Safeway introduces three Latin-inspired flavors at Washington locations
SEATTLE, WA (October 31, 2012) — Golazo, Inc., the passion brand for soccer, announced today that Safeway, the region’s largest grocery chain, will introduce three flavors of its popular All Natural Sports Energy drinks at over 100 western Washington stores beginning November 5th. The three flavors, Mango-Limón, Mandarina, and Sugar-Free Mango-Limón, are made with All Natural, non-GMO ingredients and contain half the sugar and calories of the top three leading energy drinks.
“We are thrilled that Safeway is adding Golazo All Natural Sports Energy to their store shelves and giving consumers in Washington another fantastic place to find our phenomenal flavor and industry-leading functionality,” noted Richard Tait, CEO and midfielder at Golazo.
Safeway joins notable retailers like Whole Foods Market, PCC, QFC, Metropolitan Market, Town & Country Markets, and Uwajimaya in offering Golazo products in Seattle, an area renowned for its passion for soccer and local products.Formulated and manufactured in the Northwest, the 12-ounce drinks were designed to provide both energy and hydration by combining electrolytes with 100 mg of natural caffeine—about the same amount as a cup of coffee.
