TORONTO, May 2, 2016 /CNW/ - GreenSpace Brands Inc. ("GreenSpace") (TSXV: JTR) is pleased to announce that its Central Roast brand has initiated significant new distribution with Costco Canada East. Costco represents a new distribution channel for GreenSpace and showcases a developing part of the GreenSpace strategy of accessing consumers across the full spectrum of retailers in Canada. The newly created product, a functional "Superfood" mix of nuts, seeds and dried fruits in a large format bag, will be available in up to 60 Costco warehouses in Eastern Canada starting in July 2016. The "Superfood" mix was designed with purpose versus the traditional flavour based mixes and will be displayed in off-shelf pallet drop displays, a unique way to feature the Central Roast brand.
"This new distribution win is proof that our strategy of acquiring not only the best brands, but the best teams in the natural food industry is working exceedingly well." says Matthew von Teichman, CEO of GreenSpace Brands. "The Central Roast team, now a part of the GreenSpace team, have been doing an excellent job of leveraging their deep industry relationships to win new distribution not only in the grocery channel in Canada, but now in the warehouse channel with Costco. We hope to continue to develop new programs for Costco, which has become a significant player in the North American health food market.
Since GreenSpace completed the acquisition of Central Roast in late February, Central Roast has seen significant added distribution through Sobeys, Costco, FarmBoy, Whole Foods and throughout the natural food channel. These distribution gains further solidify Central Roast in its position as the countries #1 brand of functional snacks. GreenSpace is hopeful to continue to win new distribution for all of its internally developed, and newly acquired brands.
