LOS ANGELES, March 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reed’s, Inc. (NYSE:REED), the leading maker of craft sodas nationwide announced today they are introducing the first ever all natural Soda Fountain for retailers to be able to dispense their natural sodas. This groundbreaking development will be featured and demonstrated at this week’s Natural Products Expo West show in Anaheim, California at Reed’s Booth #3657.
Chris Reed, Founder and CEO of Reed’s, Inc. stated, "Fountain sodas are one of the primary ways soft drinks are sold. They offer retailers and restaurants the greatest economic upside being up to 80 percent less expensive than ready to drink bottle/can soda. Many restaurant chains are committing themselves to remove GMO’s, artificial ingredients, sweeteners, colors and flavors out of the foods they are selling to their consumers. Simply put, restaurants all over the country are backing ‘clean food’ concepts due to consumer demand. We have spent over two years developing and crafting the best, all-natural 'Bag in the Box' fountain soda flavors in the industry today. The soda flavors being offered include our top selling Reed's Ginger Brews and Virgil's sodas, along with other new and exciting natural full calorie, mid and low calorie flavors. Just about every new restaurant concept introduced to the market today is centered on healthy, better-for-you delicious food. Now these next generation restaurant concepts can have a fountain soda that matches the natural gourmet food attitude.”
