SoLo GI Energy Bar Receives Gold Award and BC Ministry Small Business Feature Following the Release of Two New Flavours

SoLo GI – Leading the slow carb revolution.

KELOWNA, BC, Oct. 19, 2016 /CNW/ - Inspired to revolutionize the health food industry and make healthy eating easy, Saul Katz, founder of Kelowna, BC's SoLo GI Nutrition, is making a real difference in people's lives – one energy bar at a time.  What originally started as a small company with a big idea, SoLo GI Energy Bars have expanded across Canada, and consumers and industry organizations are taking note. 

SoLo's proprietary, great tasting formulation has earned  the company  recognition from two well-respected organizations – Alive Magazine and BC's Ministry of Small Business.

OCT 3rd, 2016 - Alive Magazine announces SoLo GI Energy Bar wins four awards including Gold for Best Weight Management Product.

OCT 19th, 2016 - BC Ministry of Small Business recognizes Solo GI Energy Bars as "Raising the bar in the food industry," featuring the SoLo story and an informative interview with founder Saul Katz. "SoLo GI is focused on improving people's lives, and with the help of provincial programs to grow the business, we are able to provide a quality product for people in British Columbia, across Canada and soon in the United States as well."

These accolades follow the announcement of the release of two new flavours, which launched Oct 1st, 2016. Caramel Peanut Sea Salt and White Chocolate Cherry were a hit from the moment they were released, bringing the total flavour count to 10 irresistible choices.

SoLo GI Nutrition was also featured in the Canadian Business Journal's March 2015 publication for the company's work in food innovation.  "SoLo has been very fortunate to have experienced unprecedented support and encouragement from retail buyers, store owners and leading industry figures across Canada, and we share in the celebration of this recognition with our supporters," says Katz.

The result of years of research and development with the objective of improving the lives of Canadians, SoLo GI Energy and Nutrition Bars bring the benefits of low glycemic nutrition to households across Canada by delivering sustained energy and satiety while keeping blood sugar levels nice and steady.
