Lone Star Distribution, specialty distributors of fitness and health supplements, enters into distribution partnership with COCOZIA 100% Organic Coconut Water
Epicurex LLC, the manufacturer of 100% Organic Coconut Water COCOZIA , has announced a distribution partnership with Lone Star Distribution to distribute the natural beverage throughout United States (with the launch slated for Florida). According to Paul Kilbride, VP of Sales, Lone Star Distribution will be “hugely beneficial” to COCOZIA moving forward. Coconut water has long been heralded for its superior health and hydrating benefits for extreme fitness and endurance athletes. In recent years, coconut water has been touted as the newest health trend by medical and fitness professionals. WebMD.com states, “Low in calories, naturally fat- and cholesterol free, more potassium than four bananas, and super hydrating – these are just a few of the many benefits ascribed to America’s latest health craze: coconut water.
“We need a distribution partner that shares similar values to our own,” said Paul Kilbride. “At the same time, we want a partner that’s well-established with solid retail connections. Taking all of that into account, we believe COCOZIA will be an excellent fit in the family of products that Lone Star distributes.”
Founded in 1998, Lone Star Distribution has grown to become the nation’s second largest distributor of sports nutrition, health & wellness supplements, beverages and bars nationally and internationally. Over the years they have developed relationships with over 6,000 gyms, health clubs, nutrition stores, online stores and specialty retailers nationwide. Their expansive network will allow Epicurex to strategically target the national health and fitness marketplace for COCOZIA.
The agreement comes just as Epicurex is gearing up for a major push into the global coconut water market. In recent months the company has been solidifying its lineup of distributors which include KeHe and United Natural Foods. Both companies are known for distributing organic and all-natural products across their expansive retailer networks in the United States.
“It’s been an exciting time for COCOZIA and Epicurex as a whole,” said Paul Kilbride. “Working with new distributors and new retailers that share our philosophy of providing only quality and healthy products to customers in the U.S.—it’s a great opportunity to collaborate and grow our products and networks.”
Epicurex LLC is a manufacturer and distributor of exotic beverages. The company focuses on bringing unique organic products to its customers, all while providing only top grade products that taste great and contribute a lot to a healthy lifestyle.
