The new placements follows the company’s announcement in July that Sipp had gained distribution at over 100 locations of The Fresh Market.

Skyr smoothie makers B’More Organic are making their debut on the West Coast. The brand’s six flavors – Plain Skyr, Banana, Mango Banana, Vanilla, Caffe Latte and newly unveiled Strawberry – are entering over 1,000 new stores through partnerships with retailers including Kroger’s Lowes Foods, and Harris Teeter.

Panera Bread has added Harmless Harvest, Blueprint Juice and craft soda brand Joia to its beverage offerings nationwide, three months after releasing a “No No List” of 150 ingredients that the company has removed or plans to discontinue from its offerings.

Health-Ade kombucha is expanding its availability at Whole Foods, entering the grocer’s Southwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. To assist with the expanded distribution the company has brought on beverage industry veteran Ned Desmond as East Coast Director of Sales.
