FullyLoadedTea Expands into the US and Announces New Distribution Partner

Consumers across the United States will soon be seeing their favorite FullyLoadedTea blends on even more grocery store shelves. Luxury tea company, FullyLoadedTea (FLT), is pleased to announce the company’s expansion, having secured distribution into the US market with Kehe Food Distributors.

Kehe Food Distributors is a leading US distributor of more than 40,000 natural and specialty food products to more than 15,000 retail outlets in 49 states, as well as Mexico and the Caribbean.

“We are thrilled to be a part of Kehe Food Distributors’ roster of specialty gourmet foods,” says FLT’s President and Co-Founder Katya Popoff. “This is an exciting step for our company and we look forward to expanding our market presence and growing sales as we prepare to take the US market by storm.”

FullyLoadedTea will be showcasing their bold, unique tea blends at the Kehe Foods Holiday Show at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago on July 26 and 27. The event gives retailers and vendors a first-hand opportunity to source exciting new products, and puts FullyLoadedTea in front of key purchasers and contacts. FullyLoadedTea’s award winning blends will be available to sample at booth #565.

Since launching in 2007, the FullyLoadedTea brand has become wildly popular, growing sales by more than 400 percent in 2008 and delighting devoted tea drinkers across North America with its signature blends like Goji Force Green Tea, Bulletproof Currant Fruit Tea, and Citrus Spiked Black Tea. FullyLoadedTea has become the “tea” darling of the music and entertainment industry, due to their involvement and growing presence at high profile events including the Primetime Emmy® Awards, SXSW Film Festival, and L’Oreal Fashion Week.

“We get such a thrill when we see orders come through from artists and celebrities we’ve had the privilege to meet,” say FLT founders and sister duo Popoff and Olga Lenova. “It is exciting to see the FullyLoadedTea brand grow, attracting new loyal drinkers, and repeat customers ordering their favorite blends time and time again.”
