(CSE:KBEV)(OTC: KBEVF) (the "Company" or "Koios") is pleased to announce it has entered into a distribution agreement with Western Functional Beverages, a leading distributor of healthy, functional drinks targeting the fitness crowd in the State of Wyoming.

"The owners of Western are a lot like us, in that they have a passion for healthy products that create real benefits for their customers," said Chris Miller, chief executive officer of Koios. "As a company, but also as people, they walk the walk when it comes to living and encouraging a healthy lifestyle and achieving a high level of fitness. Their focus is on products that are healthy, usually organic, and that are environmentally sustainable.
"In that way, our beliefs and our philosophies are very similar. We believe they are the ideal team to work with in helping spread our message and our brand throughout the State of Wyoming," he added.
