Boulder, CO (April 19, 2006) — New Hope Natural Media announced today the launch of the New Products Launch Pad ( www.nplp.com), a new online new products portal for the natural products industry.
The New Products Launch Pad ("NPLP") enables manufacturers, marketers and suppliers of VMS, natural, organic and specialty products to introduce and promote their new product offerings to natural, specialty & VMS retailers via the internet.
"We did our research and asked natural products retailers what the market was missing and what tools they could use. What we found was that a significant communication disconnect exists between manufacturers and retailers when it comes to new products. If you manage a small independent store, you don't get enough attention from your vendors. And if you're a large store or chain, you get too much attention. The New Products Launch Pad aims to put information and power back into the hands of retailers when they want it," said Fredrik Linder, President of New Hope Natural Media.
NPLP offers retailers and purchasing agents instant, easily accessible information about the newest products and ingredients via www.nplp.com and allows them to immediately connect and communicate with the manufacturers of those products.
