SodaStream is the leading manufacturer and distributer of home beverage
carbonation systems, which transform tap water into sparkling water and soda.
The system includes a soda maker, a CO2 carbonator, a reusable bottle and over
150 flavor options. The consumer fills the bottle with water, adds CO2 to make
the bubbles, and then adds syrup concentrate to 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 V-Fusion 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.”
