SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Mar. 27, 2007) – Zola Açaí, the world’s first Açaí Power Juice and the best selling single Açaí drink in the natural foods channel according to the SPINS market research firm, has been Certified Organic by QAI as of December 2006. All three Zola flavors – Açaí Original, Açaí + Pineapple, and Açaí + Blueberry – now carry the USDA Organic seal.
“Zola has always used 100% organic Açaí and being officially certified as organic reaffirms our commitment to sustainable harvesting and to the preservation of the Amazon rainforest. It also lets our customers know that all three of our flavors are from 100% unfiltered, organic Açaí,” said Chris Cuvelier, Zola Açaí’s founder and president. “In addition, organic beverages experienced a 97 percent sales increase over the last five years, and sales are estimated to reach over $2 billion by 2011. Given this tremendous category growth, we see our own organic certification as a very positive development for Zola.”
Zola Açaí is made from 100% unfiltered pulp of organic, antioxidant-rich Açaí berries and infused with energy-sustaining Guaraná powder, giving consumers health and power in Amazon-sized quantities. Zola is available in three flavors: Açaí + Pineapple, Açaí + Blueberry, and the newly renamed Açaí Original. They are available in 11-ounce singles, and in 12-pack cases for bulk purchases, both of which ship in newly updated packaging.
About Zola Açaí
Zola Açaí combines a proprietary processing technology with an authentic Brazilian recipe to produce an organic, all-natural, shelf-stable product that tastes great. Our key ingredient is the organic Açaí berry, which has more antioxidants than any other edible fruit on the planet, including 60 percent more than pomegranates and 500 percent more than blueberries. As the world’s first Açaí Power Juice, Zola is made from 100% unfiltered pulp of these antioxidant-rich Açaí berries and infused with energy-sustaining Guaraná powder, giving consumers health and power in Amazon-sized quantities. Zola’s powerful combination of carbs, protein, and Guaraná caffeine is perfect for people on the go who need hours of sustained energy without a crash. Zola’s packaging is 12-month shelf stable, giving retailers the flexibility to sell Zola Açaí in produce coolers and on grocery shelves. Zola is sold nationally at Whole Foods, Wild Oats, and Vitamin Shoppe, and regionally at King Sooper, Ralphs, Wegmans and Costco. Zola is available in three flavors: Açaí Original, Açaí + Pineapple, and Açaí + Blueberry. For more information, visit www.DrinkZola.com.
