ABOUT NUTRIPURE BEVERAGES, INC.
NutriPure Beverages, Inc. (NUBV.PK) has been working to produce and distribute a line of nutrient-enhanced bottled water products that contain no calories, no carbohydrates, no colors and most importantly, no flavors other than pure water, and does this using a patented process that is more efficient and less costly than others currently in use. This concept is unique because no other producer adds organic nutrients without also adding masking flavors, colors or sweeteners. NutriPure has redirected its entire efforts to the premium bottled water industry and intends to market a full line of nutrient-enhanced water products to compete with currently available products such as VitaminWater and SmartWater. Initial products are expected to include those enhanced to provide vitamin support for general health, a diet formulation for weight watchers, an immune booster, an energy and fitness drink, and others. The company is also in the final stages of negotiations for the acquisition of assets for a second water company, and a further announcement regarding that transaction is expected very soon.
