In the interview, Shaun Roberts, Founder, CEO and President, details the attributes of the Hawaiian CoffeeBerry® coffee fruit from Kona, Hawaii, explaining the story behind the KonaRed products.  He also says that KonaRed's push to expand its distribution network is on track and is expected to double sales in 2014. Driving these sales upward are the successful efforts of its strategic partner, Splash Beverages, to continue to recruit major distributors and retail chains throughout the U.S. as customers of KonaRed.

"Our campaign of using in store product demonstrations, which hand out a free 2oz. taste sample in the major grocery stores, is a key to increasing sales," Mr. Roberts told Mike Elliott of CEOLIVE.TV.  "I'm confident in achieving our sales goals as once you try it, you will buy it."

KonaRed products are sold in select Kroger locations, Ralphs, Fred Meyer, Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods, Safeway, Walmart, 7-Eleven, and many other retail outlets throughout the U.S. and Canada. "We now have three products being displayed on store shelves, original, green tea, and coconut water. Three is a magic number in retailing and is giving us the profile we need to capture consumer interest," Mr. Roberts concluded.
