(CSE: KBEV;OTC: KBEVF) (the "Company" or "Koios"), is pleased to announce that the Company has increased its production capacity by partnering with Full Metal Canning, located in Longmont, CO, in addition to its current partnership with Golden Global Goods, the parent company of Rocky Mountain Soda.
Reserved for Issuance: 27,137,596
The new partnership grants the Company access to Full Metal Canning's high-volume production line, ensuring the functional beverage manufacturer can produce a lower minimum amount of product at any given time, while simultaneously achieving the same cost-effectiveness which could otherwise be gained through mass production.
The partnerships with Full Metal Canning and Golden Global Goods will provide the Company with the available use of two canning lines in their local Colorado market. This not only allows Koios to produce twice the amount of product but it also provides for a much more rapid pace at which orders are fulfilled.
Forming these partnerships came as a result of the Company securing purchase orders with two of the largest retailers in the world, thereby increasing its retail footprint by 4,000 locations since February 2019. Chris Miller, Founder, and CEO of Koios further explains, "This allows us to stay incredibly adept and flexible when producing our line of beverages. This advantage makes us especially unique in the beverage space as we can produce on demand without investing large sums of capital into excess inventory. This allows our team to increase its focus on marketing and consumer awareness, which is pivotal in a brand's success. Furthermore, the relationship with Full Metal Canning is a monumental first step towards investing in further infrastructure, including our own, wholly-owned canning line."
With the new Full Metal Canning partnership in addition to our existing partnership with Golden Global Goods, the Company can now produce up to 15,000 cases per week; moreover, this rate of production allows for the following:
Reduced lead times;
Reduced upfront costs;
Creates added efficiency in COGS (Cost of Goods Sold);
Greater control over the production process; and
Warrants the Company to fine-tune and adjust flavors as needed.

Koios to Start Production on its 'Fit Soda'™ Line and Release Additional Flavors
Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV;OTC: KBEVF) (the "Company" or "Koios"), is pleased to announce it will officially start production in April 2019 on its functional Fit Soda ™ line. In addition to the production launch, Koios will be releasing two new flavors to accompany its existing flavors, Orange Creamsicle, and Root Beer Vanilla Float.
A functional beverage is a drink augmented with nutrients, supplements, or both to provide a health benefit to the consumer. Examples of functional beverages include sports and performance drinks, ready to drink (RTD) teas, and nootropic beverages sometimes known as 'smart drinks.'
"We are incredibly excited to finally be releasing Fit Soda™ to the public," said CEO Chris Miller. "It has been a multiyear project, and it allows us to take advantage of a paradigm shift happening in the natural and organic food space. Our own experience and analysis show that consumers are demanding healthy clean label products that also allow you to indulge simultaneously. With millennials driving trends, including food, we believe this product will resonate with fitness enthusiasts and millennials."
Fit Soda™ has zero sugar, electrolytes will be made naturally, and infused with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).
Of the nine essential amino acids, three are BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. "Branched-chain" refers to the chemical structure of BCAAs, of which are found in protein-rich foods such as eggs, meat, and dairy products. They are also a popular supplement sold primarily in powder form.
According to Grocer.com1: "Consumers are actively seeking moments that make them feel good – they are looking for indulgent experiences and brands must seek to enrich these demands by appealing to the senses. Indulgence has traditionally been considered frivolous, but that is changing as more and more people want memorable foods and drinks they can take pleasure in without feeling guilty."
The Fit Soda™ line is the second phase of the Koios product launch that began in early 2018 with the production of the Company's line of nootropic beverages intended to increase mental focus and acuity. The Fit Soda™ line is generally focused more on physical well-being, featuring blends that offer high levels of nutrients, amino acids, and electrolytes.
The Company started pre-selling Fit Soda™ at its announcement in September 2018.
Miller said, "The reaction from buyers and the market has been tremendous. We anticipate Fit Soda™ penetrating 80% of our retail footprint within the first 120 days of being available. It allows us to add value to our existing partners and customers without ancillary marketing." Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce the additional release of two new Fit Soda ™ flavors expected in Q3 of 2019: Black Cherry Cola and Sparkling Citrus. Koios Beverage Corp secures purchase order with Walmart; to supply 1,094 locations across the US https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/koios-beverage-corp-secures-purchase-order-with-walmart-to-supply-1-094-locations-across-the-us-829713912.html VANCOUVER, Feb. 27, 2019 /CNW/

Its formula includes superfoods such as lion's mane mushroom, which contains bioactive substances with beneficial effects on the body, brain, heart, and gut.
