IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2016) - iBrands Corporation Inc.'s (OTC PINK: IBRC) subsidiary, Avita Beverage Company Inc., a leading provider of a Natural Premium Artesian Alkaline Water, is pleased to announce that its CEO, Clinton L. Stokes, III, has garnered attention from close business associates, high net worth individuals, who, based on the growth potential of Avita, have offered to provide as-needed funding for the relaunch and expansion of the Avita brand. Mr. Stokes has also personally provided the initial investment dollars to jump-start Avita's relaunch.
Clinton L. Stokes III states, "This is a great accomplishment for Avita, as it will help us continue our very aggressive marketing and distribution plans. Our team has been working hard resigning contracts as well as gaining new accounts. iBrands has an enormous amount of contacts within the C-Store community, so that's been keeping us very busy. It's been exciting to be able to leverage these contacts and introduce a new product like Avita. The feedback has been very positive, as there is not a natural, premium water product on the market quite like ours."
Mr. Stokes goes on to say, "We are currently working to finalize a distribution contract with a major Indian Tribe Distributor. They distribute to all Indian Reservation Grocery Stores in the U.S. as well as Indian Casinos and Indian Hotels. They also distribute to all Military Stores on bases throughout the United States, which will give us a major footprint in all 50 states."
Avita also has ongoing philanthropy projects, which include:
First Responder Program & Help To Those In Need.
Avita will mobilize and deliver bottled water to domestic areas where crisis has struck and water is urgently needed. Many cities throughout the country have similar issues like the one that affected Flint, Michigan, with the potential for lead exposure in their water supply. Fresh drinking water is needed until those issues can be resolved.
In addition, Avita has the utmost respect for those that have served our country and will continue to sponsor veteran's charities and donate water directly to those veterans in need.
Wells for Wellness.
In low- and middle-income countries, 38% of healthcare facilities lack any water source, 19% do not have improved sanitation and 35% lack water and soap for handwashing. Avita knows that something must be done about this and it must be a permanent, sustainable solution to alleviate the lack of pure drinking water sources throughout so much of the underdeveloped world. That is why Avita will be working in concert with a major philanthropic organization, conscientious celebrities and professional athletes to install numerous wells throughout the world in areas where there is no potable, safe water supply, providing a clean water source for millions of people throughout the world.
Avita Celebrity Endorsements
The Avita Management Team is working to bring on board key celebrities to serve as Brand Ambassadors. Discussions are evolving with Top Professional Athletes as well as Celebrity Musical Icons who will endorse and promote the brand through a multitude of social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. These key endorsements will put Avita on the radar of millions of their followers, driving brand recognition and product demand. Stay tuned for big announcements coming soon.
