PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2007 -- Viva World Trade, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VVWT) (the "Company" or "Viva") and its Mexican subsidiary Canmex Imports ("Canmex"), the exclusive importer and national distributor of the "mike's hard lemonade" brand family in Mexico, are pleased to announce the Company has been approved for listing "mike's" products with nationwide retailer Organizacion Soriana, Mexico's second largest supermarket chain.
