DENVER, May 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barfresh Food Group Inc. (OTCBB:BRFH) ("Barfresh Food Group" or the "Company"), a manufacturer and distributor of unique ready to blend beverages, is pleased to announce the following update of operations:
The Company has completed the installation of its proprietary manufacturing line, co-located at a well established dairy manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Currently, the first test packages are coming off the line, and the line is being prepared for final commissioning.
Once commissioned, the Company will be in position to progress relationships with parties that have expressed early interest in acquiring Barfresh Food Group's ready to blend smoothie packs. While there are no guarantees for initial orders, there is a high level of interest and the company is optimistic order flow will develop this summer.
Barfresh Food Group's CEO, Riccardo Delle Coste, was quoted as saying, "Demand for our products is being driven by the rapidly growing interest from Americans for healthy beverage alternatives, the necessity for their children to have healthier choices, and the addition of Smoothies to the menus of two of the largest Quick Serve Restaurant chains. Competitors are anxious to provide a similar menu offering as quickly as possible. It appears that we might have the perfect timing for our entry into the U.S. market."
Mr. Delle Coste goes on to say, "The success of having our products in 1100 outlets at our sister company in Australia gives us early credibility with large potential customers. The U.S. market is nearly 30 times the size of its counterpart in Australia, so we are anxious to get a foothold here." There are no assurances that the Company will enter into agreements with any of the interested parties.
