Twist & Go to be Supplied to 76 Army & Air Force School Installations

AAFES School Meal Program Serves 3 Million Meals in a Single School Year

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barfresh Food Group Inc. (the “Company” or “Barfresh”) (OTCQB: BRFH), a provider of frozen, ready-to-blend and ready-to-drink beverages, today announced that it was awarded a five-year contract from the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) for its Twist & Go product to be part of the AAFES School Meal Program. Barfresh successfully won this contract due to Twist & Go meeting USDA guidelines under its Child Nutrition Program, which allows schools to seek reimbursement for meals served, and the yogurt component allows the product to be shipped frozen overseas and maintain shelf life freshness. Barfresh has started shipping Twist & Go product and it will be served to students in 76 schools across 9 countries overseas.

The Exchange School Meal Program provides wholesome, nutritious meals to eligible students in participating Outside Continental United States (OCONUS) Department of Defense schools. The Exchange provides school lunch to K-12 students in 76 school cafeterias on Army and Air Force installations in 9 countries overseas. In the 2020-2021 school year, the Exchange served an average of 17,700 meals per day for a total of more than 3 million meals over the school year including Grab and Go meals for service during the pandemic.

Riccardo Delle Coste, Chief Executive Officer of Barfresh commented, “We began our relationship with the U.S. military over three years ago when we were approved to sell our smoothie products into all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. I’m proud to extend that relationship with today’s announcement and further support our military and their families. The Exchange follows the same USDA guidelines as schools throughout the United States, thereby making our Twist & Go product the perfect addition to their school meal program as our product meets those stringent guidelines and is loved by students and administrators. Twist & Go has proven to have many expansion opportunities as it helped grow our presence in the domestic school channel doubling the number of school locations serving our product. Now it is expanding our reach internationally within the education channel.”
