Kirin Holdings has purchased a minority interest in US-based functional brain health beverage company Nawgan Products.


Kirin's investment in the company will be used to fund growth initiative plans across North America," Kirin said yesterday (24 August). Kyowa Hakko Bio, the maker of the key ingredient in Nawgan's Cognizin beverage, is a part of the Kirin Holdings Group.

No financial details of the deal were disclosed, nor was the size of the stake specified.

"It is our great honour to be part of this opportunity and be able to provide a new value for the ever-evolving health drink market in the US through profoundly unique Nawgan products," said Kirin Holdings' CEO, Senji Miyake.

Available in Red Berries Caffeinated, Berry Non-Caffeinated and Tarocco Orange Caffeinated, Nawgan is said to contain natural ingredients, and reduced calories. The product is currently available at around 300 stores across the greater St Louis region, including Walgreens, Straub's Fine Grocers, Dierberg's Markets and Shop'n'Save.
