DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / June 28, 2018 / NEW AGE BEVERAGES CORPORATION (NASDAQ: NBEV), the Colorado-based organic and natural healthy functional beverage company dedicated to making a difference for consumers with better-for-you alternatives, today announced the distribution expansion of its Búcha Live Kombucha brand nationally with Shell Canada.
- New Age's Búcha Live Kombucha brand, which has more than quadrupled since coming into New Age's system, is leading the category growth and expanding worldwide
- Búcha Live Kombucha's preferred taste profile and shelf-stable formula is facilitating the brand's distribution expansion across all channels and leading sales throughput
Since inception in 2016, New Age Beverages has developed a portfolio of better-for-you beverages that includes XingTea®, Búcha® Live (organic) Kombucha, Marley® (coffee, cold brew, relaxation drinks and organic yerba mate), Coco-Libre® (coconut waters and sparkling coconut waters), and a number of impending products for the medical channel through their Health Sciences Division. As a result, the Company has become the 54th largest non-alcoholic beverage company, one of the largest healthy beverage companies, and the fastest growing in the world over the past two years.
New Age's Búcha Live Kombucha brand has a unique and proprietary production process that results in a preferred taste profile, no vinegary aftertaste like most other kombuchas, no refrigeration required because of its shelf stability, and an industry leading 12 months of shelf life. As a result, Búcha is one of the only brands to be able to penetrate the convenience and other independent channels of distribution.
Craig Thibodeau, President of International for New Age Beverages commented, "This is another major deal for New Age, and we are extremely proud that we have gained the new distribution expansion with Shell Canada. Búcha® Live Kombucha, has now rolled out to over 590 new sites with Shell across Canada. This level of growth is unprecedented, as New Age's portfolio is resonating with retailers and addressing their healthy product diversification needs. New Age's portfolio is also resonating with consumers, addressing their desires for healthier, and, better-for-you options. As a result, sell-through and consumer offtake has been excellent, and is leading to even more expansion for our brands."
