-- Anaheim, CA – At this year's Natural Products Expo West Sweet Leaf® Tea, maker of delicious, premium organic and all-natural iced tea beverages, is giving retailers and consumers exactly what they want ― quality and convenience. Offering the company’s signature flavors in both 16 oz. glass bottle 6 packs and 64 oz. PET bottles, Sweet Leaf® Tea’s combination of premium drinks in attractive on-the-go packaging options provide added value for both retailers and their customers.
With organic tea having grown +21% in 2011 (Nielsen, 52 weeks 12/24/2011), and Sweet Leaf® Tea at the forefront of producing beverages with top of the line organic ingredients, it is no wonder why Sweet Leaf® Tea is out-pacing category growth 12 to 1 (U.S. Organic Food Market Analysis, September 2011). As part of the company’s mission to meet shopper needs, Sweet Leaf® Tea is offering its 16 oz. glass bottles in 6 packs in the Original Sweet Tea, Mint & Honey Green Tea, and Citrus Green Tea flavors. These will also be available in the 64 oz. PET bottle packaging. All together, these packaging options make for an ideal choice for grab-and-go consumption from the nearest supermarket aisle, to the convenience store fridge and everywhere in between.
“At Natural Products Expo West we are looking to help retailers meet the demand for high quality, all natural, ready-to-drink tea in packaging options that make sense for both them and their customers” said Sweet Leaf® Tea Brand Marketing Manager Charla Adams. “We’re the only great-tasting, organic ready-to-drink tea on the market with multi-serve and multi-pack options in fun flavors that consumers want to see on the tea aisle.”
The Natural Products Expo West will take place from March 9-11, 2012 at the Anaheim Convention Center, located at 800 W. Katella Ave., Anaheim, CA 92802. The Sweet Leaf Tea Company will be exhibiting at booth #2922. For more information on Sweet Leaf® Tea, visit www.sweetleaftea.com.
