SDS, Reily Foods Create Strategic Partnership

Sparkling Drink Systems International (SDS) has signed a letter of intent with Reily Foods Company to create a strategic partnership to produce a range of branded coffee and tea pods with New England brand coffee, French Market brand coffee and Luzianne brand tea.

The two companies will launch a global line of iced, milk and water based coffee pods in addition to sparkling and still iced tea pods. The pods will be co- developed exclusively for use with BE, SDS’s new generation of “all-in-one” appliances and portable beverage products that use a patented powdered technology.

According to officials with both companies, the partnership builds on BE’s existing coffee and tea portfolio.

At the 2015 International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago, SDS introduced the V350 at-home beverage maker. The unit allows the consumer to make any kind of drink, whether hot, cold, sparkling or still, according to the company.
