Adds Washington, Arizona, and New Mexico for Doc Wylder's Distribution
WATERLOO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 11, 2021 / SponsorsOne Inc., (CSE:SPO)(FRA:5SO)(OTC PINK:SPONF), a company that utilizes its proprietary platform that combines digital marketing, wholesale and retail distribution, branding, and operational & funding capital, giving it a competitive first-mover advantage in rapidly growing its proprietary brands focused in the Alcohol, Functional Beverage and Hemp Sectors, announced today it had executed distribution agreements to cover Washington State, Arizona, and New Mexico to complete the distribution coverage within the Western USA.
Myles Bartholomew, CEO of SponsorsOne, said: "This now completes our footprint for the Western and Eastern United States, locking up distribution to many thousands of retail locations. Order flow is very robust into these Distributors, and we expect to see Doc Wylder's on the shelves of retailers late May to early June".
The IWSR, the most trusted, accurate, and widely used source for beverage alcohol trends in the world, stated in a November 2020 press release:
"The Ready-to-Drink (RTD) Sector was the Only Category to See Growth in 2020. Low- and No-Alcohol Segment will Continue to Resonate with Consumers In terms of specific categories, only the ready-to-drink (RTD) sector will see volume growth this year (+43%), largely driven by strong performance in the US, which is the largest RTD market in the world by volume. Global consumers have shown a propensity for refreshing, flavourful and longer-to-consume drinks, which bodes well for RTDs. The category is also well suited to the off-premise, which further boosted its popularity during lockdowns. RTDs are expected to post volume gains of +21.8% compound annual growth rate 2019-2024, stealing share primarily from the beer category. In the US, the RTD category will be bigger by volume than the spirits category by the end of this year."1
From flavor to function, the RTD category, including hard seltzers, is growing as consumer demand for convenience is growing at an ever-increasing pace. Driven by factors such as wellness, cocktail culture, quality ingredients, premiumization, daytime, and outdoor consumption RTDs have evolved to capture key consumption trends.2
While currently, the top three markets make up over 70% of global RTD volumes, emerging markets are quickly scaling up to keep pace as younger generations demand on-the-go products that don't compromise on taste."3
As the Company completes its USA distribution footprint, we will begin establishing distribution in top markets worldwide. Discussions have already commenced in Canada and Mexico. In addition, discussions are starting with additional Co-Packers allowing us to move closer to the distribution channels reducing shipping costs well-scaling volume to meet demand.
