Multiple Capabilities Emerging, 4-Way Utility Puts the Brand in Front

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 2, 2017) -

Winning Brands Corporation (OTC PINK:WNBD) www.WinningBrands.com is launching a new program with fire departments, significantly improving the commercial outlook for Winning Brands' ReGUARD4 bunker gear cleaner in North America. The impact of the new program will be to deliver 4 times as many benefits to fire departments from the single ReGUARD4 solution, significantly increasing convenience and value to firefighters. This will move ReGUARD4 to the leadership position in its field by technical performance.

The program, in cooperation with select fire departments, is starting in the Montreal region effective immediately. The purpose of the program is to define protocols for the additional uses of ReGUARD4 that fire service personnel consider most beneficial in maintaining fire service assets. The resulting compendium of favorite uses, together with vetted procedures, will support marketing of ReGUARD4's expanded official uses across the sector. The program is being co-ordinated for Winning Brands through the company's new exclusive dealer for ReGUARD4 in the Quebec market., DSO - Distribution Sud-Ouest, www.dsoinc.ca. Quebec has approximately 700 fire departments and 23,000 fire fighters. ReGUARD4 material will appear on the DSO website in coming weeks, in stages. In North America there are over 25,000 fire departments and over 1 Million firefighters.

Before now, ReGUARD4 had been positioned exclusively as a bunker gear cleaner to remove fire-scene grime from protective garments worn by firefighters. Positive feedback from municipal fire services about broader usefulness of ReGUARD4 had been known anecdotally, but was not applied to marketing. Now, expansion of the official uses for ReGUARD4 is being made to include fire service equipment cleaning, vehicle cleaning, facilities cleaning and turnout gear cleaning. These additional types of maintenance are performed continuously, whether there are fires or not. ReGUARD4's new "4-way multiple use" strategy increases ReGUARD4's appeal to the fire services supply sector in USA and Canada, and the growing "disaster restoration" market, by delivering new convenience and value on top of performance. The new DSO program of cooperation with firefighters will specify and formalize these additional uses.

Winning Brands CEO, Eric Lehner, comments: "This program adds shareholder value to Winning Brands by demonstrating that a core asset, the ReGUARD4 brand, has greater commercial potential than presently appreciated. This is meaningful because it is our customers, the firefighters themselves, not a merely a "marketing department", confirming that our product is 4 times more useful to them. The knowledge gained through the Montreal protocols will be shared with ReGUARD4 dealers in America, including LaFrance Equipment Corporation and DiVal Safety Equipment, amongst others."

Winning Brands is coming out of a quiet period during which it was assessing how to regain earlier momentum. A recently announced $1.5 million Tier I offering under SEC Regulation A will enable Winning Brands to take new steps to better support its existing brands. These brands will eventually include new items in launch partnerships with innovators whose inventions represent exceptional opportunities for public shareholders.

It is a regular source of public information pertaining to the company pursuant to SEC Fair Disclosure guidelines.
