Where Is Your Food Coming From?
by: 1,000 Hills Lifetime Grazed Beef (#N1346)

CLEARWATER, Minn., April 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Is your mind and body the healthiest it could be? What is your immune system like? Where and how often are you buying groceries? Recently we have all been forced to consider these questions more than ever, not only for our own health but for the health of the planet. If you have found yourself questioning topics like this, now is a perfect time to consider upgrading your diet and shopping at your local independent grocers and community food co-ops. They work diligently every day to source the highest integrity, cleanest food available. Grocery shopping at stores such as these is the number one thing you can do to become a more health conscious shopper, while also voting with your dollars and positively affecting the U.S. food system. Unfortunately, we have learned the hard way how risky it is to be dependent on other countries for our essential goods.

When grocery shopping, be on the lookout for protein products that are 100% grass-fed, lifetime grazed, and third party certified by reputable agencies like the American Grassfed Association (AGA). Thousand Hills, certified by the AGA, raises their animals with regenerative agriculture practices utilizing holistic managed grazing techniques that rebuild topsoil, increase biodiversity, maximize photosynthesis/sequester carbon while improving our watershed. The company also adheres to strict standards of NO feedlot confinement, NO antibiotics, NO synthetic hormones, NO grains, and NO GMO plants in their diets— never, ever! Using regenerative agriculture practices, Thousand Hills is currently improving 500,000 acres across the United States. They work with 50 dedicated family farms and 4 regional processing facilities to process close to farmers and consumers, which ultimately cuts down on transportation emissions, provides a nimbler supply chain, while supporting rural economies across the nation. During this challenging time, Thousand Hills is working overtime to refill the supply chain and restock products on the shelves in a timely manner for consumers. They appreciate all the effort of dedicated family farmers thoughtfully raising outstanding cattle, truck drivers, processors, store employees, and all others working behind the scenes to feed the people of the U.S. a high quality, healthful product. As always, and especially now, Thousand Hills feels extremely fortunate to contribute to a thriving ecosystem, regenerative soils, healthy cattle, along with an opportunity to improve the health of people and the planet.

San Francisco Based Artisanal Pork Rind Brand Expands Snack Offerings

Anaheim, CA (March 2020) - San Francisco-based 4505 Meats will be exhibiting at Natural Products Expo West, the largest natural, organic and healthy product trade show. The show marks the debut of 3 new products for 4505 Meats - En Fuego Chicharrones, Sea Salt Chicharrones, and “Cheese-Charrones” Snack Mix.

 En Fuego Chicharrones are a spicy, hot version of the company’s melt in your mouth chicharrones. “[En Fuego]’s got great heat and flavor but at the same time it’s not going to destroy your taste buds,” says CEO / Founder Ryan Farr. He adds, “We have customers who love adding hot sauce to their chicharrones to turn up the heat and hope this satisfies that craving!”

Sea Salt Chicharrones are perfectly salted pork rinds, without any added flavors. “Our intention with the new Sea Salt Chicharrones was to offer an entry point to first-time consumers of pork rinds. It’s perfectly balanced to highlight the quality of our sourcing.”

4505 Meats’ “Cheese-Charrones” Snack Mix features a blend of 4505 Chicharrones, Cracklins, and Whisps-brand Cheddar Cheese Crisps. The mix features bite-sized pieces of Chicharrones and Cracklins along with cheese crisps that gives the mix a fun texture but also ultimate snackability. This combination brings together two of the highest velocity products in the snack aisle.

“We’re really excited about this partnership with Whisps. Their dedication to quality parallels all the things that 4505 stands for. We’ve toyed with the idea of doing a snack mix for some time as I’m a big fan of eating Keto and have had trouble finding variety in my snacks,” comments Farr.

4505 Meats will be exhibiting in booth #N2025 at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 4th - 6th, 2020. 4505 Meats invites show attendees to stop by for a taste of new products and existing SKUs.  The new products will also be on display the What’s New, What’s Hot Product Showcase.

4505 Meats is committed to producing all natural products with balanced flavors. 4505 Meats’ products are both Keto Friendly and Paleo Certified and are the ONLY humanely raised and antibiotic free (ABF) pork rinds on the market. 4505 Meats’ products are available in grocery stores nationwide and on amazon.com.

