DENVER, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DC Brands International, Inc., a publicly reporting company under the ticker symbol (OTC: HRDN), today announces that Brand Aspirations founder, and H.A.R.D. Nutrition's President and COO, Stephen F. Horgan, has identified the constructs, partnerships, and resources necessary to bring H.A.R.D. Nutrition to the broader U.S. market in the next 6-12 months.
Stephen F. Horgan, President and COO said, 'It is time for Colorado to share H.A.R.D. Nutrition with the rest of the country. The functional beverage consumer is starving for a product that will deliver the specific benefits they seek beyond the usual hydration and energy....H.A.R.D. Nutrition is that product. Not only does this brand meet the minimal elements of entry, it provides consumers specific brands that will make them healthier and help them perform better every day. H.A.R.D. Nutrition has been a well kept Colorado secret. With expansion into Jewell-Osco, and the 2012 second-half retail strategy, the country will come to know what H.A.R.D. Nutrition is…. It works."
Under Horgan, the company has three core objectives; accelerate revenue, calibrate its supply chain, and build brand awareness. As such, it is preparing to expand its base from Colorado, and has identified the partnerships, operating capital, and distribution channels to accomplish this. The H.A.R.D Nutrition brand will be marketed to its target consumer to accelerate revenue, vitalize operations, and lead to awareness, usage, adoption and growth.
Horgan continued, "I am very excited about the new graphics and labels. These will complement the proprietary "flip-top-cap" supplement delivery system. They are now perfectly designed to catch the consumer's eye, and immediately communicate the benefits of our H.A.R.D. Nutrition Functional Water Systems. With fantastic tasting beverages combined with greatly beneficial nutrients and supplements, the consumer wins, and does not have to settle. I'm telling you, this is an example of where 'GNC meets Whole Foods.'"
The release of the new labels and innovative packaging coincides with Horgan's meetings and planning at BevNet, which is happening in New York City next week.
