VANCOUVER , Feb. 27, 2019 /CNW/ – Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV; OTC: KBEVF) (the “Company” or “Koios“), is pleased to announce it has signed a vendor agreement with Walmart Inc, the world’s largest retailer.
Walmart Inc. (WMT) (“Walmart“) is a multinational retail giant that operates a chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery stores across the globe.
Walmart has more than 11,200 stores operating under 55 banners in 27 countries around the world. It has eCommerce websites in 10 countries. Each week, nearly 265 million customers and members shop at Walmart.
“Working with the world’s largest retailer is an honor,” said Koios CEO Chris Miller. “Walmart has begun carving out significant shelf space in select locations to build the next generation of better-for-you brands, and we are truly excited to be one of them. Making the world a healthier place is our mission and our relationship with Walmart will be a tremendous catalyst for reaching a mass audience for our brand.”
Koios developed a proprietary nootropic formula that has been shown to enhance brain function, including mental focus, memory, and concentration. Its formula includes superfoods such as lion’s mane mushroom, which contains bioactive substances with beneficial effects on the body, brain, heart, and gut. The Company produces the formula as a line of healthy, organic beverages and drink powders.
Launched last year, the Koios brand had been carried primarily in several health store chains, and various grocery chains until December when GNC – the largest health and wellness company in North America – initiated a vendor partnership.
Now, Walmart will soon be adding the Koios beverage line to its new functional beverage set. Initially, Koios products will be available in 1,094 Walmart locations across the United States . The retail giant will carry Pear Guava, Blood Orange and Peach Mango beverages. The products will also be available through Walmart’s online portal at www.walmart.com and will be available in stores April 1 st of 2019.
Miller continues, “The vendor agreement is a pivotal development for a Denver -based startup that has become a standout in the functional beverage industry.”
Koios has been rapidly expanding its production capacity and its distribution network across Colorado and more widely across the United States . The Company works in the fast-growing ‘functional beverage’ space.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company.
