The company has a special presence in the Saint Louis area. The city is also the home of The Anheuser-Busch Brewery, the largest brewer and one of the nation”s most admired companies.
“We started our company Funktional Beverages, Inc. (The manufacturer of Purple Stuff) with the help of Anheuser-Busch House, General Distributing of Utah when Purple Stuff was four days out of its first production run. It is that relationship and the love affair consumers have with our great tasting drinks, that have brought us to the very heart of Anheuser- Busch.”says Randy Traver Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Funktional Beverages, Inc.
The Lohr Distributing family of employees has maintained the highest quality of service to retailers consistently in St. Louis for decades. The Lohr relationship with the city of Saint Louis also runs deep. The Lohr family is always taking active roles in improving the quality of life in this remarkable city.
“We are proud and humbled that the Lohr family thinks so much of our new brand. The taste wins everybody over, but the due diligence done making sure all ingredients are FDA GRAS approved is something many other companies have missed. Purple Stuff being the leader of the relaxation category niche, was only part of what Lohr liked about the product. Purple Stuff also is the only product that scaled out into sodas, healthy sodas, vitamin sodas and focus categories. The Lohr distributing Company sees that this product has the potential to go mainstream. We will make sure that their trust in us does not go unanswered, as we have with our foundation from General Distributing in Utah, to all the other companies that have joined us in our quest to have the most loved soda by consumers… wherever it is found on retailers shelves,” says Darrell Duchesneau CEO and Co-Founder of Funktional Beverages, Inc.
