BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barfresh Food Group, Inc. (OTCQB:BRFH), a manufacturer of frozen, ready-to-blend beverages, today announced that it has signed a supply agreement with Pasco County School District in Florida to supply Barfresh frozen beverages at 30 of their middle and high school cafeterias, representing a student body of approximately 40,000.  Pasco County is located immediately north of greater Tampa, Florida.  Pursuant to the agreement, Barfresh branded beverages will be part of each school’s daily breakfast program and be offered throughout the remainder of the day on an a la carte basis whether that be for lunch or during break.  The Company anticipates serving more than 500,000 units in the coming 180-day 2017/2018 school year, which assumes only modest student acceptance rates.

Riccardo Delle Coste, the Company's CEO stated, "We are extremely excited about securing our first customer just weeks after launching our new product at the School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference in July.  Our agreement with Pasco County School District is just the first of many opportunities that we are currently negotiating around the Country.  School administrators continue to migrate toward healthier options for their students, led in large part by the USDA’s efforts to increase the availability to fruits, vegetables and whole grains while curtailing sodium on school menus.  Additionally, we are looking forward to the branding opportunity this presents with a very influential consumer demographic that are notoriously difficult to reach, which we expect to assist in our broader strategies to extend the Barfresh brand.”
