Leading Online Fresh Food Grocer is First to Offer Nutritious Super Smoothie Brand Outside of the NYC Metro Area.
New York, NY, March 07, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -Green Mustache announced today that the company’s organic fruit and green veggie juice smoothies for children are now available for sale through online grocer FreshDirect. This partnership marks the first distribution outside of the metro New York City area for the innovative new brand.
“We’re very excited to be working with FreshDirect to expand our distribution, enabling us to offer Green Mustache to more consumers,” said VanTrang Manges, CEO and Founder of Green Mustache. “Both Green Mustache and FreshDirect are committed to offering today’s busy customer high-quality products that are good for you and convenient. As a mother and entrepreneur, I’m glad that, through this partnership, we’ll be able to make eating nutritiously a bit easier for FreshDirect customers.”
FreshDirect, a pioneer in the online grocery retail channel, services the greater New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Delaware metro areas, as well as the greater Philadelphia area, with a focus on providing customers with the best-tasting, freshest, top quality foods and meals.
“We are thrilled that Green Mustache will now be available at FreshDirect,” said Tim Milano, SVP, Merchandising at FreshDirect. “FreshDirect customers are looking for nutritious options for their families and for this reason, Green Mustache is the perfect addition to our offerings.”
Made with real fruits and vegetables, each 10-ounce bottle of Green Mustache provides one serving of fruits and one serving of vegetables from spinach and kale, as well as super ingredients chia and coconut water. All three “kid tested” flavors – Strawberry Banana, Orange Mango and Mixed Berry – are also USDA-certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and gluten-free. There are also no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors in Green Mustache, and no added sugars – only those sugars naturally found in the fruits are inside the bottle.
Green Mustache made its national debut at the Natural Products EXPO East in September 2013. In October 2013, Green Mustache’s unique offering was recognized as a finalist in the “Best Children’s Drink” category at the Beverage Innovation Awards at Drinktec, where more than 30 brands worldwide were considered for the award.
VanTrang Manges has also made it a part of the Green Mustache mission to improve the lives of children by committing a percentage of sales to support non-profit organizations working to prevent childhood hunger and malnutrition.
“The idea for Green Mustache came to me while I was trying to make healthy eating more fun for my family, but it has now led to an even larger goal,” said Manges. “Every child deserves a healthy start, and I truly hope Green Mustache grows into a company that can help create that reality.”
