Avanzar Shows Significant Growth in October

BREA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On the heels of a recent acquisition and capital investment by Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc. through its parent company Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), Avanzar Sales and Distribution, specializing in early stage consumer brands, announces major gains in organic company growth. This growth includes (1) incremental sales increases, (2) increased scope of product offerings, (3) an increase in the size of its servicing area and (4) technological and efficiency advances.





"We are extremely delighted, but not surprised, in the tremendous progress Avanzar has made in October," said V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "Not only has our partnership garnered an initial boost of sales and retail outlets for our products, it has begun to increase our bottom line as Avanzar continues its fast track to growth. This exciting, expedited and organic growth in sales and revenue for Avanzar will directly, immediately and positively impact top line revenues for Minerco and its shareholders."

As a result of Avanzar's efforts, new placements and orders were received for VitaminFIZZ® in 2 additional major national chains (with additional chains scheduled in coming months) in Southern California. The functional sparkling beverage will be placed in the additional chain locations over the coming weeks and months. Other consumable brands supplied by Avanzar to these accounts include, Cabana Lemonades and Coconut Water, Yo Gabba Gabba by Kids 50, Spicy Beer Michelada Cups and Popcornopolis Gourmet Popcorn.

With October's advancements, Avanzar also saw increased orders for Avanzar's supermarket chain deliveries of beverage lines Zenify and Mr Pink Ginseng Drink and has added Lotus Elixirs and SAMU Coconut Waters to these supermarket deliveries starting on the 3rd of November.

Additionally, Avanzar Sales will provide a leading retail chain with two limited holiday flavors of Popcornopolis Gourmet Popcorn. Avanzar begins delivery of Candy Cane and White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice flavors to all 284 Walgreens Southern California locations beginning November 21, 2014.

Avanzar also inked a six figure deal to be the sole source supplier for Color Spot Nurseries poinsettias in all Southern California Walgreens. According to the deal, the bright red potted plants hit the shelves on November 21st, 2014.

With the addition of the drinkable yogurt brand, FruZinga, Avanzar has also added refrigeration to its fleet and warehousing. Avanzar plans to continue to expand its staff and fleet (including more refrigeration) over the coming weeks and months. This addition paves the way for bringing in additional brands which require refrigeration, including the next generation in coffee creamers: Vitamin Creamer®.

"It really has been a milestone month for the Avanzar team. The key to our recent success lies in the passion we have for the brands in our portfolio. We strive to work with young, unique companies and develop, nurture and implement sales through every step of the process," said Avanzar President, Mr. Bill Juarez. "With the new support from Level 5, we are in a fortunate position to expand as needed, so there is really no stopping us."

Avanzar increased its direct store delivery account coverage by 16% this month. As a result, the company has initiated two new sales routes as of November 3, 2014. Additionally, Avanzar initiated the installation of the Encompass all-in-one software for direct store delivery beverage distributors. The Encompass system is state of the art and is widely used by some of the largest, most well-known distributors in the world. See www.encompass8.com for more details.

In October, Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., whose parent company is Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), acquired a controlling interest in Avanzar. Avanzar is also a major distributor for Level 5's flagship product: VitaminFIZZ. The partnership is seen as a key part of both companies' business models and is expected to grow top line revenues for both parties.
