KonaRed Corporation Executes Sales & Marketing Agreement to Expand Major U.S. Distribution Deal With Splash Beverage Group

KOLOA, HI -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- KonaRed Corporation (OTCBB: KRED) (OTCQB: KRED), manufacturers of Antioxidant Juices derived from the exclusive, world famous Hawaiian CoffeeBerry®, coffee fruit from Kona, Hawaii, announced today that it has formally expanded its relationship with Splash Beverages Group by signing a Sales and Marketing Agreement to complement the Distribution Agreement.

Shaun Roberts, CEO of KonaRed, said, "As we moved to finalize our distribution agreement with Splash, we all began to see more ways we could cooperate to further expand sales channels and support for KonaRed's beverages. This led us to create an additional Sales and Marketing Agreement. KonaRed will benefit from a wide range of Splash's marketing expertise as Splash's CEO Robert Nistico did great things for Red Bull in North America and Kevin McClafferty served both as President and CEO of Marley Beverages, one of the fastest growing beverage start-ups in recent years.

"We are delighted to have partnered with the KonaRed team. Robert and I have known Shaun for several years and we have the highest level of respect for each other and each other's companies. In the early launch, KonaRed has positioned itself as a category leader in terms of product integrity, packaging, taste and functionality. I have no doubt that the KonaRed team will continue to provide Splash Beverage Group with a 'best in class' lineup," said Mr. McClafferty.

KonaRed joins TapouT, Bruce Lee Tea and Amazoo Acai as featured brands in the Splash Beverage Group's portfolio of non-alcoholic brands.
