Minerco's Level 5 Expands VitaminFIZZ Distribution Network in SoCal

HOUSTON, April 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Level 5 Beverage Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Minerco Resources, Inc. (OTC:MINE), announced that the company has received its first purchase order from Unified Grocers to begin delivery of Level 5's functional sparkling water line, VitaminFIZZ®. Unified Grocers is a wholesale grocery distributor for independent retailers, serving more than 2,900 stores in the Western United States including premium store chains like Gelson's and Bristol Farms. Unified Grocers' retailers also include a large number of retailers serving and specializing in the U.S. Hispanic Market. Unified Grocers' initial multi-pallet (15,000 units) order includes all six flavors and is scheduled for delivery on April 27.



Unified Grocers is the first addition to the VitaminFIZZ distribution network in Southern California since Level 5 named Avanzar Sales and Distribution (a majority owned subsidiary of Level 5) as its master distributor. This deal with Unified Grocers reflects Level 5's need for a consortium of distributors, as a result of unprecedented demand for and rapid growth of VitaminFIZZ in SoCal.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Unified Grocers. Not only do they open the door to a massive network of retailers and grocers up and down the Southern California coast, they have given us the opportunity to introduce VitaminFIZZ to yet another key demographic and subset of consumers," says V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "Initial feedback from Unified's retail partners indicates a high level of confidence in the potential popularity of VitaminFIZZ throughout the Unified network, stemming from both its taste and its packaging. In many cases, VitaminFIZZ will be the first sparkling water on the shelves within the Unified network of stores."
