Coffee fruit beverage pioneer KonaRed to move into powdered beverage pods

Hawaii-based coffee fruit beverage maker KonaRed has teamed up with at-home carbonation expert Sparkling Drink Systems International (SDS) to develop a line of powdered beverage pods.

The pods will be exclusively for use with Viberation, SDS' new At-Home Carbonation appliances , which don’t require CO2 cylinders.

The KonaRed / Viberation co-branded beverage range is expected to include original Hawaiian CoffeeBerry, Organic Green Tea and Coconut Water flavor pods and be available in the United States in late 2014.

KonaRed, which launched its first products in 2011 and became a public company in 2013, recently teamed up with Splash Beverage Group to sell and distribute its products across the US.
