New Distribution Agreements Make KonaRed Available Throughout Pacific Northwest

Kona, HI (May 23, 2011) – KonaRed™, a 100 percent natural antioxidant beverage powered by Hawaii’s own superfruit, the coffee plant, is thrilled to announce distribution agreements with Fun Beverage, Gusto Beverage, Thompson Distributing and Cardinal Distributing, premier distributors in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Complete with nature’s most powerful antioxidants, KonaRed™ continues to rapidly carve out an impressive following in the beverage industry with this recent announcement.

Through the new distribution agreement, 16 oz. bottles and 3 oz. wellness shots of KonaRed™ are now available in Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho.  The beverage is available at grocery, convenience and health food stores including Town Pump, Montana’s largest convenience store chain, select Walgreens, Alberstons, as well as many quality independent stores throughout the region.

“The expansion of KonaRed™ in the Pacific Northwest region marks another key landmark for the company,” says Shaun Roberts, CEO and Co-Founder of KonaRed™. “We are proud to say that we are now available in eight out of the 50 states, bringing us closer to our goal of providing this refreshing wellness beverage to all consumers across the country.”

KonaRed™ launched earlier this year in Hawaii through Paradise Beverage distributors, which made KonaRed™ available in Whole Foods, GNC, Foodland, Times Supermarkets, KTA and many other stores throughout the state.  KonaRed™ is currently available in the following states: Hawaii, California, Texas, Colorado, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

The crisp, berry-flavored taste of KonaRed™ comes from the red, ripe fruit of the coffee plant that surrounds the coffee bean (the seed of the fruit).  100 percent natural juice, KonaRed Coffee Fruit extract is blended with other body loving fruits, including pineapple and apple.  It contains no coffee beans, no preservatives and no added sugar or caffeine. Boasting on ORAC Score of 7909 per serving, KonaRed™ also includes unprecedented levels of powerful antioxidants – Quinic Acid, Chlorogenic Acid and Ferulic Acid – each with protective benefits that are scientifically proven to help fight disease, suppress appetite, and inhibit inflammation. Better still, it is highly bio-available, meaning the beverage’s antioxidant properties are absorbed at the cellular level, giving the body what it needs when it needs it, naturally.

Suggested retail price is $4.99 for the 16-oz bottle and $2.99 for the 3 oz. wellness shots. Additionally, consumers can purchase the product by contacting KonaRed™ at 808.212.1553, or by visiting www.konared.com.

About KonaRed™

In 2008, KonaRed™’s executive team, led by CEO and Co-Founder Shaun Roberts, began to study the benefits of the coffee fruit in conjunction with Kona’s major coffee producers, which led to perfecting extraction methods and months of testing in leading U.S. laboratories to identify antioxidants and their benefits.  Clinically tested and proven from this process, KonaRed™ was created.
