Major Retail Chains Expand VitaminFIZZ(R) Program & Placement

HOUSTON, March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), announces its functional sparkling water line, VitaminFIZZ®, has completed the market tests in both Walgreens and Kmart, two of the product's key accounts in Southern California. Based on sales performance and customer demand, VitaminFIZZ programming and placement in the two retail giants has been extended throughout 2015.





The extended programming and permanent placement includes the approval of a VitaminFIZZ promotional calendar for the remainder of 2015. This "proof of concept" follows a hugely successful test market period with these demanding key accounts. Since opening these key accounts, Avanzar, the Southern California distributor for VitaminFIZZ, has delivered over 20,015 cases (more than 240,000 bottles) of VitaminFIZZ into the approximately 300 participating Walgreens and Kmart locations in Southern California.

"Going from initial test placement to full-time placement in just a few short months is undeniably our proof of marketplace success," says V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "Southern Californians are choosing VitaminFIZZ as their healthier beverage option. Our key accounts have recognized the success of our flagship product, and we are excited they have decided to expand the relationship beyond the initial test into a long term relationship. This quantitative success provides us with verifiable data to start approaching more retailers in more geographic markets."

VitaminFIZZ recently ran promotions in all of its Southern California key account locations. These promotions included radio advertising, out-of-home, targeted database marketing and in-store sampling. VitaminFIZZ was featured in the "Ryan's Buyin'" segment on the Ryan Seacrest Radio Show, which airs weekday mornings in Los Angeles.

Currently, VitaminFIZZ, the only sparkling water that offers 100% of the Recommended Daily Intake of Vitamin B3, B5, B6, B12 and Vitamin C, can be found in over 1,050 locations within the Southern California, NYC metro and Las Vegas markets as well as online at Amazon.com. Store locations are updated regularly at www.vitamin-fizz.com/stores.html.
