About Fundy Drinks Ltd.
Fundy Drinks is an Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia-based better-for-you sparkling beverage company. The Company operates in the consumer-packaged goods (CPG) industry and currently sells its beverage products in the Canadian market. Founded in 2018, the Company is currently scaling rapidly across Canada with plans to enter the US market in 2021.
The Company’s first product line, VIVEAU, was created to fill a significant gap in the market. Fundy Drinks’ founders, Ted Grant (Michelin Star Chef) and Hanspeter Stutz (founder of the award wining Grand Pre winery in Atlantic Canada) identified a gap in the market for a full-flavored sparkling water that contained only real ingredients without added sweeteners or preservatives. Working with only Candian farmers, the Company developed a perfectly balanced sparkling beverage that contained both fresh-pressed fruit and mineral water. Flavored from the orchard, and not the lab, VIVEAU’s unique 50/50 blend of sparkling mineral water and fresh-pressed fruit is of the highest quality on the market..
