Well Canada, Canada’s leading cold-pressed juice and super food beverage brand, announced the launch of a new co-branded label with Co-op.
“As a major grocery chain in Western Canada, Co-op was the perfect partner for Well to work with,” said Well Co-founder and CEO Zack Lister. “Co-op was looking to add to its CO-OP GOLD PURE line of private-label products, and we loved the fit with Well’s mission to offer only the best health and wellness-related products.”
Co-op Gold Pure products offer natural and healthy options for any lifestyle and cover a range of food and cleaning products. The co-branded label will launch with five cold-pressed juices, three flavours of kombucha and a cold-brew coffee.
“These beverages are a perfect fit for our Co-op Gold Pure line-up, which is based on clean and simple ingredients, produced locally in Western Canada whenever possible,” said Sav Bellissimo, Store Brands Manager for Federated Co-operatives Limited, which develops private-label products for Co-op Food Stores.
Well’s partnership with Co-op will see optimum growth benefit for the company, increasing production volumes and media exposure through a fall campaign, in which one of Well’s manufacturing facilities will be showcased.
“We’ve been excited about the launch of this co-branded label with Co-op and the ability to bring the highest-quality, wellness-based juices to the mainstream Canadian market,” Lister added. “Co-op has been a great partner in this initiative, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
The new co-branded juice line will be available at over 200 Co-op Food Stores across Western Canada.