For more information on the trade show, please visit www.expowest.com. For more information on 4505 Meats, please visit www.4505meats.com or connect with them on Instagram at @4505meats.

The a2 Milk Company Continues To Showcase Impressive Brand Growth in Half Year Earnings

BOULDER, Colo. (February 27, 2020) – The a2 Milk Company, a dairy nutrition company helping people live better lives through the benefits of the A2 protein, has officially released earnings for the half year ending December 31, 2019. The company has made substantial gains in revenue and earnings, with strong performances in key product segments of infant nutrition and liquid milk, across core markets with a total revenue of 806.7 million New Zealand dollars, an increase of 31.6%. EBITDA of the company for the same period was NZ$263.2 million, representing an increase of 20.5% versus the prior comparable period with an EBITDA to sales margin of 32.6%.

U.S. revenue more than doubled compared to the prior corresponding period, up to NZ$28 million and representing a growth of 116%. We continue to gain momentum as we execute on our strategy in the U.S., building towards an initial milestone of US$100 million of annualized sales. Our sales performance was driven by improved in-store productivity, as well as by expanding our distribution footprint. Distribution grew from 13,100 stores to 17,500 stores at the end of June 2019.

“We are pleased that the U.S. sales performance was driven by a combination of strong gains in awareness, distribution, and velocity at store level indicating the strength of the brand proposition for U.S. consumers,” said Blake Waltrip, CEO USA. “Our half year results are very encouraging and further solidify the a2 Milk Company as a pioneer within the American milk market.”

Operational highlights in the half included strong performance in Costco, increasing same store velocities in Walmart, increased penetration within Kroger through achieving national coverage, bringing the brand to shelf in Safeway in the Pacific Northwest, and new distribution points in Target, Giant Eagle, and Fresh Thymes.

Leveraging the consumer and channel insights obtained through a strategic review completed in 2019, the U.S. introduced new packaging and launched a new TV advertising campaign, both of which received positive feedback from the retail trade and are assisting in building brand awareness. The company also improved in-store presence to convert awareness to trial. All of these changes have contributed to increasing consumer takeaway.

In July, the company launched a2 Milk® Coffee Creamers, which have been received positively and are performing to plan. As consumer demand for our products build, and our distribution footprint strengthens, we expect that opportunities to launch additional new products will emerge.

The a2 Milk Company works with local U.S. dairy farmers to identify cows that naturally only produce the A2 protein type and process their milk separately, making it possible for those with sensitivities to enjoy 100% real, cows’ milk. Consumers can now find a2 Milk® at conventional and natural stores nationwide, including select Costco, Walmart, Albertsons/Safeway, Kroger, Publix, Ahold, Sprouts Farmers Market, Whole Foods Market and more.

AlEn USA Mainstreams Nature-Based Household Cleaners;

Natural Products Expo West Booth #H-400

HOUSTON, TX (February 14, 2020) – Art of Green® Multipurpose Cleaners bring two major cleaning product innovations to Natural Products Expo West 2020 – affordability and performance.

“We’re setting the standard for “green for all” in the household cleaning aisle,” said Tanu Grewal, Vice President of Marketing for AlEn USA. “We set out to develop a green, affordable household cleaning line that performs as well as mainstream cleaners, and national retailers and consumers are taking note.”

On February 6, 2020, Art of Green was named the #1 2020 “Product of the Year” winner in the inaugural Green Cleaning category by Product of the Year USA – the national’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation. The Product of the Year award is backed by the votes of more than 40,000 consumers through an online study conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research. According to Kantar, 44% of shoppers are more likely to buy a product that is recommended by a group of consumers.

Affordability and performance are key for widespread natural product adoption.

A recent Mintel consumer study says that cost parity is essential if green brands are to transcend niche status. It also found that consumers, especially among the mainstream, believe most natural products don’t perform well and therefore, are not willing to pay more.

Grewal said the mainstream consumer isn’t willing to spend more for green products. “AlEn’s internal market research found that consumers believe green products are focused on ingredients rather than cleaning power. Consumers, especially the value shopper, want affordability and effectiveness with their green cleaners.”

