HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - Dewmar International BMC, Inc. (OTCQB: DEWM) (OTCBB: DEWM) ("Dewmar" or "Company"), a worldwide leader in acquiring, developing and launching new brands, announced today that Company CEO and President Dr. Marco Moran and newly appointed Vice-President of International Affairs, Johnny Riley, is presently attending a weeklong trade mission exploring beverage and snack distribution throughout the United Kingdom. Dr. Moran anticipates returning to the U.S. with a potential distribution and brand management agreement for Lean Slow Motion Potion relaxation beverage, with one or more of several major multi-country beverage and snack distributors whose meetings were coordinated for Dewmar by the Mississippi Development Authority.
"We have meetings throughout the UK, starting in London, with four of the top food, snack and beverage distributors, brokers and brand development companies," said Dr. Marco Moran, CEO of Dewmar International "Following a business development focused briefing dinner at the prestigious Oxford and Cambridge Club, we anticipate that if we are successful in securing a deal with any one of these highly interested, world-class beverage industry icons, we could see significant interest in Dewmar from the European investment community."
"It was easy capturing the interest of major wholesalers and distributors in the greater U.K. for Dewmar International based upon the innovative branding, superb packaging, and the fact the beverage has gained significant traction in major retailers in the U.S., "said Tim Hall, CEO of ED Alliance, one of Europe's leading international business and economic development agencies. "Relaxation beverages are literally non-existent in the U.K. mass market and would be a perfect match for our retailers since it will not be directly competing with any other functional beverages currently on the shelves."
Mr. Richard Price, UK Representative to the State of Mississippi, Vice President of the Council for American States in Europe and Managing Member of Interpret International Limited, added, "Dr. Moran and Dewmar International are one of the most impressive corporations to visit London recently as part of the Mississippi delegation and to participate in one of the Oxford and Cambridge Club hosted events, attended by corporate executives, governors and diplomats of many U.S. and foreign states."
The United Kingdom has a GDP of $2.38 trillion and is easily the 4th or 5th largest economy in the world. According to the U.S. Commercials Services, the UK is the largest provider of tourists to the United States. The population is 63.7 million, growing half a percent annually. The core urban areas consist of an 8.7 million population in London, 2.2 million in Manchester and 2.3 million in Birmingham.
