SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Mar 27, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Zola Acai, the world's first Acai Power Juice and the best selling single Acai drink in the natural foods channel according to the SPINS market research firm, has been Certified Organic by QAI as of December 2006. All three Zola flavors -- Acai Original, Acai + Pineapple, and Acai + Blueberry -- now carry the USDA Organic seal.
"Zola has always used 100% organic Acai and being officially certified as organic reaffirms our commitment to sustainable harvesting and to the preservation of the Amazon rainforest. It also lets our customers know that all three of our flavors are from 100% unfiltered, organic Acai," said Chris Cuvelier, Zola Acai's founder and president. "In addition, organic beverages experienced a 97 percent sales increase over the last five years, and sales are estimated to reach over $2 billion by 2011. Given this tremendous category growth, we see our own organic certification as a very positive development for Zola."
Zola Acai is made from 100% unfiltered pulp of organic, antioxidant-rich Acai berries and infused with energy-sustaining Guarana powder, giving consumers health and power in Amazon-sized quantities. Zola is available in three flavors: Acai + Pineapple, Acai + Blueberry, and the newly renamed Acai Original. They are available in 11-ounce singles, and in 12-pack cases for bulk purchases, both of which ship in newly updated packaging.
