The Long Island Iced Tea Corp. the specialist ready-to-drink (RTD) tea company in the US, has announced that Oak Beverages Inc. has agreed to distribute ALO Juice® which the Company recently agreed to acquire. This is the first new distributorship for the ALO Juice® brand since the announced acquisition by the company in December.
Philip Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “We are thrilled to announce the first new distributorship for the ALO Juice® brand since we announced our proposed acquisition earlier this month. We are committed to building this brand and expanding its distribution in the future.”
“Beverages such as ALO Juice® carry a functional claim that is a strong fit as Oak Beverages expands into the non-alcoholic arena. We are very excited to be ALO Juice®’s distribution arm in New York” said Manuel P. Bustos, General Manager of Oak Beverages.
ALO Juice® is a non-alcohol ready-to-drink (NARTD) functional beverage made from juice derived from the aloe plant known as aloe vera. ALO Juice® sources its aloe plants from harvests in Thailand. The plants are exported from there to South Korea where they are processed in a unique whole leaf manner to ensure the nutritional and health benefit are maintained from the plant all the way through to the bottling process. ALO Juice® is packed in 0.5 litre and 1.5 litre bottles, with a wide variety of flavours including Original, Mango, Pomegranate, Pineapple and Raspberry.
