Canada's largest independent food and beverage brand management company, Leading Brands Inc, has signed a multi-year license agreement with PEZ Candy of Orange, Connecticut, for the design, manufacture and distribution of PEZ-branded Juice Drinks throughout the US and Canada. Leading Brands will create a package for the juices incorporating elements of PEZ, the sweets known for their famous dispensers. The preservative-free drinks will be targeted at eight- to 14-year-olds, addressing what Leading Brands perceives to be a gap in the market.
