Aqua Vie Product Well Received at FMI Trade Show

Aqua Vie Beverage Corp. (Ketchum, ID) will begin shipment of the its Hydrator product line from the company's bottling facility in France to distributors in Israel, Saudi Arabia and China. Domestic distribution from the company's bottling facility in California is slated for the first week in June.

Tom Gillespie, founder and president of Aqua Vie, said that the company experienced a highly favorable and powerful response to the introduction of the new Aqua Vie package designs and shrink labels at the recent international Food marketing Institute Show and that the company expects to enter into a number of additional agreements as a result of its attendance at the show.

According to Gillespie, the company's single-serve, all-natural Aqua Vie Smoothie products— in tropical raspberry and peach flavors, packaged in 12-oz PET bottles—are expected to be launched domestically during July, along with the company's E-Line and its non-alcoholic wines being made available on the company's web site at

"While California, New York and Florida, followed by Texas and the southwest, are Aqua Vie's first launch targets, we expect phase-in to occur rather rapidly over the summer, escalated by a number of large, multi-regional distribution agreements," said Gillespie.

Aqua Vie Beverage produces all natural, lightly flavored, non-carbonated bottled spring water. The company's line of beverages include the Hydrator, E-Line, Elixir, Empower, and Ecstasy.
