No financial terms of the deal were revealed.

More than 30% of Ocean Spray Cranberry juice consumers prefer to mix the juice with sparkling water, creating a home-made carbonated version of the drink.

Formed more than 80 years ago, Ocean Spray is a cooperative of 700 cranberry and grapefruit growers in six U.S. states, Chile and Canada. Last year it generated sales of $2.2 billion.

Last year, SodaStream partnered with Kraft Foods (NASDAQ:KFT) to add Kool-Aid flavors to its soda-syrup portfolio.

Shares of SodaStream rose almost 2% in Wednesday morning trading.
