ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/22/15 -- Fresh Promise Foods, Inc. (OTC PINK: FPFI), a Georgia-based natural and organic health and wellness company, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Harvest Soul, Inc., maker of organic chewable juices, is expanding their distribution footprint to include the West Coast and Pacific Northwest.
After successfully launching Harvest Soul Chewable Juices throughout the South Region with Whole Foods Markets, the company felt a West Coast expansion was a logical decision. The brand also debuted at the Natural Products Expo West show in March 2015, where it was one of a few dozen brands to be nominated for a NEXTY Award, chosen for being an innovator in the natural and organic space.
Kevin P. Quirk, Fresh Promise Foods CEO and Harvest Soul President said, "It became very clear to us after Expo West that we needed to be on the West Coast. We received such a positive reception and interest from retailers, distributors and customers alike that we felt expanding west was a smart decision. Also, it's important to note that the market for organic high pressure processed (HPP) juices is larger and faster growing in the West Coast area when compared with the South."
Quirk went on to further comment, "Toward that end, we are pleased and excited to be partnering with Optimum Sales, a top-tier sales through distribution organization of all-natural and organic products. They have the expertise in the natural and organic space and really 'get' our brand and how Harvest Soul Chewable Juice is changing the juice landscape."
Kevin Crozer, President of Optimum Sales commented, "When we met the Harvest Soul team at Expo West and tasted their new Chewable Juices, we were blown away! Not only by their unique concept, but the fact that they have managed to address the single major issue in the juicing world, lack of fiber and proteins due to the pressing process in pressed juices, and they managed to do it with great tasting flavors that are both USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. I immediately brought my sales team and some key customers to their booth to try their product. It was then that we knew we needed to represent Harvest Soul in the Western US. The possibilities are unlimited here with a brand like theirs."
Harvest Soul will begin shipping to lead retailers in July with full scale launch in August.
Harvest Soul Organic Chewable Juices are currently available at Whole Foods Markets in two great tasting flavors, Green Fusion and Tropical Fusion. Harvest Soul Organic Chewable Juices are superfood blends of fruits and vegetables, mixed in with perfectly sized bits of seeds, nuts and berries. They are packed with fiber and protein, are never made from concentrates, and have no added flavors or sugar. The juices are also available online at www.harvestsoul.com.
