SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwire – Aug 28, 2012) – Cuba Beverage Company (PINKSHEETS: CUBV), a manufacturer and innovator of all-natural, herbal energy drinks, announced today it has successfully completed its scheduled production run and is in the process of shipping three containers of its energy drink.
The Company contracted with Krier Foods, Inc., a prominent beverage bottler located in Wisconsin, to produce its first production run of 2012. Founded in 1913, Krier has long history of bottling and canning beverage products and has strong relationships with the nation’s best-known beverage producers. Krier’s innovative processes have helped Cuba Beverage keep its packaging costs low as the Company launches production of its three-flavored tier of all-natural herbal energy drinks.
“Cuba Beverage is pleased to have completed its first production run of 2012. Obviously, we are excited to be able to re-launch our three-flavored product line and even more pleased to be working with Krier, a customer service orientated packager of assorted beverages whose commitment to quality production makes them an invaluable service provider for the Company. We are eager to get product to our distributors so that we may begin to recognize sales and reclaim the traction we had previously with respect to demand,” said Alex Procopio, Cuba Beverage CEO.
This production run netted approximately 6,000 cases of its three-flavor product offering; Pomegranate. Wild Berry and Passion Fruit Orange. The Company experienced some shrinkage in its first production run for this year, which is not unusual and will be partially mitigated as more cases are produced with our bottler. Cuba Beverage scheduled a second run for approximately 15,000 cases for mid-October 2012.
