New Jersey-based soft drinks maker Bai Brands has extended a partnership with Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPSG) to distribute its low-calorie Bai 5 brand across the US.

Bai Brands, which has worked with DPSG in “select” markets for the past two years, said yesterday (19 November) that the new deal will place Bai 5 in “most major (US) markets”. Listings include Jewel-Osco, Stop & Shop and around 100 Costco stores throughout the country.

Ben Weiss, founder and CEO Bai Brands, said: “Every day we get phone calls and letters from consumers in cities where Bai is not yet on the shelf. Our relationship with Dr Pepper Snapple Group will allow us to rapidly roll out Bai to new markets and into the hands of those consumers.”

Bai 5, which contains five calories, is infused with coffeefruit and flavoured with fruit juices. Bai Brands was formed in 2009 and is based in Princeton. 

Last month, DPSG CEO Larry Young said he was “shocked” by the decline in diet soda sales in the US and said consumers needed educating about aspartame.
