LOS ANGELES, Oct. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosa Foods, the makers of Soylent, announced today that two of their Ready-to-Drink flavors will now be offered in an 11 oz Tetra Pak, available in a 4-count multipack. The new packaging will retail in both Walmart and Target, which will enable the brand to reach the masses in this rapid expansion in thousands of Walmart and Target locations. The new offering marks a significant step in expanding Soylent's accessibility footprint, bridging the gap between their single bottle and 12 pack offerings.
"Offering single bottles via our retail partners was a significant step in expanding our availability to consumers. We've had great success in retail this year, gaining distribution in over 12,000 outlets to date and looking to pass the 15,000 mark by the end of 2018. With this fruitful expansion, we've been able to open the doors to develop a multipack, giving consumers the right package for the right needs in the right channels," says Melody Conner, Sr. Vice President of Sales. "We're very excited to give our loyal users and new consumers a chance to access our products more conveniently than ever before."
This latest move stems from the demands of Soylent consumers, providing them with a sensible, pantry load item and delivering on the brand's promise of filling food voids. Understanding consumer behavior was paramount to launching this product. "60% of our users consume 1-6 bottles per week so it was an opportunity for us to provide a new package type that filled a need state for both our retail partners and the consumers," says VP of Brand Marketing, Andrew Thomas.
Target and Walmart have been key supporters in Soylent's massive retail expansion and approximately 4,000 outlets will place Soylent 4-count multipacks on shelves in Q4. This new packaging option was a direct result of the success the current 14oz Soylent Singles Serve has enjoyed as well as the need for a multipack take-home option in retail. The move will increase Walmart's availability from 450 to 1900 locations and will launch Soylent in Target at 1450 locations. The multipack will be offered in Soylent's top-selling flavors Cacao and Cafe Vanilla.
