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 andproprietary Living Produce(R). 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.
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(R) 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(R)-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.
