Watsonville, California (September 10, 2007) Join the fun at Natural Products Expo East when Nordic Naturals hosts a “Cod-Tail” Party from 4 to 6 pm at their booth #1111. Retailers and press members can enjoy a tasty goblet of traditional Norwegian Mead, a honey-based fermented beverage that has been produced and enjoyed since before the dawn of recorded history!
The party kicks off the company’s special promotion, “The Golden Cod Experience”, which is open to all natural health retailers. Five thousand dark chocolate bars will be given away from September through October but only 5 will contain a winning “Golden Cod Experience” ticket. Winning ticket holders will receive an all expense paid trip to Nordic Naturals’ California headquarters in March of 2008 to enjoy an educational summit, special dinner and tour of the Monterey Bay aquarium for themselves and a guest. The chocolate bars will be handed out to the first 200 retailers that place an order at the show. The remainder of the bars will be mailed to retail buyers that have ordered product in third quarter of 2007.
Attendees are also invited to attend a lecture entitled “Fitness and Fish Oils” with special guest, author and weight loss expert Dr. Christopher Mohr, on Friday, September 28 from 11 am to 12 noon in Room 327, on the 300 level of the Baltimore Convention Center. Addressing the worldwide epidemic of obesity, Dr. Mohr will discuss how omega-3 fatty acids can play a role in maintaining normal body fat metabolism and promoting weight loss. In conjunction with sound nutrition and exercise programs, he will explain how the intake of these fats can support daily health and ideal body composition. Following the lecture, Dr. Mohr will be available to meet retailers and press members at Nordic Naturals booth #1111 from 1 to 3 pm.