The green category is growing, with 4.7 million consumers purchasing green products for only one year or less and 56 percent of all U.S. primary household shoppers purchasing natural and organic products in at least one category, according to a recent Kantar Retail study[1].

The Art of Green ® product line offers consumers an affordable and high-performing natural cleaning alternative that is priced for everyday use. The line’s MSRP is below that of other household cleaners in the natural and organic category while competitively priced against mainstream cleaners containing chemicals like bleach. Art of Green is 98-percent naturally derived and available in three product formats: a 22-ounce multipurpose cleaning spray, 35-count multipurpose wipes and 28-ounce concentrated pourable refill.

Key product benefits for Art of Green include:

  • Tough on dirt, grease and grime
  • Non-toxic formula
  • Not tested on animals
  • Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested formula – safe for sensitive skin
  • Safe to use around children and pets
  • Made with natural essential oils that provide a pleasant aroma
  • USDA-certified Bio-based product
  • Spray and Pourable Bottles made with 100% post-consumer recycled materials
  • Available in two scents: Lavender Eucalyptus and Citrus and White Flowers

AlEn USA is also committed to sustainable environmental practices for producing Art of Green® and many of its household cleaning products. With the plantations in South Mexico, AlEn sustainably grows its own high-quality raw materials, without imports or deforestation, by planting millions of pine and palm trees.

AlEn USA Continues To Provide Green Innovations;

Natural Products Expo West Booth #H-400

HOUSTON, TX (DATE)AlEn USA is bringing innovation to the laundry products aisle with a new plant-based fabric softener that is safe for sensitive skin while still providing the long-lasting fragrance and freshness consumers crave. Ensueño Naturals® is one of AlEn USA’s featured products at the Natural Products Expo West show Booth #H400.

“People use fabric softeners for two reasons: for long-lasting scent and softer laundry,” said Tanu Grewal, Vice President of Marketing for AlEn USA. “However, consumers with sensitive skin issues have had to give that up when they use the current “green” fabric softeners on the market because they lack a pleasant aroma. Ensueño Naturals® is a new alternative for people who want a fabric softener with an extraordinary fragrance because it combines plant-based ingredients and natural extracts for fresher and softer laundry.”

Mintel research[i] found that around that 22 percent of households with children are concerned about the safety of scents, and 18 percent worry they will have an allergic reaction to certain fragrances. AlEn’s internal market research also found that 76 percent of consumers prefer products that are safe for their skin. “Our value proposition of dermatologically-tested, safe for sensitive skin, and pleasant aroma in every wash is relevant for consumers today,” said Grewal.

Consumers are becoming more conscious about the products they buy and use and how they impact the environment according to Mintel research[ii]. Ensueño Naturals® offers an affordable and high-performing natural laundry alternative that is priced for everyday use.

A further benefit, the product’s MSRP is below that of fabric softeners in the natural and organic category, while competitively priced against mainstream softeners containing chemicals and dyes. Ensueño Naturals® is available in 45-ounce pourable bottles and currently in select stores in California with an eye towards national distribution during 2020.

Key product benefits of Ensueño Naturals® include:

  • Plant-based formula that is non-toxic
  • Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested formula – safe for sensitive skin
  • Made with natural essential oils that provide a pleasant and long-lasting aroma
  • USDA Bio-based Certification
  • Not tested on animals

  • 1995 – Artemis imports European Aronia melanocarpa (then known as chokeberry) and places at Oregon State University to study varities and cultivation in the US
  • working with both domestic and European aronia growers to raise awareness with its aroniahealth.org website and recognition of aronia heart health benefits
  • leader in educating about the science of dark berries
  • leading and trusted provider of Elderberry extracts to the marketplace
  • ongoing participation in traceability, identity, and Botanical Adulterants Prevention Program
  • a proud sponsor of The Berry Symposium and other botanical educational opportunities; leading in initiating dark berry related research
  • committed to sustainable practices including renewable energy extraction facility; solar data/web-hosting, paperless office with a minimal waste policy working toward Zero Landfill Impact
  • committed to local causes; starteda school adoption program supporting  technology initiatives, the development of a school-based greenhouse program and  Random Act of Kindness program to make a difference in the lives of those in need

“Twenty-five years of success is indeed a milestone, and great timing to embark on this exciting new product line launch,” says Leslie Gallo, president of Artemis International. “Our new line of Craft branded berry extracts features a proprietary solvent-free processing technology that will deliver a distinctive and “crafted” premium level of product quality, performance, and trust. We say it’s “The art of extraction. Perfected.” It is also a perfect start to our next 25 years.”  

