New Leaf Brands, a wholly owned subsidiary of Baywood International, Inc., announced that a new distributor, New Age Distributing in Little Rock, AR, has begun distributing its New Leaf Tea through a network of retailers including Doublebee’s Exxon, Knight’s Super Foods, LRAFB Shoppettes, USA Drug, as well as numerous other independent accounts.

“We brought in New Leaf because of its superior packaging and taste. During the kick-off we have been impressed with how professional, informative and knowledgeable the New Leaf team has been. They provided product specialist support rarely seen from the larger beverage companies, helping our team drive to launch the product,” stated Rick Davis, Sales Manager at New Age Distributing. “We were pleasantly surprised and encouraged when we sold out the first truckload of product within the first week. We look forward to continuing our early success and building a long-lasting relationship with New Leaf.”

“We are building on the momentum of gaining widespread distribution of New Leaf in the Midwest and are excited to be working with New Age Distributing in the Southern United States through Central Arkansas. Given their strong track record with major brands such as 7-Up, we are confident that we have chosen the right partner to build our brand through a wide network of retailers and independents,” commented Tim Brown, Vice-President of Sales Midwest for New Leaf.
