Launch of award-winning US brand will catapult BevCanna into a leadership position within the Canadian cannabis-infused beverage space
VANCOUVER, BC, August 9, 2021. Emerging leader in innovative health and wellness beverages and products, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV, Q:BVNNF, FSE:7BC) (“BevCanna” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first commercial production run of #1 selling US beverage brand Keef Brands1 (“Keef”) cannabis-infused beverages for delivery to select provincial distribution boards across Canada.
As the #1 grossing cannabis beverage company in the US, Keef Brands is known internationally for its top-quality cannabis-infused beverages. Canadian consumers have been eagerly awaiting the launch of Keef’s top selling Classic Sodas in Canada, generating strong interest from the provincial distribution boards in orders for the popular brand.
“This inaugural run of Keef represents a significant milestone for BevCanna,” said Melise Panetta, President of BevCanna. “We’re launching in multiple Canadian markets and are excited to be including this already well-known and loved cannabis brand among our first offerings. We expect that Keef will take a leadership position within the Canadian cannabis-infused beverage space.”
Keef Brands develops, produces, and distributes an assortment of cannabis-infused lines, including Classic Sodas, in more than 1,000 licensed retailers and delivery services across seven US states and counting.
BevCanna announced a bi-lateral partnership with Keef Brands earlier this year to launch the company’s products across Canada. Through the agreement, BevCanna will also be able to leverage Keef’s extensive US manufacturing and distribution network to launch their own line of products into the US, in the event of positive federal regulatory reform.
