There was a time when there were so many brands, types, and flavors of Sparkling Beverages that it was almost impossible to get retail exposure and most products, many excellent, went by the way side. Shrinking business opportunities put many of them out of business.
Today the beverage market offers the consumer two types of sparkling soft drinks: “Sugar Saturated” and “Sugar Free” and most if not all are being made with very harmful cancer causing sweeteners namely Aspartame and Nutra Sweet. “All Natural Flavors” was introduced with no comparable competition; the only beverage consumers can purchase sweetened 100% with “Stevia”. Doors are opening quickly as we move far ahead of any other “Sugar Free” soft drink sold today no matter who the manufacturer is.
We created “All Natural Flavors” to help battle two of America’s biggest challenges, “Child Obesity”, and the millions of both adults and children suffering with and dying from “Diabetes”. Our goal is to offer “GOOD FOR YOU, BETTER FOR YOU” beverage and food products that are safer and healthier alternatives to the main stream products available.
