BOULDER, Colo., July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EVOL Foods, Boulder-based maker of made-from-scratch natural and organic frozen food, is proud to announce a new partnership with Zipongo. The San Francisco based technology company empowers healthy and sustainable living through tailored meal, exercise, sleep and "healthy deal" plans. EVOL will be featuring its burritos, wraps, and gluten-free entree bowls through Zipongo's Healthy Deals--a combination of innovative social media promotions and in-store marketing, in a continuous effort to expose shoppers to healthier meal options.
"EVOL is very excited to be one of Zipongo's first partners and reach consumers through a new and fun interactive social media format," said Chris Mears, EVOL Foods vice president of sales. "There are a lot of different coupon options out there through websites and social media outlets, but none that partners with specific retailers in a specific marketplace and gives consumers great value."
With today's overwhelming selection of food products, consumers are unknowingly exposed to brands that use deceptive advertising and labeling. Zipongo exposes customers only to natural and organic brands that are nutritionally balanced and deliver what they promise so shoppers can be confident they are being introduced to brands that have their best interests at heart. Zipongo's Healthy Deals will help new customers with previously limited exposure to natural brands try healthier foods, and with a companion loyalty program in the works, will make healthier eating accessible to many more people.
"EVOL made sense as a partner because they are passionate natural and high-quality. Their grab-and-go sizes, great taste, fun brand experience and well-rounded nutrition fit our criteria for being convenient, fun and healthy, " said Jason Langheier M.D., M.P.H., Zipongo founder. "EVOL is making it easy to LOVE healthy food again."
