Brooklyn, NY — ITO EN (North America) Inc. announced its partnership with food industry redistributor Dot Foods, which will expand less than truck load availability of its popular brands, including matcha LOVE, TEAS’ TEA Organic and Oi Ocha, to distributors nationwide. Dot Foods has a streamlines business model, removing large minimum order requirements. The partnership will make ITO EN’s products available to order for both large- and small-scale food distributors across multiple sectors that include foodservice, supermarket, convenience and drug. Customers outside of key retailers can also place orders within a two-day turnaround at a one-case minimum, making the products accessible to more niche retailers and restaurant establishments.
“ITO EN is committed to increasing the accessibility of better-for-you beverages across the United States, and we never want the order size to determine a distributor’s ability to share our products with their customers,” said Jim Hoagland, COO of ITO EN (North America) INC., in a press release. “With Dot Foods, we’re welcoming all distributors in the food and beverage industry – from mom and pop shops to unique restaurant concepts and more – to offer our innovative products to diners and shoppers alike. We admire Dot’s commitment to broadening the availability of better-for-you beverages and simultaneously supporting our company growth as a leader in the natural products industry.”
