Bebida Beverages and Potencia USA Have Outstanding NACS Debut

MOORESVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) - At the four day NACS trade show in Las Vegas, Bebida Beverages (PINKSHEETS: BBDA) and Potencia USA forged forward in the growth of this young and exciting company. With nearly every major C-store chain in attendance the stage was set for Bebida representatives to showcase their new Koma Unwind products.

Company representatives met with distributors and executives from countless chains across the country, and many potential distribution chains in the global market. The next couple of weeks will be spent following up with connections made with companies in Brazil, Croatia, New Zealand, UK, Mexico and several other countries. Companies like McLane Company Inc., one of the nation's leaders in food and beverage supply, were met by Bebida with promising dialogue. The product buyer for over 400 7-11 stores in Australia showed substantial interest in both the Koma Unwind, and the Koma Unwind shots. VP Daisy Ramirez met with several company executives from Central and South America, and is confident in the progress being made to expand the availability of the product line in these regions.

The Koma Unwind "Chillaxation Drink ™" was an absolute sensation. "Koma was received very well by everyone we met with (including a competitor in that particular beverage category) -- it was a terrific event and the connections we made with retailers and distributors would have taken months without a venue like this to showcase our products," said CEO Brian Weber. To continue riding the wave of interest generated by the show, Bebida Beverages will be working tirelessly to secure contracts and distribution partners.

POTENCIA Energy Drink is a 3-year-old Latin energy drink. POTENCIA is made with real fruit concentrate that is imported from Mexico and Central America. Potencia was developed for Latinos but enjoyed by everyone! Potencia also offers a berry flavored 2 oz. energy shot, accurately named Potencia Blast!

Bebida Beverages Co. is the maker and developer of several beverages including: Piranha Water, Guppy Water, Koma Unwind (Relaxation Beverage) and Koma Shot.
