GPOX CEO Brett H. Pojunis commented, regarding the agreement, “GPOX is honored to have been granted the exclusive opportunity to create, market and distribute the Yuengling’s Ice Cream brand of flavored CBD and Cannabinoid products. Since 1920, Yuengling’s Ice Cream has proudly produced super premium ice cream products with a focus on the highest quality ingredients. Similar to our existing offerings in the nutraceutical, hemp derived CBD and cannabinoids spaces, GPOX’s DISTRO+ division represents only the highest quality brands that use best in class ingredients. We look forward to curating these exciting new product segments with such a storied legacy brand.”
“We see the Yuengling’s Ice Cream flavor profiles as a complementary pairing to GPOX’s CBD and Cannabinoid products and in evaluating the best partner to create the newly branded products, GPOX most closely shared Yuengling’s unwavering commitment and ability to the use of the highest quality ingredients in these products and we look forward to assisting GPOX in the marketing and distribution process though our online channels and retail partners throughout the Midwest and Southeast,” stated Jason Daggett of YIC – Online and Retail Distributors, LLC, the company that facilitated bringing the two parties together.
Joseph Jaconi, President of DISTRO+ (GPOX’s distribution division and GPO for specialty retailers) noted “the creation of a Yuengling’s Ice Cream flavored CBD and Cannabinoid suite of products is another exciting, high quality branding opportunity for DISTRO+ to enhance our B2B business by selling to wholesalers and retailers nationwide. Our geographic reach is outstanding and the opportunity to introduce consumers to Yuengling’s Ice Cream flavored CBD and Cannabinoid products through our network is a great fit.”
Rob Bohorad, Yuengling’s current President and CEO, stated “We are very excited about pairing Yuengling’s Ice Cream’s flavor profiles with GPOX’s CBD and Cannabinoid products”. “As Rob and I work behind the scenes on the relaunch of our ice cream products, I loved the idea of working the GPOX and YIC – Online and Retail Distributors on the introduction of CBD and other hemp derived cannabinoid products. We feel it is a very creative way to distinguish and differentiate GPOX’s wonderful selection of products” added Chuck Green, Yuengling’s incoming President and CEO.

About Yuengling’s Ice Cream
Developed by American businessman Frank D. Yuengling, as a dairy business to help support the Yuengling family brewery during the 1920s Prohibition period, Yuengling’s Ice Cream has a strong tradition of making exceptional gourmet ice cream products in central Pennsylvania. Yuengling’s Ice Cream is a super-premium ice cream, which means it has a butterfat content of 14% or greater. In addition to having high butterfat, Yuengling’s also has low overrun (or a lower amount of air). This makes the ice cream less whipped and much more dense. Yuengling’s also is constantly working to keep its product as “clean” as possible, by using as few ingredients as necessary, and those that are used are of an extremely high quality. David Yuengling and Rob Bohorad revived the brand in 2014 and an American classic was re-born. In 2018, positioned for the brand’s next stage of development, Yuengling’s Ice Cream forged a partnership with YIC – Online + Retail Distributors, to distribute the iconic ice cream brand online. The Yuengling’s Ice Cream Corporation, as it has been since 1935, is a separately owned and run company from D. G. Yuengling and Sons, Inc Brewery. Visit YuenglingsIceCream.com for more information.
