Distribution & Partnership

Nuzee, Inc. Partners with Custom Sales to Expand Coffee Blenders® Single Serve & Pour-over Distribution

VISTA, Calif., Jan. 4, 2017 — NuZee, Inc. (OTC: NUZE) ("NuZee" or "Coffee Blenders ®") is excited to start the new year by announcing its part­ner­ship with the Custom Sales & Marketing team. As a specialty foods broker, the Michigan company will take Coffee Blenders' revo­lu­tionary line of func­tional and organic coffee to the next level and push the brand throughout the Midwest region.

Providing both unique marketing and targeted sales strate­gies, the brokerage plans on creating strong part­ner­ships between Coffee Blenders' and the 2000 plus accounts of chain retailers as well as key inde­pen­dent grocers they service and supply. This enables the Coffee Blenders brand to leave a lasting impres­sion across Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Custom Sales & Marketing's under­standing of today's specialty food trends began with organic and natural foods and now spans to lifestyle foods as well as func­tional foods and bever­ages. They educate customers and grocers on these food trends and are known to consis­tently bring in inno­v­a­tive, creative product solu­tions. Custom Sales & Marketing repre­sents popular compa­nies with prod­ucts ranging from organic salty snacks to fair trade coffee and tea. With specialty foods as their specialty, the company's port­folio also consists of deep fried choco­late, sweet craft beer, gluten-free protein snacks, and now Coffee Blenders' gourmet Arabica, dark roast coffee.

This collab­o­ra­tion is the perfect setting for the Coffee Blenders line to soon emerge as a national coffee brand. The brokerage will oversee the on-premise manage­ment of some of Coffee Blenders' current accounts within the region and break ground with new retailers. They will assist with presenting new items, plan­ning and managing promo­tions and providing consumer and retailer feed­back and support for the entire line of func­tional single-serve cups and the first-to-market pour over drip cups.

Coffee Blenders' momentum continues to grow as this collab­o­ra­tion follows the recent news of part­ner­ships and distri­b­u­tion deals the company secured with D.C Scott & Associates Food Brokerage, Inc., United Naturals Foods, Inc. and KeHE Distributors, LLC.
