Stakool, Inc. Will Change Its Name to Fresh Promise Foods to Better Align With the Company's Vision, Mission and Values and Its Commitment to the Development of Leading Edge Brands and Production Processes for Fresher, Healthier Foods
ATLANTA, Oct. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stakool, Inc. (OTCQB:STKOD), a developer, processor and marketer of healthy, better-for-you food products, announced that it has recently approved a name change from Stakool, Inc. to Fresh Promise Foods, to better align with the Company's vision, mission and values and its commitment to the development of leading edge brands and production processes for fresher, healthier foods. A category which is growing at three times the general food market and is expected to reach $1 trillion globally by 2017. The company will be filing a 14C and the name change should be effective upon its acceptance. The ticker symbol is still to be determined.
"Like everything the team and I have done since taking the reins in May, we took a very disciplined approach in developing a new company name that we believe is truly reflective of what our company promises to be to all of our stakeholders. The new name sets a clear path and promise for our Company's future positioning and direction," said Kevin Quirk, Chief Executive Officer.
"Fresh Promise Foods is more than just a company name change; it really is a true promise - or covenant - that we are making to our four key constituents: customers, consumers, employees and investors," continued Quirk. "And key to this "covenant" is our commitment to what we call our "YOUtrition Promise" -- our promise to provide the freshest and best foods possible, supported by best-in-class leadership and innovation. We understand that the "YOU" (consumers, shoppers, retailers and opinion leaders) are very informed and educated about what they feed themselves and their families. Our plan is to deliver healthy food options that deliver on that promise and are different, and honestly, better than what is in the marketplace today," concluded Quirk.
The Company continues to move ahead with recently announced acquisition of high-pressure processor and development of its new Consumer Product Group.
High Pressure Processing (HPP) has shown to reduce bacteria such as Listeria, E.coli, and Salmonella in packaged refrigerated products as diverse as ready-to-eat meats and raw ground beef and poultry; fresh fruits, juices, and smoothies; soups, wet salads, and sauces; and seafood and shellfish.
