VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emerging leader in innovative health and wellness beverages and products, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV, Q:BVNNF, FSE:7BC) (“BevCanna” or the “Company”) announces today that it has entered into an agreement to manufacture and distribute white-label cannabis beverages for Averi Health Products (“Averi”).
Averi is a new adult alternative beverage company founded by Terry Donnelly, creator and former CEO of the award-winning Hill Street Beverage Co. With millennials choosing to consume 20 per cent less alcohol than their parents’ generation, Averi is focused on creating cannabis and hemp-infused adult beverage options for those consumers who desire alternate beverage options, without compromising on taste, complexity, sophistication, or social experiences.
Drawing from a library of more than 6,000 flavours and more than three years of research and development, Averi creates sophisticated classic cocktails that replicate both the flavour profile and mouth feel of the world’s best-selling cocktails, but with zero alcohol content.
Averi will launch a portfolio of cannabis-infused beverages into the Canadian market. Averi is employing BevCanna’s white-label partnership model, which allows non-licensed partners to enter the Canadian cannabis market seamlessly and compliantly. Averi will leverage BevCanna’s extensive experience in producing beverages at scale as well as its sales license partnership for distribution to Canadian provincial buying groups. The white-label agreement is subject to MOQs (minimum order quantities).
“Averi is a great example of this next generation of beverage creators that are coming to BevCanna to bring their cannabis-infused concepts to life,” said Melise Panetta, President of BevCanna. “Our white-label program gives these brands confidence that their beverages will be produced to the highest quality standards and widely distributed through our extensive Canadian network.”
