VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Clearly Canadian (OTCBB:CCBEF – News; the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its new line-up of Natural Enhanced Waters (dailyEnergy, dailyVitamin and dailyHydration, a certified organic essence water) has been listed with Loblaws, Canada’s largest supermarket chain and will be available in all of their Natural Value departments. This, combined with almost 100 new recent supermarket outlet listings in Western Canada, continues the pattern of major retailer acceptance of this innovative new product line.
Brent Lokash, CEO of Clearly Canadian, stated, “We are very pleased with the listing of our new waters at Loblaws, which is already a large customer of both our organic and natural snacks line and our My Organic Baby food line. Securing this account is a great example of the effectiveness of our business plan, which is to develop and/or acquire healthy product lines with sales strategies that compliment our existing products and to then employ any and all cross selling opportunities.”
Added Lokash, “We believe our Natural Enhanced Waters, which are showing double digit month over month sales increases since they were launched in April (20% and 50%), also have significant potential in the U.S. where we are just starting to launch the product:
. A tremendous opportunity has been created for us by the recently announced acquisition of the Vitamin Water brand by Coke for $4.1 billion cash. We believe our Natural Enhanced Waters are uniquely positioned to fill any void left with the brand’s current distributors, many of which are already distributors for Clearly Canadian;
. Our dailyVitamin water has less than 25% of the calories of the major enhanced water beverages such as Vitamin Water and our organic dailyHydration water has flavor with no calories and no artificial sweeteners. These products provide a healthy selection for the U.S. school systems which are now being directed to serve beverages with minimal calories;
. Our dailyEnergy water is a much lower calorie energy drink than the current leading energy drinks, providing a more pleasant beverage experience for the health conscious consumer that is looking for an energy boost without all the calories and preservatives.”
