VitaminSpice /quotes/comstock/11k!vtms (VTMS 0.22, +0.02, +8.91%) (http://www.vitaminspice.net/). On June 21, 2010 the first VitaminSpice products were delivered to the national pharmacy chain, Walgreens. Over the next couple of days hundreds of cases will be shipped to stores in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
VitaminSpice vendors and partners have moved with extraordinary speed and professionalism to fill this first Walgreens order. This is the first phase of a large scale rollout of the VitaminSpice product line to and throughout the Walgreens chain in North America. VitaminSpice is proud to be a part of the effort co-sponsored by Walgreens to help feed children that are going hungry in the United States.
In far too many instances, the primary meal for children is at school. As the school year ends, these children lose that food and will go hungry. It is estimated that in the Detroit Metro Market alone, 1 in 3 children will be hungry over the hot summer. This is a national problem that is being addressed by companies such as Walgreens. In the Detroit Metropolitan region, Forgotten Harvest, http://www.forgottenharvest.org/ a non-profit organization, has been on a mission to feed the hungry for two decades.
"In addition to Walgreens, we already have interest from several significant food and ingredient manufacturers. The main effort now and going forward for VitaminSpice is to properly manage the massive rollout of the product to the market here in the USA and then worldwide," stated Bukstel.
VitaminSpice is committed to this effort and it is a core mission to increase the nutritional value of foods by enhancing ordinary condiments such as spices, sauces, etc. with vitamins that will increase the health and wellness of children, families, and busy adults.
VitaminSpice is uniquely positioned between the $125 billion health food/vitamin supplement industry and the multi-trillion-dollar traditional food industry. A pioneer in the emerging foodceutical industry, VitaminSpice sells vitamin-, mineral- and antioxidant-infused spices and food products. Their offerings include Crushed Red Pepper, Ground Black Pepper, Italian Seasoning, Ground Cinnamon and Granulated Garlic.
