HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- Dewmar International BMC, Inc. (OTCQB: DEWM) (OTCBB: DEWM) proudly announces that it has successfully planned a three country business trade mission tour to the islands of Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Haiti to seek new distribution partners for its premium relaxation beverage, Lean Slow Motion Potion. This three country Caribbean Business Development Mission is in conjunction with the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) and the Small Business Administration (SBA). It will take place the entire first week of March 2013.
The primary intent and purpose of this business mission is to expand our beverage distribution exports into the Caribbean market. Dr. Marco Moran, CEO and Founder of Dewmar International BMC, Inc., states, "We have participated in a previous trade mission with officials of the state of Mississippi and were pleased with the results." He continues, "We expect an even greater response from potentially new distribution partners in the Caribbean that will lead to revenue increases for not only this but future quarters based upon preliminary reports from International Trade Consultants who recently polled distributors in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and even to my surprise, Haiti."
Dewmar International BMC, Inc. aims to triple its previous year's annual gross sales revenue, at minimum, by investing much sweat equity into visiting a number of countries during 2013 seeking major international expansion. The advantages for participants who work with the MDA are many. They will provide Dewmar International with pre-mission market research to assess its business' potential in all markets. They provide an all-inclusive mission coordination schedule for all supplier/buyer meetings as well as organize the venue and meeting amenities. Most importantly, both the MDA and SBA provide significant financial and administrative support for all qualified businesses that significantly reduce the total costs of each trip. This is all topped off with interpretation services, if necessary, all free of charge.
"Marco Moran has been one of our more aggressive corporate executives taking full advantage of our many trade mission programs to expand the Lean Slow Motion Potion brand worldwide," says John Mark Skinner, International Marketing Assistant for MDA. "We are helpful in customizing the itinerary and logistical support for each country visit," he adds. The U.S. exports to the Caribbean have steadily grown over the past few years. There is a Free Trade Agreement between the U.S. and the Dominican Republic which proves as a convenient geographic market. As Haiti continues to rebuild from its devastating earthquake of years past, it pledges to receive more American made food and beverage products which have higher regulatory manufacturing and processing standards.
