)-- Megafruit Ventures Continued Success Prompts Company Growth Again.
Los Angeles-based Megafruit Ventures, Inc., a health food company dedicated to bringing highly nutritious exotic Superfruits to the US, has appointed Breakout Sales and Marketing, formally known as Naturally TCL, to bring Superfruits to the South Western American public.
“Breakout Sales & Marketing (BSM) was the perfect choice for us. Both BSM and Megafruit Ventures are committed to bringing new innovative naturally healthy foods to the marketplace. Megafruit Ventures believes that the public in the South Western States want great tasting new foods that have many health benefits. BSM understands what health-conscious individuals want to see in their markets”, said Sean Kono, CEO, Megafruit Ventures.
BSM brings nearly 100 years of combined experience to the Megafruit Ventures team. BSM purchased Naturally TCL nearly 2 years ago. Tom & Cathi Lombardo at NTCL had been selling natural products as a broker for 30 years when Jimmy Searcy & Alan Urpsis became partners with Tom as Cathi retired from the industry. Jimmy Searcy once owned ‘Hi Profit Distributors’ that sold to Tree of Life in Southern Cal. He was also an owner of Lazy Acres Market in Santa Barbara California. Alan Urpsis, president of BSM has been in the industry for 30 years as well, owning and managing some of the best sales departments in the industry.
BSM will be working on bringing exotic gourmet Superfruits to the marketplace with Megafruit Ventures. One of the items Megafruit Ventures is bringing to the marketplace for the first time ever is the Mangosteen. Dr. Oz and Dan Buettner author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest wrote about the 5 most important Superfoods we must all begin to eat now. The Queen of Fruits, the Mangosteen was #3 on this list. Mangosteen (Tang YP) has more antioxidants than any other fruit, is rich in vitamins A and C and tastes delicious. Mangosteens contain xanthones (Watanapokasin) which are considered to be the most powerful of all antioxidants. Currently the benefits researched on Mangosteen are: improved cardiovascular health, natural antibiotic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging.
