The Coca-Cola Co has purchased a minority stake in cold-pressed juice maker Suja Life LLC.
Terms of the investment have not been disclosed at this time.
Suja has sold more than 40 million bottles of its organic juices thank in large part to a process known as High Pressure Processing which helps preserve nutrition and taste.
Coca-Cola said its investment will give Suja access to its chilled distribution network, which delivers Odwalla and Simply to stores throughout the United States.
The world’s largest soda manufacturer will help Suja boost manufacturing to meet demand for its products.
With a strong supply chain and procurement network now at its disposal, the company can expect to purchase bottles and caps at a lower cost.
No further details have been released at this time.
