Published 22 November 2016

Long Island Iced Tea, which operates in the ready-to-drink tea segment of the beverage industry, has received its first purchase order from Food Lion.

Long Island Iced Tea will be available in all Food Lion locations, representing over 1,000 stores across the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states, by early December in both 20 ounce and gallon bottles.

This is the largest partnership in the Company's five-year history and the second major partnership for the Company in the Southeast.
