Bravo Brands Inc, (Bravo) formerly Bravo! Foods International Corp., is engaged in the development, branding, marketing, distribution and selling nutritious, flavored milk products throughout the United States and United Kingdom. The Company’s products are available through co-packing agreements with aseptic milk processors and are sold under its brand names Slammers and Bravo!. It uses third-party production agreements (called co-packing arrangements) for the processing of flavored milk products and that milk products will be produced and distributed directly by those processors. Bravo has adopted a co-branding strategy and negotiated strategic license agreements with Masterfoods (Milky Way, Starburst, 3 Musketeers, Dove) General Mills (Trix, Cocoa Puffs) and Organic Valley (organic milk). The Company’s products are primarily distributed through Coca Cola Enterprises Inc. (CCE).
Bravo developed branded extended shelf life and aseptic, bacteria-free, long life flavored milk products. The extended shelf life (ESL) product was sold in 16-ounce, single-serve plastic bottles and had to be refrigerated. The shelf life of this product is 90 days. In addition, it developed a line of aseptic packaged milks that did not require refrigeration and had a shelf life of eight months. This product was packaged in an 11.2 ounce Tetra Pak Prisma sterile paper container. Bravo used Marvel trademarks for Super Heroes and Marvel Heroes for the design and marketing of its 16 ounce single serve milk with an extended shelf life. Both its ESL and aseptic product categories were produced at Jasper Products, LLC located in Joplin, Missouri. The majority of its products were shipped through traditional warehouses.
The Company has developed and marketed products, including Trix Slammers, Cocoa Puffs Slammers and eight-ounce organic white milk, all in aseptic plastic bottles. In February 2006, Bravo signed a five year licensing agreement with General Mills Marketing, Inc.
