MOUNT PLEASANT, Utah, July 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green PolkaDot Box Incorporated (OTC:GPDB) "GPDB" announced today that it has been solicited and chosen by Amazon.com (Nasdaq:AMZN) to share its unique and expanding organic and non-GMO natural food offering and fulfillment expertise with Amazon.com's approximately 200 million customers.
The agreement between the companies is intended to take advantage of unique, strategic food offerings developed by the emerging online food club—greenpolkadotbox.com--including frozen/refrigerated goods and proprietary Living Produce®. GPDB sales are scheduled to commence on Amazon.com this week. "We are ecstatic that Amazon.com recognizes the enormous effort we've expended in developing unique, high value products and fulfillment capabilities to serve a growing audience of health-minded consumers," says GPDB CEO Rod Smith.
GPDB plans to put thousands of products "on sale," including bulk and unique bundled offerings that will lure Amazon.com's value-minded shoppers. "Our pricing on Amazon.com is going to be competitive," Smith, emphasizes. "We plan to meet and beat Amazon Prime® pricing on our listings, wherever possible, and be the best priced where Prime is not available, including free shipping." Smith is quick to clarify, however, that Club membership prices at greenpolkadotbox.com will always be the very best value in the nation, "guaranteed."
While confident that Amazon.com will become a profitable channel for GPDB distribution and sales, Smith sees a bigger picture. "We like the brand exposure to such a large consumer audience that this partnership will bring. But, speaking strategically, our frozen/refrigerated line of organic and non-GMO foods gives Amazon.com a major sales and distribution advantage with little competition. Moreover, GPDB will be the exclusive provider for Living Produce® on Amazon.com once our national distribution footprint is in place next year."
Green PolkaDot Box offers a unique, hard-to-get selection of organic, non-GMO frozen and refrigerated foods; it is one of very few online companies that has developed the capability to ship custom frozen orders including a variety of organic products with 1-2 day delivery. Living Produce®—not yet available in the United States—is a large variety of proprietary organic "living" produce that will be grown with patent pending farming technology and a patented organic fertilizer solution, available with next day delivery at affordable prices.
