BevCanna Signs Agreement to Further Expand Distribution of TRACE Products through U.S. Independent and National Retailers
Deal with Benefit Brand Management, leading U.S. wholesaler of natural products will introduce the TRACE brand to a rapidly expanding demographic
Emerging leader in innovative health and wellness beverages and products, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CNSX:BEV, OTCMKTS:BVNNF) is pleased to announce that it has finalized an agreement with leading North American brand and sales management firm Benefit Holdings LLC, dba Benefit Brand Management. The contract will see Benefit distribute BevCanna’s TRACE line of products to a wide range of U.S. retailers, from independent natural and specialty retailers to national big box retailers, initially in New York, Chicago and California.
The new partnership, which will be enacted through BevCanna’s previously announced agreement with leading U.S. water bottler Riviera Beverages, will accelerate the expansion of the Naturo Group portfolio of market-leading ancient organic mineral beverages, under the TRACE brand into the U.S. market.
With demand for wellness-focused beverages rapidly increasing among U.S. consumers, this is the ideal time to introduce the TRACE brand to a whole new demographic. We’re very excited to work with Benefit on launching the brand, capitalizing on their extensive network and detailed knowledge of the natural products retail landscape in the U.S.Melise Panetta, President of BevCanna
