BOSTON, MA (June 17, 2015) – DRINKmaple, an organic, non-GMO, plant-based beverage with just one ingredient – maple sap – is pleased to announce its partnership with Rainforest Distribution, a wholesale distribution company focusing on food and beverage delivery to natural and specialty stores in the New York metropolitan area. By establishing this partnership, DRINKmaple has hit the shelves of over 100 stores in New York, including popular specialty grocery store Fairway Market.
“We were drawn to Rainforest Distribution’s unique mission to go beyond the role of a typical distributor by forming true partnerships with their customers and sharing a distinct passion for brand building,” said Kate Weiler, co-founder of DRINKmaple. “We look forward to growing our presence in this region and are excited that, with the help of Rainforest, New Yorkers will get to experience the brand.”
Boasting 46 naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, antioxidants and prebiotics, DRINKmaple is naturally low in calories, sugar, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, kosher and free of GMOs. The sap is obtained by sustainably tapping the trunks of American-grown maple trees on USDA-certified organic family-run farms in Vermont. Once harvested, DRINKmaple sets the industry standard, boasting a 36-hour “tree to bottle” experience in an effort to preserve the sap’s freshness, quality, taste and nutritional benefits. It is then transported in sterile containers to a nearby bottling facility to undergo a non-altering pasteurization process that ensures the beverage’s original minerals and nutrients remain intact.
In its first full year in business, Boston-based DRINKmaple has expanded distribution from 20 retailers in the Greater Boston area, to more than 1,200 stores throughout the Northeast, New York City and Philadelphia. The brand has plans expand into the Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas markets in summer 2015.
