SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jun 02, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Clearly Kombucha®, one of America's leading kombucha brands, announced today that it is entering the Northern California regional grocery chain, New Leaf Community Markets. This expansion marks the company's second announcement of increased distribution in California in two weeks.
"California is kombucha country and is at the forefront of the category's growth. As the state responsible for producing most of the country's food, Californians care deeply about their food and place a high importance on organics. We are delighted to have been selected by New Leaf Community Markets to serve Northern Californians with an authentic, light, and tasty kombucha that meets these high standards."
New Leaf Community Markets is a highly lauded chain and was the first B Corp grocer in California.

"Clearly Kombucha's fun, light-hearted spirit aligns with the California spirit and increased distribution in Santa Cruz, a city that epitomizes California's free-spirited vibe, is truly exciting for us as a brand."
Clearly Kombucha's momentum in the Golden State and the United States is notable.
