LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2012) - Reed's, Inc. (NASDAQ: REED), maker of the top-selling sodas in natural food stores nationwide, announced today the introduction of its new, organic Reed's Culture Club Kombucha into natural foods and mainstream supermarket channels, initially targeting the west coast, with the rest of the United States shortly thereafter. Kombucha is a natural food industry phenomenon and is significantly larger than the natural soda category. Reed's Culture Club Kombucha will be introduced in four, ginger based formulas: Goji Ginger, Cranberry Ginger, Lemon Raspberry Ginger and Hibiscus Grapefruit Ginger.
Chris Reed, Founder and CEO of Reed's, Inc., stated, "Over the last year we have engaged some of the best kombucha brewing experts within the industry today to help us co-develop what we consider to be the best, raw organic kombucha on the market. Each flavor extension is enhanced with our trademark fresh ginger root, the finest organic specialty teas, fresh pressed juices, spices, all brewed in spring water. We really out did ourselves with the creation of the new packaging and design, which should generate significant product trial."
