Boston, Mass. (November 30, 2015) – DRINKmaple, a premium plant-based beverage consisting of just one ingredient – maple sap – has announced its expansion into multiple leading grocery retailers including Ahold Stores in the east coast, which includes Stop & Shop, Martin’s Food Markets and Giant Food Stores, Wegmans in the northeast, H-E-B in Texas, and Whole Foods Market (WFM) in the Southwest. Additionally, DRINKmaple continues to establish its international footprint in the United Kingdom (UK) and Australia. Furthering these recent distribution gains, the brand expanded into the WFM UK region, increasing its presence to three WFM regions in total.
In its first WFM region, North Atlantic, where it hit shelves in 2014, DRINKmaple’s sales have grown a significant 1800% in the last year, a testament to high consumer demand and consistent repeat customer base. DRINKmaple is now available in more than 2,000 stores nationwide with further expansion on the horizon.
“Since launching the business less than two years ago, we have experienced overwhelming reception to the brand and loyalty to our product,” said Kate Weiler, co-founder and CEO of DRINKmaple. “This expansion allows us to get our premium productinto the hands of more and more health-conscious consumers who are seeking healthy, natural hydration made right here in the U.S. With this growth, we remain committed to educating our customers through in-store demos and showing high volume in the locations we are in. It’s a busy and exciting time for us.”
Offering 46 naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, antioxidants and prebiotics, DRINKmaple was founded upon the hope that people of all lifestyles enjoy the unprecedented benefits of DRINKmaple. Today, the functional drink serves as a superior alternative to other hydration beverages that import their ingredients from halfway around the world or are created artificially in a lab.
In addition to grocery retailers, DRINKmaple is available in natural food stores, fitness studios, and select restaurants and cafes. It is also available for purchase online at drinkmaple.com and Amazon.com, offering consumers the convenience of delivery direct to their door.