Artemis International will celebrate its 25thanniversary at the upcoming Expo West 2020 and invite show attendees to its Booth #3482 on Friday, March 6 at 4 p.m  to meet its master Austrian Elderberry grower and head of its Elderberry Co-Op.

BabyVites, Plant-Based Omega-3 Multivitamin for Infants, Toddlers and Children, To Exhibit in Hot New Products Section of Natural Products Expo West 2020

Liquid Multivitamin Created by Nationally Recognized Pediatrician, Dr. Dafna Ahdoot, Exhibiting for the First Time at Leading Industry Trade Show

_________________________________________________________________________

LOS ANGELES – (February 27, 2020) -  BabyVites, a plant-based multivitamin for infants, toddlers and children, is exhibiting for the first time at Natural Products Expo West, March 4-6, 2020 in Anaheim, CA.

The company will be exhibiting in the Pacific Ballroom on the second floor of the Hilton Anaheim Hotel, Booth #H229 as part of the Hot Products section.

Created by nationally recognized pediatrician, Dr. Dafna Ahdoot, BabyVites is sourced from algae oil, which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins necessary for the development of infants, toddlers and children. As Omega-3 fatty acids are nutrients that are not produced by human bodies but is commonly found in fish oil and algae, BabyVites uses algae oil to create an alternative Omega-3 and multivitamin supplement without a fishy taste and smell. Made without harvesting and extracting fish oil, large quantities of BabyVites can easily be produced.

“BabyVites is the plant-based alternative for those who don’t want to the fish oil route,” said Dr. Ahdoot. “As DHA and other vital Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to growing a newborn’s body, pediatricians typically recommended to provide them with supplementation through vitamins or fish oil. However, not all children can consume fish-based ingredients.”

BabyVites is the plant-based alternative that is safe for infants, toddlers and children with fish and shellfish allergies and for picky eaters with sensitive smells and palates.

With a higher concentration of DHA than competitors, BabyVites is a new liquid multivitamin supplement that delivers essential nutrients with no use of fish products.

Made with plant-based ingredients to support production in large quantities, BabyVites is the Omega-3 multivitamin supplement that children enjoy with no fishy taste or smell.

According to the American Psychological Association, "chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death." Stress has been implicated in heart issues, inflammation, obesity, mental illness and more.

Most people think of stress as caused by things like work, traffic, tense relationships… And they focus on "solutions" like meditation, going to the spa, and so on. But what if the root of so much stress we experience... comes down to deficiency of this ONE OVERLOOKED NUTRIENT? Even if you eat or take this nutrient - you're almost certainly still deficient.

This nutrient is responsible for 300-600 different biochemical reactions in the body (including metabolism). When your levels are low, you struggle with sleep, energy, metabolism, pain and more. Worst of all, this deficiency has a very "toxic relationship" with stress.

According to Dr. Leopald Galland, M.D. — "stress increases the amount of this nutrient we lose from our body (in urine), leading to a dangerous deficiency."

In turn, that deficiency worsens our response to stress. So we get stuck in a cycle of feeling stressed, losing more of this nutrient, reacting even more to stress, losing more again, and so on. And stress ruins nearly every aspect of your health, in part, because stress increases stress hormones like cortisol.

The superhero mineral and the answer to this is MAGNESIUM. 

https://www.magnesiumbreakthrough.com/

 

One of the reasons why magnesium might help reduce anxiety is that it may improve brain function. 

Now, you might be thinking... "there are gazillion magnesium products out there, if magnesium were the solution to stress — more people would be stress-free."

The problem is two-fold.

First, almost everyone is severely deficient in magnesium — even those who get the "recommended daily dose". Because higher stress levels (common for ambitious folks like us) require much higher than RDA doses. 

And second - if you're taking only one form of magnesium — YOU ARE STILL DEFICIENT!

