Heathrow Natural Food & Beverage, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRNF) is pleased to announce it has completed another distribution agreement for its Super Food brand ACAI Plus chewing gum for distribution in Japan. Japan is one of the most health minded countries in the world and is a heavy user of natural botanical ingredients. The Super Food nutritional drink "Exfuze" is extremely popular in Japan, making it a natural and potentially lucrative market for ACAI Plus chewing gum.
"Asia is the fastest growing market in the world, with a population who has relied on the use of natural remedies for over 1,000 years. Eastern medicine is based on natural healing and the use of botanicals and other super foods. ACAI Plus is a natural botanical chewing gum product loaded with anti-oxidants, which will have an immediate appeal to the Japanese consumer. In Japan, brand awareness and loyalty is spread by word of mouth and ACAI Plus should prove to be very popular. We will initially deliver 500,000 units to the Japanese market for distribution in Tokyo, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya and Sapporo, which represents over 20 million consumers," said Michael Pagnano, CEO of Heathrow Natural Food & Beverage, Inc.
