Goya’s Tropical Fruit Beverages Offer New Way to Beat Heat!

- All Natural Fruit Drinks, Packed with 100% Vitamin C
- Prepared in the Dominican Republic from natural fruit pulps
- Ten Tantalizing Flavors Bring the Tropics Home

June 2, 2005 – Goya Foods gives consumers a taste of the Tropics with its new, Tropical Fruit Beverage line. These refreshing drinks are made with all natural fruit pulp, contain 100% vitamin C and are free of artificial ingredients. Lighter in taste than traditional nectars, Goya’s Tropical Fruit Drinks come in 10 exotic flavors including: Passion Fruit, Papaya, Guava, Mango, Barbados Cherry, Lemon, Passion Fruit/Papaya Blend, Passion Fruit/Pineapple Blend, Tamarind, and Guanabana.

"Goya feels the market is ready for this product line, which appeals to all consumers and meets our high standards for quality and authenticity." relates Goya Vice President of Marketing, Mr. Conrad Colon. Goya also hopes to introduce consumers to healthy, native fruits that they may not have yet experienced. "Our Barbados Cherry drink for example, has a very high concentration of vitamin C, a single 8 oz. serving contains 470% of the recommended daily dose," continued Mr. Colon.

Festive labels distinguish these 16 oz. bottles which are packed in cases of 12 to facilitate distribution. Goya’s Tropical Fruit Beverages will be launched nationally this month and are a natural compliment to its extensive beverage line. For more information on Goya’s Tropical Fruit Beverages log onto .