 

One of the biggest misconceptions about magnesium is that you just “need more” of the mineral and you’ll be healthy and optimized. But the truth is, there are many different types of magnesium - and each plays a critical role in various functions in your body. 

 

Most “healthy” people only get 1-2 forms at best - but when you get all 7 forms of magnesium, that’s when the magic happens. 

If you want to beat stress, get fit, sleep better and recover faster... You need full-spectrum magnesium. In fact, the 7 different forms of magnesium connect to a variety of biological systems - when you get them in the right dose, everything works better.  The solution is Magnesium Breakthrough:

https://bioptimizers.com/product/magnesium-breakthrough/

 

It contains every key form of magnesium, in exactly the right ration. Magnesium Breakthrough is simply the most complete, most patent, most performance-enhancing magnesium formula ever created.  

 

Try yourself! And if after opening your first bottle you're not completely satisfied, just send back the remaining unopened bottles and you'll get 100% of your money back. Absolutely no questions asked, no loopholes, and no hassles.

A new randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study has been published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, confirming the efficacy of 450mg of BiovaBIO for oral use in beauty supplements.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey by leading sustainable seafood brand Blue Circle Foods revealed that although shoppers are concerned about where their fish comes from and what is in it, price still influences purchasing decisions. Data from the survey, conducted in the U.S. in Sept. 2019 by Blue Circle Foods, shows overwhelming concern about contaminants, ocean pollution and overfishing. Shoppers indicated a strong preference for fish and seafood that is certified sustainable; however, cost still topped consumers' priorities. Blue Circle, which is committed to producing sustainable seafood with total transparency and traceability, initiated the survey to examine shoppers' beliefs about seafood, and how this impacts their purchasing decisions.

To mark the start of National Seafood Month, Blue Circle Foods sought the opinions of over 300 consumers. 78 percent of the respondents had purchased fish or seafood at least once in the previous month, with most believing that fish and other seafood are more sustainable than land-based meats such as poultry, beef and pork. The survey showed that most shoppers think fish and seafood are healthier than pork, beef and grains, and just as healthy as vegetables, with 84 percent believing fish and other seafood to be an important part of a balanced diet.

What concerns shoppers most?  

  • 90 percent of shoppers are concerned about contaminants like mercury in fish and seafood
  • 88 percent are concerned about ocean pollution
  • 86 percent are worried about the extinction of wild fish species
  • 83 percent are concerned about seafood mislabeling

Price dominated the list of ranked attributes that affect purchasing decisions, but shoppers clearly indicated that where seafood is sourced from, and whether it contains contaminants such as mercury and PCBs, are critical concerns. Interestingly, while they mirror concerns identified by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) which suggest that fears over methylmercury pollution have led to a decline in U.S. families feeding fish to children, the survey revealed positive attitudes towards seafood:

  • 47 percent of shoppers had offered their children seafood by age five
  • 82 percent of children had eaten fish or seafood by age ten or earlier
  • 83 percent of shoppers agreed that their children enjoyed eating fish and other seafood.
  • 72 percent of shoppers believe that their children are eating enough fish and seafood.

The AAP recommends that children, pregnant and breastfeeding women eat 1-2 servings of fish per week, with sustainably caught or raised fish and shellfish offering the best choices.

"This survey confirms consumers' chief concerns and provides us with a great opportunity, particularly during National Seafood Month, to help them make choices they can feel good about when buying fish," says Nina Damato, supply chain manager at Blue Circle Foods. "Our 'Feel Good Fish' motto is to make sustainable seafood more accessible to all by ensuring 100 percent traceability, third party certification and peace of mind. We raise salmon using innovative practices that eschew antibiotics, growth hormones, GMOs and synthetic pigments while protecting wild fish stocks. The end result is certified sustainable salmon that is exceptionally high in omega-3s and free from contaminants," she notes.

Aquaculture accounts for more than fifty percent of global seafood consumption, highlighting the need to produce fish more responsibly and efficiently, while preserving oceans and wild fish populations. Blue Circle Foods and its partner Kvarøy hope to inspire other producers to use responsible practices, which will in turn help to reduce the number of wild fish being caught for aquaculture feed.  

