PureWhite ® combines the restorative benefits of coconut water with sauvignon wine grapes and Lulo, an amazing South American superfruit, to offer both an exceptional taste and coconut water experience that appeals to mainstream beverage drinkers.

Designed by the Company's in-house research and development team and produced in the Company's own high speed bottling plant, the Pures™ are being distributed through mainstream grocery, health and natural food stores in Canada. During the past year the Company re-established its distribution network along the West Coast of the United States, supported by a large national health and natural foods distributor. Consequently, the Pures™ are now on the shelves of most major health and natural foods stores in Washington, Oregon and California, with broader retail expansion in the works.
