Voltz Distribution UK has appointed Estrela Iberica Technologies as its sole distributor for the Voltz energy shot health drink in Portugal.

The deal marks the beginning of the European roll-out of the popular energy drink first launched in the UK earlier this year, the company said today (11 September).

"The energy drink market is very new in Portugal," said Greg Brownlee, director of Estrela Iberica Technologies.

"We anticipate the introduction of such a new and exciting concept like Voltz will prove particularly popular and we are therefore delighted to become Portugal's sole distributor for Voltz."

"The active ingredients in Voltz are a healthy complex of B Vitamins, playing a key role in energy production by breaking down carbohydrates, proteins and fat," said Rob Arnold, CEO of Voltz Distribution UK.
