Jay Barrow, Chief Brand Officer at New Age commented, “The rollout of Marley Cold Brew is a huge benchmark in what has become a complete transformation of the Marley brand since its acquisition last year. The brand is now completely rebuilt with an identity and iconography that resonates with the more than 70 million loyal Marley Facebook followers. The talent and capabilities behind the Marley brand are extensive, and this is only the beginning of what will become a very impactful brand-building campaign.”

From 2015 to 2017, RTD Cold Brew Coffee grew 460% representing a significant opportunity for the Marley brand, given its relevance and equity already established in the coffee space.

Brent Willis, Chief Executive Officer noted, “We recently financed the Company to be able to produce these new products just to keep up with growing demand. We are excited to see the response from retailers, distributors, and consumers on the new initiatives. We acquired the Marley beverage portfolio with a clear vision, and it’s exciting to see our investment pay off with the revenue growth opportunities we always knew were there.
