Chicago, IL (August 17, 2015) – Protein2o Inc., manufacturer of the nation’s top selling low-calorie, high protein waters, is pleased to announce today the brand’s Australian market expansion via an exclusive distribution agreement with Direct Brand Distributors.
The partnership will bring Protein2o products to Australia through the Direct Brand distribution channel; Direct Brand Distributors are a leading distributor of beverage and grocery products through multiple sales channels within Australia. The unique positioning of the Protein2o brand, combined with Direct Brand Distributors’ strong distribution network in Australia, represents a strong strategic fit for both parties.
