LOS ANGELES — Koia, the naturally cravable, plant-based protein beverage, today announced its distribution into 400 Walmart stores in 14 states, including California, Texas, and Florida. Koia’s original flavors, Vanilla Bean, Cacao Bean, Coconut Almond as well as newer introductions, Cold Brew Coffee and Cinnamon Horchata, are available at select locations across the country.
Koia’s expanded distribution footprint provides consumers with easy access to high quality, plant-powered nutrition and on-the-go energy with the perfect combination of protein, healthy fats and fiber. Every bottle of Koia delivers nine essential amino acids for a complete plant protein source and features its hallmark 5-to-1 protein to sugar ratio. The high-protein, low-sugar functional beverage can be found now in the refrigerated section of Walmart.
“Our goal is to provide consumers with the best-plant-based option that is readily available,” said Chris Hunter, Koia’s Co-Founder and CEO. “With more and more households already consuming non-dairy products and looking to reduce their sugar intake, we are thrilled to provide Walmart customers with a superior option. As Koia continues to grow in the conventional space, including our recent footprint in H-E-B, Fred Meyer and Publix, we are living by our mission of bringing clean, conscious, and delicious plant protein to people everywhere.”
In September 2018, Koia debuted its new Fruit Infusions line to satisfy consumer demands for a fruit-based portfolio that is low sugar and provides the benefits of real fruit and superfoods. The Los-Angeles based brand has already surpassed its anticipated $10MM run rate for this year and and is now sold in nearly 4,000 stores across the country.