Blue Circle Foods' farmed Atlantic salmon is raised in pristine Arctic waters off the coast of central Norway and is sold fresh and frozen in the seafood counter at Whole Foods Market stores nationwide. The company's smoked salmon is also sold at Whole Foods Market under the Changing Seas brand, and is available at www.bluecirclefoods.com/shop, on Amazon, and at select retailers under the Blue Circle Foods brand.

Founded in 2005, Blue Circle Foods is at the forefront of a revolution in production, practice and taste in seafood. With deep roots in the organic industry, Blue Circle Foods brings its groundbreaking spirit to the oceans with a bold mission to change the way the world consumes seafood.

Los Angeles-Based Artist TYP to Transform Show Booth Wall from Blank Canvas to Mixed-Media Art, Representing Company Vision: Plants Powering People™

Bakersfield, Calif., February 26, 2020 –  Bringing to life its vision of Plants Powering People™, Bolthouse Farms will reveal an ambitious lineup of healthier and more functional products at Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products trade show, March 5-7, 2020, in Anaheim, Calif. These new product innovations will be on display against a dynamic backdrop of an interactive live painting experience by Los Angeles-based mixed-media artist TYP. The art piece, which will represent the Company’s ongoing transformation, breakthrough innovations and its vision, will come to life over two days at the Bolthouse Farms booth, Hall A #557.

“Under new ownership and leadership, product innovation is fueling our growth once again in the form of new categories, line extensions and flavors,” said Bill Levisay, President, Bolthouse Farms Brands. “The products we’re launching, ranging from Protein Keto beverages to functional shots to CBD products, are reflective of our vision and passion for guiding a new way for people to eat and live healthier lifestyles without compromising flavor.”

The portfolio of new Bolthouse Farms products includes three new beverage lines, as well as new flavors and line extensions for protein shakes, juices and dressings.

New Beverage Lines

  • Bolthouse Farms Protein Keto™: Keto is a lifestyle that follows a strict set of guidelines which may be complicated for some consumers. To help, the company is launching four ready-to-drink Protein Keto beverages. The lineup of beverages, available now in Dark Chocolate, Coconut, Coffee and Matcha flavors, provides convenience, great flavor and simplification to the Keto lifestyle.
  • Bolthouse Farms BOLTS™: Functional shots are seeing tremendous growth and acceptance by consumers but can be pricey. BOLTS are quick jolts of juice and functional ingredients available at an accessible price point. Grounded in the inherent nutrition of carrots, BOLTS all start with a base of carrot juice and are fueled by super foods with specific functional benefits – Immunity, Digestion, Energy, Wellness and Metabolism.
  • With the CBD food and beverage segment rapidly emerging, and functional beverages seeing notable growth, Bolthouse Farms has put its plant-powered expertise into the category with CBD Functional Infusions and CBD Coffee Beverages. Both lines provide refreshing, easily drinkable and functional beverages with the added benefits of CBD. These CBD lines will be available in mid-2020.

New Flavors and Line Extensions

  • As consumers continue to seek out protein beverages, Bolthouse Farms has added the new Protein Plus® Dutch Chocolate Banana flavor to its popular Protein Plus lineup. The new flavor leverages the popular and delicious combination of both banana and chocolate flavors, while providing 30 grams of protein, 21 vitamins & minerals and no artificial flavors or colors.
  • As the leader in the carrot juice market, consumers value and trust Bolthouse Farms’ unrivaled expertise in the category. The introduction of Carrot Ginger Turmeric juice adds antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to the premium juice line in direct response to consumer demand for higher functional beverages.
  • Made with yogurt and no artificial preservatives or flavors, Bolthouse Farms® Refrigerated Dressings deliver extraordinary taste with less fat and fewer calories than other leading brands. Three new flavors – Honey BBQ Ranch, Pomegranate Poppy Seed, and Lemon Basil – will appeal to a broad range of consumers with flavors they are asking for.

A flurry of activity awaits attendees of the Natural Products Expo West at the Bolthouse Farms booth. All new products will be available for taste testing and artist TYP will be available for Instagram-ready photos (don’t forget to tag #bolthousefarms) as he brings his artwork to life Thursday and Friday of the show. Visit the Bolthouse Farms booth in Hall A #557.

