It has been sold throughout much of the Caribbean by Global Beverage Enterprises Inc. Now, it has signed a deal with Goya Foods Inc. to distribute it in the United States, Canada and Spain as well as increasing the island market by extending into Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
Global Beverage, founded in 2003, also has developed Kool Cow Sparkling Dairy Drinks, a shelf-stable, milk-based sparkling dairy beverage line.
