the highest quality coconut oil possible is our rapid workflow, which makes Coco Calla a leader in freshness. We use only hand-harvested coconuts and advanced technology to ensure the shortest amount of time from the moment the coconut is cracked open to filling the oil in BPA-free recyclable glass jars. Under hygienic conditions and constant quality controls the fresh coconut flesh is first cold pressed, then filtered. Followed by a sophisticated, centrifugal process, the oil is extracted from the freshly pressed milk and finally bottled.
The entire process is done gently and carefully within hours of harvesting, without any chemical additives so that the freshly pressed coconut oil remains as natural as can be. This preserves the natural composition of oil and guarantees the high content of vitamins, minerals and medium-chain fatty acids. Thus providing you with the freshest, richest, unrefined cold pressed, organic extra virgin coconut oil.
Is coconut oil just another health fad?
As two women who have been using coconut oil for years, we certainly don't think so! With the increased awareness around health and wellness, coconut oil is one of the most versatile products on the market. With its endless uses and many health benefits, coconut oil is much more than just a short-lived Hollywood trend. Its a staple item to keep in your home and pantry and an investment in your over all health and well-being.
