Dewmar International BMC, Inc. (DEWM) Announces Exclusive Licensing Agreement for the Original Hemp-Based Iced Tea for National Distribution to Major Retailer

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- Dewmar International BMC, Inc. (OTCQB: DEWM) (OTCBB: DEWM) ("Dewmar" or "Company") today announced that it has entered into a one year distribution agreement with C+SWISS, the original and first hemp-based ice tea ever distributed in the United States. The agreement gives Dewmar the exclusive right to distribute the hemp-based ice tea nationwide to one of the world's largest retailers. The distribution agreement, effective immediately, continues Dewmar's recently announced initiatives to become one of the most successful licensees and creators of hemp-based products in the United States.

The agreement was signed with Chill Drinks, LLC, a Miami, Florida-based company, and the creator of both the award-winning C+SWISS (hemp-based ice tea) and Chillo (hemp-based energy beverage). C+Swiss is an all-natural iced tea which is sold in both specialty and large retailers, including Whole Foods. The product is distributed in over 10 countries, experiencing over 30% sales growth in the past 7 years. Currently, over half of the sales from hemp-based products are within the food and beverage category.

"We have carefully selected this product for distribution, and Chill Drinks as a partner for four reasons," said Dr. Marco Moran, CEO of Dewmar International. "First, we are confident that Chill Drinks has the production and management capacity to meet a high volume of fulfillment, as we are hopeful for a significant increase in sales orders. Second, the product is excellent and we are confident that it will continue to gain popularity already existing with consumers. Third, the product contains hemp, which will be a major focus of our growth throughout 2014 into the functional food and beverage categories. Fourth, C+SWISS' packaging attracts consumers, and the branding ability of the product to stand on its own merit in a competitive environment of limited retail beverage shelf space was a major part of our decision. We are thrilled that we have entered into this exclusive licensing agreement."

Marc Lewin, Chief Executive Officer of Chill Drinks said, "There are many cities and towns in which C+SWISS is not yet on the shelf. We are confident that this distribution agreement will allow us to rapidly and strategically roll out C+SWISS into new markets and onto shelves for mainstream consumers, so that they can all enjoy the benefits of hemp and a great tasting beverage. We are confident that this relationship with Dewmar will result in great things for both companies."

Hemp has remarkable therapeutic benefits. The seeds contain a more complete amino acid profile than red meat and fish while the Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower high blood pressure. Hemp is being studied in cancer, muscular sclerosis and whole host of other medical conditions.

Dewmar recently announced a co-branding and professional consulting agreement with a subsidiary of Hemp, Inc. (OTC Pink: HEMP), the Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company. As a result of the agreement, the Company will target thousands of smoke shops and head shops across the country simultaneously with multiple diverse product launches. Further details of these plans have not been unveiled at this time. "Dewmar's CEO has a work ethic second to none in that he has a voracious appetite to strategically plan for success then aggressively work the plan," says Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. "As a partner with a vested interest in Dewmar's continued success, we are here to consult and guide them in a direction that allows them to maximize their limitless revenue potential within this exploding industry," Perlowin continues.

Also, Dewmar has recently announced expectations for significant Q1-2014 revenue growth for Lean Slow Motion Potion,™ the company's flagship product and one of the most successful brands in the relaxation beverage category. Dewmar also announced earlier this month that it will aggressively seek numerous partnerships, joint ventures, exclusive product licensing agreements and/or acquisitions of companies and product lines within the industrial hemp and medical marijuana sectors that will add value to the Company's bottom line within this calendar year. Based on recent developments, it is difficult for Dewmar to determine sales projections resulting from this new distribution deal at this time.
