LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barfresh Food Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Barfresh”) (OTCQB: BRFH), a provider of frozen, ready-to-blend and ready-to-drink beverages, today announced that it has expanded its education program to an additional 473 school locations with the addition of Hillsborough County Public Schools District and Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) District. These 473 schools are spread out across two districts in Florida and form a collective student population of over 435,000 students. Barfresh product will initially be part of both the breakfast and dinner menu once a week at Hillsborough County Public Schools and will be part of the breakfast menu twice a week at Orange County Public Schools District.

Riccardo Delle Coste, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We entered the current school year in double the number of school locations and have continued that momentum throughout the year as illustrated with today’s expansion release. The response to Twist & Go has far exceeded our expectations and its growth in the education channel this year has us on track to achieve our highest quarterly revenue in company history in the fourth quarter 2021. This revenue milestone is of particular importance given the fourth quarter is historically a lower quarter for our Company based on seasonality. We look forward to announcing additional school locations next fiscal year that will continue to drive significant revenue growth for our Company.”

Jamila Adams, MS, RD, Senior Administrator of Menu & Nutrition at Orange County Public Schools, stated, “The Barfresh smoothies have been successfully taste tested in Orange County Public Schools. The students like the Strawberry Banana flavor the best. OCPS requires at least 80% of the students to approve of new products before they go on the menu.”