Last fall, an invigorating introduction from Brew Dr. Kombucha hit shelves: Uplift, the first ever high-caffeine kombucha on the market. Now, it’s getting a tropical counterpart. Each 14 oz. bottle boasts the same 130 mg of natural caffeine as the original caffeinated Uplift, but the new flavor brings a mouth-watering combination of mango and passionfruit to the party.

Brew Dr. has appropriately dubbed the latest addition Tropical Uplift.

Brew Dr. Founder and CEO Matt Thomas commented, “I think this is just the beginning of the caffeinated kombucha category. We’ve been so pleased at the positive response Uplift has received, and we’re excited to continue to innovate and get creative with how we bring consumers delicious functional beverages from clean ingredients.”

The natural caffeine in Tropical Uplift comes from the dynamic ingredient trio of yerba mate, guayusa and green tea. This new flavor is already on shelves at all 300+ Sprouts Markets and will roll out to additional locations nationwide in April, 2020.

While Brew Dr. is seeking to give kombucha consumers an added benefit, the company also sees Uplift as an option for energy drink consumers. “Energy drinks have come a long way, but for the most part have abandoned any form of a craft, real-ingredients approach. Uplift gives the person who prefers to get their caffeine from energy drinks the option of doing so with all the benefits of raw kombucha made from organic teas, botanicals and juices,” says Thomas. To compete in that space, Brew Dr. is also introducing both flavors of Uplift in 16 oz. cans, the standard format for the majority of energy drinks on the market. Find all Uplift flavors at brewdrkombucha.com/buy-kombucha.

Brew Dr. Kombucha stands apart as a kombucha company steeped in tea heritage. In 2006, Matt Thomas started Brew Dr. Tea Company (formerly named Townshend’s Tea) which offers organic loose-leaf tea of the highest quality in a casual teahouse setting. In 2008, he began brewing organic kombucha in the teahouse kitchens, giving it the name Brew Dr. Kombucha. From leaf to bottle, the company creates each flavor from their custom tea blends, making deliciously refreshing authentic kombucha with a difference you can taste.

Brew Dr.'s mission is to help people discover how good tea and kombucha can be, referring not only to its quality approach, but to the company's commitment to its communities, its people, and the planet. Brew Dr. Kombucha is proud to be the first national kombucha company to become both carbon neutral and a Certified B Corporation.

Brew Dr. Kombucha is offering consumers a sip of sunshine with their newest limited-release flavor: Watermelon. The subtle sweetness of watermelon combines with delicate sencha green tea to create an approachable fruity flavor that’s deliciously refreshing.  

 

“Call us crazy, but we’re not ones to shy away from trying something new, different, or potentially weird. This year we decided to create a flavor that could remind us of warm summer days during the cold of winter,” says Matt Thomas, Founder and CEO of Brew Dr. Kombucha. “The result is super tasty, and I expect Watermelon to be a favorite for both first-time kombucha drinkers as well as longtime fans.”

 

Watermelon kombucha is available in 14 oz. bottles nationwide. Find it at a location near you by searching brewdrkombucha.com/buy-kombucha.

Expanding on their current ginger offerings, Brew Dr. Kombucha has rounded out a trio of ginger-centric flavors with varying levels of spice to offer something for everyone. Each flavor pairs ginger with different complementary ingredients. 

Ginger Turmeric is the spiciest with a heavy hit of ginger juice combined with turmeric and Indian long pepper. Next comes Ginger Lemon, which combines the zing of ginger with citrusy lemon for a fresh ginger-centric flavor with a medium kick. Last but not least, Wildberry Ginger employs a more modest ginger level paired with a burst of berries for those who prefer things on the juicier side. 

“Ginger is a longtime favorite ingredient among health-conscious individuals. We’ve loved working with ginger in our teahouses for the past 15 years, and know some folks love a spicy ginger heat, while others want to walk on the mild side. Our recent ginger-focused creations provide something that will appeal to every palate,” comments Matt Thomas, Founder and CEO of Brew Dr. Kombucha. 

