With an in-house sales team of approximately 40 representatives, Green Spoon is one of the largest natural foods brokers in the United States. Green Spoon has direct access to buyers and retail stores representing thousands of points of sale in 20 U.S. states, including locations of Whole Foods and Sprouts. Green Spoon is to introduce both KOIOS™ and Fit Soda™ functional beverages to new retail outlets in markets throughout the country as the Company endeavours to expand its market share in the functional beverages category.
DENVER and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 05, 2020 — Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV; OTC: KBEVF) (the “Company” or “Koios”) is pleased to announce that its KOIOS™ and Fit Soda™ beverage products (collectively, “Koios Beverages”) will be represented in 20 U.S. states by Green Spoon Sales (“Green Spoon”), one of the largest natural foods brokers in the United States. As the Company continues to introduce Koios Beverages into new markets across the country, Green Spoon’s national reach could be instrumental to the growth of the Company’s footprint in the functional beverages category. Founded in 2012, Green Spoon has an in-house sales force of approximately 40 representatives who can commercialize Koios Beverages alongside leading brands of natural food and beverage products. Through its business relationships with grocers specializing in natural foods, Green Spoon can introduce Koios Beverages to stores in well-known chains to include locations of Whole Foods Market Inc. (“Whole Foods”) and Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (“Sprouts”).
Koios is a Denver-based producer of functional beverage products including KOIOS™, a nootropic beverage created to improve focus and mental clarity, and Fit Soda™, an all-natural caffeine-free carbonated beverage providing “Benefits with Bubbles”. Koios Beverages are currently sold in more than 4,400 retail points of sale in the United States. In addition to an online presence on Amazon.com and the U.S. online store of Walmart, Koios operates its own e-commerce portal which has more than 60,000 customers and subscribers. The Company recently announced that two flavours of its Fit Soda™ beverage would be carried in more than 100 HEB supermarket locations in Texas. With new representation for Koios Beverages by Green Spoon, the Company intends to expand the availability of its products at the national level by potentially entering new markets across the United States.
Collectively, Green Spoon’s network of retail stores and corporate buyers provides access to several thousand stores in which Koios Beverages can be sold, including locations of Whole Foods and Sprouts. To optimize products’ performance at the store level, Green Spoon’s field representatives provide in-store supervision on behalf of brand clients to ensure products are positioned and merchandised to a high standard. Green Spoon routinely showcases its field initiatives on its social media channels (pictured below), which can provide enhanced online visibility of products such as KOIOS™ and Fit Soda™ as emerging brands in the natural food and beverages space.
Koios Chief Executive Officer Chris Miller commented, “Commercializing functional beverage products such as ours relies heavily upon building a memorable and compelling first impression among potential first-time users who encounter the product in-store. The size of a distributor or broker’s network is important, but market share is something that is ultimately gained at the store level. As such, we consider Green Spoon’s ‘boots on the ground’ in 20 U.S. states to be an important part of their value proposition as we seek to build brand recognition for Koios Beverages, prompt trials, and encourage repeat purchases. Green Spoon has earned its excellent reputation by taking a hands-on and passionate approach to bringing natural food and beverage products to retail in several markets in the United States. We are excited to be working with Green Spoon to build upon our current momentum in bringing Koios Beverages to store shelves throughout the nation.”
