Deep Ocean Water leader Kona Deep will significantly expand distribution points in New York and Southern California
KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (March 13, 2018) — Kona Deep Corporation, the Hawaii-based bottled water company, today announced that it has signed long-term strategic distribution agreements with Big Geyser and Haralambos Beverage Company in order to fuel its rapid expansion.
Both partnerships were signed in late December. In New York, the Big Geyser partnership will cover the five boroughs of NYC, Westchester, Putnam, Nassau and Suffolk counties. In Southern California, the Haralambos partnership will cover distribution throughout Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, Kern, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo Counties.
Patrick Turpin, Chief Executive Officer of Kona Deep and also the former Co-Founder & President of popchips, commented, “Big Geyser and Haralambos are by far the strongest distributors in their respective markets, both with a track record of exceptional execution with many iconic brands. These two partnerships enable us to bring this new category of deep ocean water to the New York and Southern California markets in a significant way.”
About Kona Deep
Kona Deep represents a completely new category of water: deep ocean water replete with a unique blend of naturally occurring deep ocean electrolytes. Kona Deep is sourced from the deep ocean waters of Hawaii, 3000 feet beneath the ocean surface, where cold, pressure and natural minerals combine to create an exceptionally high-quality water. Once brought to the surface, the water is desalinated and bottled at the source with absolutely nothing added.
After launching in Hawaii in late 2015, Kona Deep has recently expanded onto the U.S. mainland where the demand for premium waters and performance waters is growing rapidly. Hawaiian deep ocean water offers consumers both the purity of a trusted natural source and the performance benefits of naturally occurring deep ocean electrolytes. Kona Deep is sold primarily in leading grocery and natural food stores.
