VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV, Q:BVNNF, FSE:7BC) (“BevCanna” or the “Company”), an innovative health and wellness beverages and products company, today announced that it has been named one of the 101 Top Food and Beverage Startups and Companies in Canada by Best Startup Canada, a media company that focuses on the latest innovations, breakthroughs and greatest companies across Canada.

BevCanna was also included within the list of the Top 101 Cannabis Startups and Companies in Canada, a list of innovators and growth companies within the Canadian cannabis industry.

“It’s both an honour and a reflection of the BevCanna team’s expertise and dedication, to be included within the sphere of other premier Canadian food and beverage companies, including Ritual, Goodfood, Flow Water, Chef’s Plate and David’s Tea,” noted Marcello Leone, CEO of BevCanna. “This recognition of our leadership position within both the food and beverage and the cannabis products categories validates our strategy of developing innovative, highly-customized beverage products that appeal to a range of target markets, including value, craft and premium positioning, for both our in-house brands and our white-label clients.”
