Minerco's Level 5 Places VitaminFIZZ(R) in SoCal Albertsons

HOUSTON, March 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), has started delivering its functional sparkling water line, VitaminFIZZ®, to Southern California Albertsons stores. This new account was placed through Avanzar Sales and Distribution, which is a subsidiary of Level 5. VitaminFIZZ will initially be available in 166 Albertsons locations in the Southern California region. This new key account brings the number of retail locations carrying VitaminFIZZ above 1,200 since the beverage launched in August of 2014.



"We are very excited to be associated with one of the largest grocers and most recognizable retailers in the world," says V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "Our first major grocery chain on the West Coast is a very significant achievement for us. Albertsons, currently completing its merger with Safeway, is another huge step to achieving true saturation of the Southern California market. Our hard work and marketable product is building momentum at a frantic pace. We believe 2015 is going to be a banner year for our company."

Starting this week, VitaminFIZZ will be a part of the Albertson's banner stores Universal Studios Spring Break promotion highlighting the Despicable Me attraction featured at checkout stands and in printed circular ads. VitaminFIZZ will also support the premium placements with continued sampling, radio and bill board advertising.

"As a leading brand in the low calorie carbonated category, VitaminFIZZ keeps growing from strength to strength," stated Darin Ezra, Brand Director for VitaminFIZZ. "With our first penetration in SoCal into a major grocery chain now underway, along with our tremendous success in Walgreens and Kmart stores, we see our sales and marketing initiatives unfolding as we had planned. We will continue to support this retail activity with aggressive sampling, radio, billboard and other advertising efforts. We anticipate that 2015 will be our year to become a dominant player in this burgeoning category."

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 locations within the NYC metro and Southern California markets as well as online at Amazon.com.