Look for all three flavors in 14 oz. bottles nationwide

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 26, 2020

Maine Brands Join Forces to Celebrate 200 Years of Innovation at Expo West

This March, just days before the official 200th anniversary of Maine’s statehood, Maine brands will descend on Anaheim, California to show off one of the state’s greatest strengths: innovation in natural products and the food industry. The brands, which represent everything from Maine’s most traditional fished and farmed products to cutting edge food testing technology, will present a unified front as they dot the floor of Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural products trade show, which takes place March 4-7, 2020 and draws an international crowd of over 90,000 industry attendees.

While Maine brands have attended the show for decades, this year’s contingent is taking a new approach: over the months preceding their trip west, representatives from 11 Maine companies have been collaborating on a joint branding campaign to represent the state.

The Maine cohort includes Bristol Seafood, EnviroLogix, Gelato Fiasco, GrandyOats, Luke’s Lobster, Nibmor, Ocean’s Balance, Simply Served, Scott and Jon’s, Stonewall Kitchen and Wyman’s.

“200 is a pretty monumental birthday for our state,” says Ben Conniff of Luke’s Lobster. “We got to thinking about some of the things that make our state truly stand out, and immediately our minds went to amazing natural resources and the innovative things Mainers do with them.”

The campaign aims to tie together Maine’s past and future, under the banner of the original Maine state flag and the tagline “200 Years of Innovation.” The brands represent that spectrum well: the oldest, Wyman’s, was founded by Jasper Wyman in 1874 and today is one of the largest suppliers of wild blueberries, a heritage product enjoyed since long before statehood. The youngest, Ocean’s Balance, was founded in 2016 farming kelp, a relatively new flavor for the Maine palate but a booming opportunity for Maine’s coastline.

Innovative food collabs are second nature to Maine brands—look at GrandyOats’s collaboration beer with Allagash, which will be featured at a happy hour during the Expo, or the Wild Blue Salad topped with lobster and Wyman’s blueberries, both exported from Maine and served at Luke’s Lobster locations around the country. But 11 diverse companies banding together to cut through the noise of an often-chaotic trade show has never been done before.

The companies are grateful to receive funding and guidance from Maine’s Department of Economic and Community Development and the Maine Center for Entrepreneurs to enhance the impact of these efforts. “The Maine Department of Economic & Community Development is committed to helping Maine companies identify domestic markets and position for domestic trade success,” says Charlotte Mace, the Director of Business Development for DECD. “We are so pleased by the leadership shown by these companies attending Expo West in a collaborative way to jointly leverage and amplify the unique and valuable Maine brand.”

The campaign itself will play out through a targeted digital campaign directing influential buyers to visit Maine booths, a shared Instagram account under @mainefoodcollab to provide a single source to learn about businesses from Maine, original Maine flag tote bags sporting company logos, shared assets from the show and a collaborative media outreach.

While Maine only turns 200 once, all parties involved see this as just the beginning of an effort that will build over the years and have a knock-on effect not just for exhibitors, but for countless other brands already flourishing in the state and the many more expected to launch in the future.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2018 – Chelsey Wang Beauty & Baby has announced that its Soothing Aloe Serum has been included in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine’s Fall 2018/Winter 2019 Winter Buyer’s Guide. The digital version of the guide can be accessed here. The Soothing Aloe Serum has been recognized for its ‘Fountain of Youth’ qualities.

“To have our Soothing Aloe Serum be honored by such a well-respected publication within the parenting community is both humbling and inspiring. Our goal is to continue to educate and empower mothers from all walks of life while equipping them with the safest products available for their little ones as well as themselves,” said CW Founder, Chelsey Wang. CW Soothing Aloe Serum is multi-functional and works gently and effectively. 

CW Baby features a four-line collection including CW Healing Diaper Crème, CW Calming Massage Oil and CW Organic Hair + Body Wash. Each hand-crafted product has been designed to be ultra-absorbent, nutrient-dense and offers the perfect hydration for baby’s sensitive skin. “It was very important to me to create products that serve more than one purpose, saving time and affordability were also key factors,” said Wang. 

Created in 2014, husband and wife team Rob and Chelsey Wang started CW Skincare with No Secrets out of a desire to grow public awareness of nasty chemical and synthetic ingredients that have found their way into a majority of mainstream products today while offering high quality, safe and effective alternatives.
