New Leaf Brands, Inc. (NLEF 0.15, -0.05, -25.00%) ("Company"), a provider of great tasting, all natural, healthy beverages, announced its new line of lemonades has been named the winner of the "Best of 2010 Non-carbonated Beverage" award at the BevNet Live Winter 10 forum. New Leaf's new product line of four lemonades made with 6%-10% real fruit juice and sweetened with 100% organic cane sugar, stole the show. Eric Skae, President and Chief Executive Officer of New Leaf Brands, accepted the award Monday December 6th at the BevNet Live: Best of 2010 Awards presentation dinner. BevNet Live 10 is the premier beverage industry event being held December 5-6 at the Lowes Hotel in Santa Monica, California.
Eric Skae, New Leaf President and CEO, stated, "We are honored and excited to receive the Best of 2010 award for our Lemonades at BevNet Live. Not surprising, we received overwhelming demand for our new lemonades when they hit the market earlier this year, selling out the first three production runs in record time. The award exemplifies what our dedicated fans already know about our beverages, they 'Just Taste Better(TM)', but what else would you expect from the Official Beverage of Taste(TM)? Our overall case sales for our full beverage line-up continue to gain momentum in our key markets as more and more chain stores stock the shelves with New Leaf. We expect even greater demand as we enter the New Year, and add new great tasting flavors to our line-up, which we are sure will take the beverage world by storm."
