LOS ANGELES– Barfresh today announced the launch of its new Twist & Go ready-to-drink Smoothies.

“We are proud to see our Twist & Go bottled smoothies help schools feed children. Our products are specially formulated to work for both schools and students, delivering a healthy and tasty option for the children,” says Riccardo Delle Coste, CEO of Barfresh, the organization behind the launch of Twist & Go Smoothies.

Stephanie Spicknall, RD, LD, Food & Nutrition Services Assistant Director of Pasco County Schools,commented, “We are thrilled to introduce the Twist & Go smoothies to our students.
