Golazo and Whole Foods Market Team up to Fuel Futbol in Southern California

Golazo All Natural Sports Energy Drinks Are Now Available at America’s Healthiest Grocery Store

SEATTLE, WA–(Marketwire – Sep 11, 2012) – Golazo, Inc., the passion brand for soccer, arrived today in Southern California, launching its acclaimed All Natural Sports Energy beverage lineup at select Whole Foods Market locations throughout Southern California. Available in four phenomenal flavors, and made with nearly 50 percent less sugar and half the calories of the top three leading energy drinks, Golazo All Natural Sports Energy drinks are a game-changer. The company’s expansion into California comes on the heels of its success in the Pacific Northwest, where soccer players and fans have embraced the All Natural alternative, making it a favorite among Whole Foods Market’s shoppers in the area.

Golazo, which means “super goal” in Spanish, is the universal celebration cry of the soccer masses. The company’s All Natural Sports Energy beverages are available in four Latin-inspired flavors — Mango-Limón (mango lime, pronounced Man-go Lee-Mone) Sugar-Free Mango-Limón, Mandarina (mandarin, pronounced Man-Da-Reena), and Jamaica (Hibiscus punch, pronounced Ha-My-Ca).

“At Golazo, we are passionate about offering healthier choices without sacrificing flavor and functionality. With over 40 percent of today’s youth consuming energy drinks, we are delighted to partner with Whole Foods Market to provide a great-tasting, all natural alternative while encouraging an active lifestyle,” said Golazo co-founder Richard Tait.

The 12 oz. drinks are made with 100% All-Natural, non-GMO (genetically-engineered) ingredients, electrolytes for hydration, and a blend of natural caffeine and simple carbohydrates for healthy energy that lasts.

“We’re very excited to introduce our products at Whole Foods Markets in southern California, a geography renowned for celebrating Latin-American culture, a hotbed for soccer, and one of the nation’s leading all-natural marketplaces,” continued Tait. “Those three factors make it a ‘hat trick’ for our company and a tremendous opportunity. At Golazo, it’s not about a monster, it’s not about a bull; it’s about a ball and healthier choices.”
