Clearly Canadian has added three extra distributors to increase its US footprint.

The Canadian soft drinks company said yesterday (22 February) that DTM Distributing will cover the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, while Folsom Distributing will be responsible for St. Louis, Missouri and the surrounding area. Palmentere Brothers Distributing, meanwhile, will be responsible for the greater Kansas City area.

"The power of our brand name and quality of our products continue to benefit our sales efforts to more efficiently and profitably put in place a first-class distribution network for our products," said Clearly Canadian's president, Brent Lokash.

Already this year, the company has secured distribution for the state of New York through Big Geyser, and in Chicago with Central Beverage Corp.

Included in the Clearly Canadian portfolio is Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and Monster energy drink.
