SodaStream is the leading manufacturer and distributer of home beverage

bottle and over 150 flavor options. The consumer fills the bottle with

make the final flavored beverage.

Initial flavors for the V8 Splash products will include Tropical
Blend, Berry Blend and Fruit Medley, as well as V8 V-Fusion
concentrates in Strawberry Banana, Pomegranate Blueberry and Peach Mango
varieties. The products are expected to be available during the second
quarter of 2013. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“Creating V8 Splash and V8 V-Fusion products through the
popular SodaStream carbonated beverage system gives people another way
to enjoy their favorite V8 beverages and brings new growth for
Campbell’s beverage business,” said Michael Barkley, Campbell’s Vice
President and General Manager, Beverages.

“We are excited to bring together our revolutionary beverage system with
a respected company like Campbell, who is well-known for their iconic
brands,” stated Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream. “This relationship
demonstrates our commitment to providing innovative products, and we are
confident that the addition of the delicious V8 Splash and V8
drinks to our product portfolio will further strengthen the
appeal of SodaStream’s many benefits. We believe this partnership will
help us attract new consumers who already enjoy these brands but have
yet to discover how smart, simple and empowering it is to be able to
make great tasting carbonated V8 beverages at home.”
