Core-Mark, Westlake, Texas, will distribute the bottled water to the Long Beach, Calif.-based convenience-store chain’s locations.
“Alkaline88 will launch in late August or early September in over 400 United Pacific, Rocket-branded c-stores. United Pacific is a market leader in California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado,” said Ricky Wright, president and CEO of The Alkaline Water Co. “The c-store channel remains a focus for us in fiscal 2022. We expect to see a significant increase in volume and revenue from this relationship.”
Alkaline88 is made with an 8.8pH balance and two ingredients: purified water and pink Himalayan rock salt. The brand was developed with a smooth taste that encourages consumers to drink more and fully hydrate, the company said.
Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Alkaline Water's flagship product Alkaline88 is available in 75,000 stores across the United States. Its brands also include A88 Infused and A88 CBD.
