DENVER, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DC Brands International, Inc., a publicly reporting company trading under the ticker symbol (OTC/HRDN - News), today announced that its consumer arm H.A.R.D. Nutrition confirmed that it has received initial shipments of new graphics from the first run of production and it will be in the hands of consumers before the end of the month.
The Company has shipped its first products with the new labels and graphics to retail outlets. Production is running for the first time since March. This inventory buildup allows HARD Nutrition to address a backlog of purchase orders and again begin shipments to individual consumers. First distribution will go to Military and retail locations in the Mountain Area with subsequent inventory shipping to its new markets in Southern California.
The new functional beverage graphics will be complemented by a complete dry supplement line of 10 day and 30 day offerings that will ensure that consumers will be able to avail themselves of the benefits of HARD Nutrition every day, or while on the go.
Stephen Horgan, CEO said, "We have a dual focus of driving revenue and ensuring that adequate production and inventory is available to meet the rising demand. I am encouraged that the new ownership group is committed to the vision of growing the Company gradually through grassroots availability and brand support. We are extremely optimistic that the complementary lines of beverage and dry products will meet all the needs of the nutrition-conscious consumer."
Horgan added, "This production run will enable HARD Nutrition to reinforce our brand presence in existing retail outlets as well as the military distribution channels. We have another production run scheduled for the beginning of December and anticipate that will allow us to fulfill distribution requirements in Southern California. This available inventory also allows us to ramp up our e-commerce division of the Company and increase our online sales. I see this as the first big step in our progress to establish this Company as a leader in the nutritional beverage sector."
