CORONA, CALIF. — Sports Pouch Beverage Co. Inc. recently made its first deliveries of one of its product lines to the Albertsons chain of supermarkets.
"We are pleased that Albertsons has elected to carry the Wild Mist Fortified Water brand that we co-pack for By Quinn International, owner of the Wild Mist brand," said Gil Arvizu, president of Sports Pouch. "The initial order of 3,500 cases of the Wild Mist product will be stocked in Albertsons West coast stores and represents 112,000 individual Sports Pouch packages.
"Albertsons is the second-largest grocery chain in the United States and we are pleased to begin offering one of our Sports Pouch-packaged products in their stores."
The Sports Pouch packaging system features an 8-oz flexible pouch comprised of three layers of plastic and aluminum film laminated to a custom fit, push-pull spout. This packaging system offers many advantages over the traditional PET plastic water bottle, especially convenience of storage and use and ease of disposal. In addition, the Sports Pouch brand is exempt from the California C.R.V. levy imposed upon beverages in traditional plastic and glass bottles or aluminum cans.
