HOOD RIVER, Ore., Mar. 11, 2004 – Carbsense Foods outpaces competitors by adding more than 1,400 General Nutrition Centers (GNC) to its list of retailers. The GNC deal helped Carbsense Foods reach a major milestone of more than 10,000 stores that carry its products, further validating the company’s status as the low-carb foods industry leader.
“Our new partnership with GNC increases our forward momentum in product availability,” says Jim Haun, president of Carbsense Foods. “GNC has a great reputation with consumers, and our relationship helps us reach a higher goal of helping a greater number of people maintain good health and wholesome eating habits with foods low in carbohydrates.”
The new agreement is one among several recent inroads that Carbsense has made in increased distribution, expanded infrastructure and diversified product offerings. Carbsense is now better positioned to provide consumers more of the products they want, where they want them.
“GNC is a natural fit for us, with a customer-base of shoppers already seeking products that promote a healthier lifestyle,” says Kevin Dalrymple, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Carbsense Foods.
GNC joins the ranks of leading health, natural foods and grocery stores that carry the company’s Carbsense, AramanaTM and MiniCarbTM brands, including Wal-Mart, Kroger, Fred Meyer, QFC, Albertsons, Giant Foods, Shaw’s, Whole Foods Market, Safeway and Vitamin Shoppe among others.
Carbsense offers something for every customer interested in reducing daily carbohydrates, with over 40 items, including entrees, salty snacks, baking mixes, cereals and energy bars. With a proven sales record, a great product line, excellent customer service and on-time delivery, Carbsense makes sense for both retailers and consumers.
