Solana Beach, CA. September 13, 2016—The Big Beverage Company along with Cuipo, the innovative social enterprise working to protect and preserve the world’s endangered rainforest one square meter at a time, is pleased to announce our partnership with Accent Food Services to expand Cuipo Water distribution throughout the state of Texas.
“The success of Cuipo Water is very important in our overall vision of saving the rainforest through our non-profit One Meter at a Time Foundation and having Accent Food Services as our partner will enable us to successfully accomplish our goal in Texas,” said Tom Murray, CEO of Cuipo LLC. “There is a sense of urgency to preserve the rainforest, every second one football field of rainforest is destroyed.” The rainforest cools the planet, sequesters greenhouse gases and purifies air, soil and water. They nourish biodiversity and shield wildlife.
“We are thrilled to partner with Accent Food Services,” added Jean Terminiello of The Big Beverage Company. “Cuipo’s patented technology to save the rainforest, coupled with a 100% Recycled PET bottle resonates with millennial consumers and a whole new green generation who prefer to support products and companies that care about their impacts. Like Cuipo, Accent Food Services is committed to supporting a healthy lifestyle and their strong presence in the Texas market provides the reach we need to serve our loyal consumers in the food service sector.” John Christian, Chief Marketing Officer of Accent Food Services, remarked that “Cuipo Water provides a unique offering in our otherwise broad healthy options and Pick Fit™ vending solutions. We are excited to meet the pent up demand for Cuipo and we look forward to growing Cuipo Water’s presence in the Texas market.”
Cuipo’s rapid national expansion comes on the heels of its recent launch at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago. Cuipo Water was recently recognized with a Beverage World BevStar Award and is available in several thousand food service, lodging and at work outlets on the west coast, parts of the northeast and is currently expanding throughout the U.S.
