Schilling Distributing acquires Streva non-alcohol portfolio

RC Cola and other popular brands will now be sold exclusively by Schilling in Acadiana

LAFAYETTE, LA.; August 1, 2013 – Beginning on August 16th, Schilling Distributing Company, Inc. will become the exclusive distributor of non-alcohol brands previously handled by Streva Distributing Company in Iberia, St. Martin, Vermilion and St. Mary Parishes. This includes brands such as RC Cola, Diet Rite, Crush and Sun Drop. These brands are currently already being sold by Schilling in Lafayette, Acadia, St. Landry and Evangeline Parishes. This will be the first time Schilling has distributed products to St. Mary Parish since 1996. Schilling has been serving Iberia, St. Martin and Vermilion Parish since 1950 and is a member of the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce.

Since its launch in 1905, Royal Crown Cola has been a soft drink that embodies individuality and entrepreneurial spirit. RC's crisp, clean taste distinguishes it from other colas and has become a favorite of cola drinkers throughout America. RC is available in Cola, Diet, Cherry and RC 10.

Diet Rite was introduced in 1958 by the Royal Crown Co. as the first diet soft drink. With this revolutionary introduction, health-conscious soft drink lovers were finally given a choice consistent with their lifestyle - a great-tasting cola with no calories, sodium or caffeine. Diet Rite is available in Cola, Cherry and White Grape.

Other brands included in this agreement are: All-Sport, Big Red, Crush, Country Time Lemonade, Sun Drop, Squirt and Welch’s.
