Alkaline Water Co. Expands Distribution into Hawaii

sD6qV-UYSCOTTSDALE, AZ–(Marketwired – Jul 16, 2015) – The Alkaline Water Company Inc.(OTCQB: WTER) (the “Company”), developers of an innovative state of the art proprietary electrolysis beverage process packaged and sold in 500ml, 700ml, 1-liter, 3-liter and 1-gallon sizes under the trade name Alkaline88, today announced entry into a key direct to store distribution (“DSD”) agreement with Hawaii-based Triple T Corporation (“Triple T”).

As part of the agreement with the Alkaline Water Co., Triple T Corporation will act as exclusive direct to store distributor (DSD) for the entire Hawaiian region. Triple T has successfully secured distribution agreements with 7-11 of Hawaii (convenience) and Foodland (grocery), the largest operators in their respective categories across the island chain.

In June, Triple T Corporation’s President and CEO, Mr. Kaui Kauai placed an order for 12-containers (approximately 15,000 cases) of product. Subsequently, 7-11 of Hawaii positioned Alkaline88 in 500ml and 700ml sport-cap in all its stores statewide and it is reported that several stores have already sold through their initial inventory.

Furthermore, Triple T has purchased radio ads beginning in July which will run through the busy summer season. The company anticipates favorable results from both the radio campaign and an ongoing grass roots and social media marketing strategy targeting both locals and tourists. These efforts, combined with the unique geographical challenges the islands present, has led Triple T to further their reach by engaging a number of sub-distributors in order to maximize product placement efforts across the region.

“I have an extensive and successful business history with the great State of Hawaii and am delighted to have the opportunity to work with the committed and enthusiastic team at Triple T,” states Steven Nickolas, Company CEO. “The agreement provides that Triple T pick up our product direct from our state-of-the-art co-packing facility at UNIX Packaging, Inc. of Montebello, California. Working with a visionary distributor who understands the trending importance of our product, especially in a sunshine state visited by millions of tourists every year, combined with near zero shipping costs for us, is a win-win for all concerned and we are really looking forward to growing a great, long-lasting relationship together.”
