Beverage brand moves to cans
The PoP Shoppe announces an exclusive partnership with Cott – the world’s largest retailer brand beverage company– to launch the first-ever line of PoP Shoppe canned sodas. Cott will oversee production and distribution of the sleek cans across Canada, bringing the premium sodas to high-profile grocery and convenience chains.
Designed to complement The PoP Shoppe’s iconic glass bottles, the retro can line includes four additions to the PoP Shoppe’s flavor lineup – Psychadelic Strawberry, Big Time Banana, Omazing Orange n’ Cream and Got the Blues Raspberry. Packaged in 4-pack cartons, the cans are also available in four of The PoP Shoppe’s classic flavors, with a twist - Lime Ricky, Radical Root Beer, Groovin’ Grape and Crazy Cream Soda.
“We are thrilled to partner with such an iconic Canadian brand, and to be introducing an exciting, new range of PoP Shoppe products to a new generation of flavor-seeking Canadians,” says Dave Stewart, general manager for Cott Canada.
“The PoP Shoppe has enjoyed a very successful return after a long absence, and we are thrilled that Cott is launching our first-ever can line,” says CEO Brian Alger. “PoP Shoppe fans will appreciate the sleek design of these cans, as well as enjoy the refreshing taste of our new flavors. We are also excited to be reaching millions of Canadian consumers through the Cott distribution network.”
