Packaged-water company extends distribution
A local packaged-water company is expanding its distribution network.
Grand Rapids-based Boxed Water said last week it signed with Sacramento, California-based Saccani Distributing Co. to expand its distribution in northern California.
Boxed Water initially launched its California distribution in Los Angeles and San Diego last September.
"California is one of our strongest markets," said Matt Merson, VP of sales, Boxed Water. "Our new relationship with Saccani, expanding distribution of Boxed Water north to Sacramento, shows that people are motivated by a better choice in packaged water."
Boxed Water provides consumers with water in recyclable paper cartons.
Boxed Water was launched in 2009 and has partnerships with a variety of retailers, including Meijer, Target and Whole Foods.
The company has packaging facilities in Michigan and Utah.
