BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DNA Brands, Inc.

"We are extremely proud to have a distributor the caliber of SIBev on board and who has embraced our brand in the manner they have," said Eric Fowler, DNA's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Initial reports from our sales team and crew drive continue to be positive each day in opening up new accounts and gaining valuable and strategic placement locations on the shelves. Retailer and consumer acceptance of our new energy drink flavors has also been extremely encouraging. We believe we are off to an excellent start and anticipate the announcement of several new distributor partners, as well as new product offerings as we aggressively continue our expansion," concluded Fowler.

Butch Rhine, owner of SIBev stated "Although we just recently joined forces with DNA Brands in the southern Illinois and St Louis markets to sell and market DNA's complete line of five energy drinks and expected new coffee flavors, we were immediately impressed with DNA's level of support, the quality of their product, and the delicious taste profile. They have a flavor to satisfy all energy drinkers. We are anxiously awaiting the release of DNA's three new coffee flavors and are convinced that they will also be a major "hit" and an immediate industry leader with the addition of Carmel Machiato, Vanilla and Mocha. DNA is currently available in Crown Marts, Farm Fresh, Gas Marts and soon to be in JD Streett's. You will also find DNA in Borowiak's IGA, Super Value, Market Basket, Tom's Buy Right, and Tom's Buy Low," concluded Rhine.
