Twist & Go Product to be Distributed Through G&J Pepsi’s Chilled Distribution Network

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barfresh Food Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Barfresh”) (Nasdaq: BRFH), a provider of frozen, ready-to-blend and ready-to-drink beverages, today announced it has entered into a distribution arrangement with G&J Pepsi-Cola Bottlers, Inc. (“G&J Pepsi”). The arrangement is the result of a pilot program between the two companies whereby G&J Pepsi successfully tested the operational capability of its distribution network to sell and handle Barfresh product, as well as measured customer feedback to the product. Under the distribution arrangement, G&J Pepsi will purchase Barfresh’s Twist & Go product and distribute it to its customers through its chilled distribution network. This is the same network through which G&J Pepsi also distributes other nationally known brands such as Tropicana, Kevita and Naked Juice. The arrangement has already started generating revenue for both Barfresh and G&J Pepsi.

G&J Pepsi is the largest independently owned and operated Pepsi franchise bottler and partners with some of the biggest global beverage brands such as Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Dr Pepper, Gatorade, Lipton, Starbucks, Aquafina, Muscle Milk, Bang, Rockstar and Bubly sparkling water.

Riccardo Delle Coste, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Barfresh has been able to attract top-tier distributors looking to add our excellent products to their lineup. G&J Pepsi works with over 30 of the best global beverage brands and we are excited to have successfully moved from a pilot program to a full rollout with their customers. Pepsi products are in almost every type of retail account in the United States, including schools, and we believe this arrangement will create incredible value for G&J Pepsi with the addition of Barfresh’s Twist & Go product.”
