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.
