Wize Monkey Set To Make Waves At Natural Products Expo West

Monday, February 27th 2017 @ 11:29 AM

The highly celebrated Vancouver-based Coffee Leaf Tea Company, Wize Monkey are excited to make their official debut in the US market at the Natural Products Expo West (March 8th – 12th) in Anaheim, California. Having won the “Emerging Specialty Food Product of the Year” award at the Specialty Food Expo and Conference earlier this month, the team are thrilled to announce that they are up for a New Hope NEXTY Award at Expo West.

Wize Monkey is thrilled to have the opportunity to personally introduce their innovative tea products to friends and fans south of the border at Expo West, and look forward to growth in the US market and beyond. Wize Monkey’s Vancouver-based co-founders Max Rivest and Arnaud Petitvallet will reunite with Nicaraguan partner Enrique Ferrufino to share their collective passion for sustainable production, social innovation, and crafting high-end flavor experiences.
Thus far, 2017 has already seen a progressive increase in Wize Monkey’s distribution across Canada with an additional 130 retailers now carrying their unique selection of coffee leaf tea in stores. This BC-born success story (who launched their Coffee Leaf Quest documentary) shows no signs of slowing down, having recently inked a national deal with Whole Foods Markets ensuring shelves are stocked with all five unique flavours of Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea at their 12 locations across Canada.
“Going to Expo West as a NEXTY Award finalist is very exciting, we look forward to sharing our historic innovation with the best retailers in the US.”  - Max Rivest, CEO / Co-Founder
