Celsius joins the Country’s Largest Independent Bottler’s Portfolio
Delray Beach, FL—November 6, 2008— Celsius Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:CSUH) announced today that it is teaming up with Polar Beverages, the country’s largest independent soft drink bottler, to grow distribution throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Albany, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, northern New York, and other areas. The decision for Polar to take on Celsius® as a new choice for savvy retailers adds significant muscle to the distribution Celsius currently has in the Northeast. Celsius, the Original Calorie Burner which has been scientifically formulated and clinically tested to burn up to 100 calories or more per serving, tastes great and sustains energy.
According to Ralph Crowley, CEO of Polar Beverages, “We have a long and rich history, but pride ourselves in staying on top of consumer trends. The functional beverage category is growing and our customers expect us to carry the best brands. We have watched Celsius grow and believe the timing is right to launch to the Northeast in a big way. Celsius created the calorie burning category and they have the science to back up their claims. In today’s discriminating market, consumers are searching for functional beverages that taste great and are backed by scientific research. Celsius fits that bill perfectly.”
Steve Haley, CEO of Celsius Holdings, Inc., based in Delray Beach, Florida, is thrilled with this new partnership with Polar Beverages. He states, “With Polar as our distribution partner in this important part of the country, we will be able to more aggressively add key retailers and step up our consumer focused marketing. Growing a new brand and category takes great partners. Polar’s history, reach, execution and reputation make them a wonderful partner for Celsius.”
