The Alkaline Water Company is beginning international distribution in Canada through a non-exclusive partnership with R&M Royal Palms Beverage. Based in Langley, B.C., R&M will distribute Alkaline88 and A88 Infused products to retail chains throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.
R&M will market and sell the company’s brands to premium retailers and sub-distributors across all channels including supermarkets, independents, big box, convenience, e-commerce, health and fitness and natural grocers.
“As a result of continued growth in the United States and successful expansion into Mexico, we are now accelerating our growth into Canada,” said Ricky Wright, president and CEO of the Alkaline Water Company. “We’ve found a great Canadian partner in R&M Royal Palms Beverage that will enable us to continue our international expansion. They have a leadership team with extensive experience in the beverage industry and a focus on independent ‘better-for-you’ beverage brands. They also have a network of thousands of stores, as well as e-commerce and home delivery platforms, and will market our brand to tens of thousands of other potential clients. Through R&M’s efforts, we look forward to introducing Deliciously Smooth Alkaline88 and A88 Infused to Canada. Sales meetings have already been set and we are excited for our first entry into the Canadian markets.”
“Alkaline88 is the most exciting and innovative water to hit the market in a long time,” said Michael Gerstner, CEO of R&M Royal Palms Beverage Company. “We believe that Alkaline88 will open an entirely new platform in the water category. The water’s alkalinity and the Himalayan salt, plus the clean crisp refreshing taste will excite the Canadian market and bring some long-awaited growth to the category. It’s a pleasure to bring Alkaline88 to market in Canada.”
