AWARE Beverages Inc. III: Line Extension
AWARE Beverages Inc.
AWARE Beverages Inc. (“AWARE”) is a Toronto based company run by 3 partners. One of their premiere brands is SoCIAL LITE Vodka. The SoCIAL LITE Vodka coolers are low calorie, full-flavoured alcoholic beverages. There are currently 5 SKUs on the market; Lime Ginger, Lemon Cucumber Mint, Pineapple Mango, Lemon Ice Tea, and Grapefruit Pomelo. George Brown College’s Food Innovation and Research Studio (FIRSt) is collaborating with AWARE on new product line extensions for their vodka-based coolers.
