NOHO, Inc. Expands Distribution Into Japanese Market

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2015) - Scottsdale, AZ based company NOHO, Inc. (OTC PINK: DRNK) has signed a distribution contract with Worldwide Group, for exclusive distribution rights in Japan for NOHO's 2 oz. shot "The Hangover Defense," as well as, its NOHO Gold 8.4 oz.

The agreement with Worldwide Group includes an exclusive 10-year distribution term for the NOHO products, along with, an aggressive guaranteed yearly minimums of purchase by Worldwide Group. NOHO products will be showing up on shelves in Japan as soon as the summer of 2016.

The expansion to the Japanese market seems like a no-brainer based upon the success NOHO has seen in Hong Kong, Macau and Korea. "We are seeing tremendous success with NOHO Gold in Korea. We wanted to further our territory of distribution to include Japan. We have a very strong distribution network in Japan and feel that the NOHO products will be a perfect fit with the Japanese culture," states Worldwide Group's CEO, Scott Kim.

Japanese citizens consume approximately 7.2 liters of alcohol per capita, per year, according to the World Health Organization. The Japanese culture is no stranger to drinking being a part of business meetings and a majority of alcohol consumption consists of "salaried businessmen who claim that [drinking] with clients or coworkers is part of their job and a mark of company loyalty. To refuse a drink from the boss is a terrible insult that can damage a career" (CMAJ, 2002).

NOHO, Inc. CEO, Jay Grdina, is excited about the 10 year, exclusive Japanese distribution deal with Worldwide Group, stating, "We continue to see success in the Asian markets with our NOHO products. Japan will be another great territory for distribution and we should have product on the shelves there in the summer of 2016. Our brand continues to dominate and evolve in its categories."
