Zavu Expands Distribution Throughout the Northeast

MIAMI — Your chance to try the hottest new juices in the market has just significantly increased. Pioneering the undiscovered tastes of superfruits Caju, Acerola and Cupuaçu, ZAVU joined forces with Rainforest Distribution to expand its footprint in the Northeast of the U.S.

“We launched ZAVU in New York City. In only a few months, consumer feedback has been amazing. People are curious about these new superfruits and they are excited to try our juices.They love that the juices are organic. All we needed was a large-scale distributor to expand our reach. We found that partner in Rainforest,” said Shayne Malone, founder of ZAVU.

What the fruit?!

Bold and uniquely flavored, the ZAVU juices are staples of Brazilian cuisine going back hundreds of years. They are certified organic, good for you and deliciously tropical. Every ZAVU bottle contains over 100% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C – which is helpful because our bodies don’t produce vitamin C on their own. Here is more on each fruit:

  • Caju
    It grows on cashew trees in the Northeast Coast of Brazil and is usually discarded in the nut-harvesting process. It looks like an apple, but it is soft, sweet, and tangy on the inside. The locals mash it up to create a super-healthy and invigorating juice.
  • Acerola
    It’s one of nature’s most concentrated forms of vitamin C. Acerola is a cherry-like fruit that grows abundantly in arid, Northeastern Brazil.
  • Cupuaçu
    It is a creamy, sweet fruit with a delightful hint of chocolate. Cupuaçu is a relative of the cocoa family. It grows in the Amazon rainforest, where locals break the fruit open to enjoy an energizing, caffeine-free snack or drink.

Rainforest Distribution is a full-service food and beverage distributor committed to supporting the growth of natural and organic foods throughout the Northeast. With an extensive sales and merchandising network, Rainforest adds value through its expertise in perishables, local and emerging brands, and the execution of first-to-market concepts.
