Koia To Launch Coffee Line at Whole Foods in January

Aiming to expand its products across the refrigerated beverage set, plant-based protein drink maker Koia will launch a line of ready-to-drink coffees next month exclusively at Whole Foods stores nationwide. Koia Coffee contains 200 mg of caffeine, 5 grams of MCT oil, 9 grams of protein, zero sugar and 110 calories per 12 oz. bottle.

Distribution: Gains for Koia, Picnik

Planet-based protein drink Koia adds six new retailers and debuts a new reduced price point, Austin-based cafe Picnik launches its RTD butter coffee at Whole Foods, and JUST Water lands an exclusive partnership with the Houston Zoo.

Koia Announces $7.5M Fundraise

As part of the round, Bill Moses, co-founder of probiotic beverage brand KeVita, which was acquired by PepsiCo last year, will join Koia’s board of directors.
