Active Health Foods, Inc. (AHFD) Names John Griffin Its New CEO Company Makes Change in Advance of Proposed Merger Plans

RIVERSIDE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 20, 2015 / Active Health Foods, Inc. (AHFD) announces that major changes are on the horizon and in preparation for them, the maker of "Active X(TM)" 100% Organic Certified, 100% Natural, Kosher and Vegan Certified Energy Bars and "All Natural Flavors," a sparkling, flavored, sugar free beverage, has promoted John Griffin as its new CEO. Griffin takes the reigns from previous CEO, E. Robert Gates, who recently resigned his post. Gates remains an active advisor to Active Health Foods, Inc.

While he is the new CEO, John Griffin is by no means new to Active Health Foods, Inc., its products or the proposed merger that will grow the company exponentially, boost its potential for profitability and expand its brand both within and beyond the health foods marketplace. Griffin has worked behind the scenes at Active Health Foods, Inc. for the past seven months as a consultant, orchestrating this proposed merger and new corporate direction.

"I have enjoyed working with Mr. Griffin over the past 7 months and his role in our proposed merger and I will continue to be working with him as an advisor in the future. I am pleased to find someone with the business and operational experience that Mr. Griffin brings to lead the next chapter in Active Health Foods, Inc. His energy and focus on operations in the companies that he has managed in the past will be a plus for the future of Active Health Foods, Inc. Mr. Griffin not only has the management and operational experience that we need for the future, he has experience in sourcing, manufacturing and distribution that will bode well for the products we presently have and hope to have in the future," said Mr. Gates.

"We couldn't be more excited about the company with which we plan to merge," Griffin says of his immediate strategy for enhancing the Active Health Foods brand and profitability. "That company already has multiple revenue-producing operations that will immediately increase the Active Health Foods, Inc. bottom line and increase our shareholders' value."

Griffin expects to complete that proposed merger within 60 days and will announce specific details about it once the process is fully executed.

As for how that proposed merger will impact Active Health Foods, Inc.'s business and marketing models, Griffin says first and foremost it will grow the company's existing product and distribution. It will also lead the company more squarely into the Direct Selling marketing structure for current and future health and wellness products and for a virtual product it will acquire through the proposed merger process.

"Active Health Foods, Inc. already has synergistic relationships with the company with which we wish to merge," Griffin explains. “This new direction will enable us to cut cost by streamlining resources we share with our proposed merger partner. It's a winning strategy for our company, its employees and our shareholders," Griffin says.
