Zola partners with Statewide to fuel distribution growth

 Zola, the makers of beverages powered by plant-based ingredients, announced that it has signed a distribution deal with Statewide Beverage Company to continue distribution expansion of the brand’s Plant-Powdered Hydration beverage portfolio.

"We spent the past year building out a new team, updating the Zola brand and creating innovative plant-powered hydration beverages. Statewide Beverage Company is a strategic sales partner that will accelerate the launch of our new items, fuel distribution expansion, and tell our brand's story to a broader audience," says Zola CEO and founder, Chris Cuvelier
