INKO’S ALL-NATURAL, LOW-CALORIE/NO-CALORIE BOTTLED WHITE TEAS INTO 2500 ADDITIONAL WALMARTS
Inko’s LLC, the first beverage company to bring low- and no-calorie ready-to-drink (RTD) white teas to the consumer marketplace, today announced its expansion into 2500 Walmart stores nationwide jumping from a 200 store test in the first quarter of 2013 to 783 stores in July to the current number today.
The further expansion into the world’s largest food retailer and grocer fits within the 10-year-old Company’s simple corporate strategy and mission statement to provide an affordable, ready-to-drink, great-tasting healthy-tea choice to as many people as possible.
“Go into Walmart today and there are more healthy choices than ever,” said Andrew Schamisso, founder and president of Inko’s Teas. “We’re certainly proud to be one of those choices.”
Schamisso continues: “What’s particularly interesting is that if you told me our number one selling tea in Walmart was an unsweetened mint tea, I wouldn’t have believed it. However, indeed our number one and two selling flavors in Walmart are our Original and Unsweetened Mint teas, which are our first two entries into the marketplace more than 10 years ago.”
In addition to Walmart, Inko’s can be found in such mass-market retailers as Safeway, Stop and Shop, Giant Carlisle, Rite Aid, Publix, Supervalu, Dierbergs, Fairway, Martins, Foodtown, Tops, Wegmans, Albertsons, Bristol Farms and Sunflower Market and are also offered in health-conscious corporate break rooms through WB Mason.
Since beginning in 2002, Inko’s has supported via marketing and demo programs such smaller, local natural markets as My Organic Markets in Maryland; Westerly Market in NYC; Tunies and Richards Whole Foods in Florida; House of Nutrition in Luzerne PA; New Seasons in Portland, OR as well as a host of other stores and food co-ops across the Country and in Alaska and Hawaii.
