The water producer Tropical Beverage has agreed to acquire the exclusive rights to a complete line of nutritionally enhanced waters (NEW).

The company said it would be taking over the marketing and distribution of products in the NEW line including but not limited to NEW Calcium.

It said it plans on expanding the offering transferring the technology to some of its other products.

"The NEW products represent some of the most innovative we have seen over the past few years," said Chris Lotito, CFO for Tropical. "By adding them to our offering we have a strong foundation as we begin to focus more on our own brands and higher returns for our investors. We feel that this addition greatly improves our stable of products and we look forward to expanding the line," he added.

Tropical Beverage manufactures and distributes a line of value-added beverages, including pure spring waters, flavoured waters and vapour-distilled waters.
