Sipp Sparkling Organics today announced that, beginning in March, four of the brand’s varieties will be carried by 1,200 Target stores across the U.S.

Sipp also inked distribution deals with Dora’s Naturals and H&H Specialty Food Associates and completed a new round of investment.
Sipp founder and CEO Beth Wilson-Parentice described Target’s customers as “looking for better-for-you options for themselves and for their families with high quality ingredients and great taste,” and noted that “it’s fantastic to see large brands like Target excited about Sipp.”
