(OTC Pink:VATE), a holding company focused on the commercial development of hemp and CBD-based products including hemp coffee, tea, CBD salve, CBD Lotions and CBD Tinctures that target the health and wellness markets, is pleased to announce the acquisition of L&P Cold Brew, LLC from Blessed Bean Coffee, a Florida Limited Liability Company. The acquisition allows Elev8 Brands to enter the ready to go market, which according to Food Business News, the global sales of ready to go coffee and tea market in 2015 was $71.4 billion.

Elev8 Brands acquired the newly formed L&P Cold Brew to launch its new cold brew product line and to make it a more versatile company adding additional revenue through vertical markets.

"We have had tremendous success with our Blessed Bean Coffee company and have been eager to expand our business into the cold brew sector”, stated Robie Leavitt, Managing Member of Blessed Bean Coffee, "Working with the Elev8 team has given us the ability to open up a new division of our already profitable business to provide cold brew to our existing customers as well as the ability to create new customers from this high demand market of ready to go coffee drinks.”

According to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. the global ready to drink tea and coffee market size is expected to reach 116.13 billion USD by 2024. US Sales alone in 2017 were over $38.1 million which is up over 460% from 2015.

Ryan Medico, CEO of Elev8 Brands, Inc. stated, "As we see the market for ready to go coffee and tea drastically increasing, we must jump on the opportunity to develop our own cold brew coffee. Of course, our coffee will differentiate itself amongst the others as Elev8 will infuse organic hemp protein."

Elev8 Brands is also pleased to announce that within thirty days its audit should be complete per Ben Borgers of BF Borgers CPA PC. Elev8 Brands has submitted its second round of information and will soon be completing its application process to up-list to the OTCQB.
