“The infusion of capital by VPA and others will allow us to expand down the East Coast and through Virginia where we're establishing a strong presence throughout ShopRite, Stop & Shop and Giant Supermarkets.” 

Currently, trimino is available in supermarkets, convenience stores, drug, fitness, and other retailers, including TOPS, Price Chopper, and 7-Eleven stores in Texas, Florida and Chicago.

The company claims that trimino protein-infused water “Beats Water, Everyday”, and contains 7g of whey protein, B-complex vitamins, zero sugar, zero carbs, and only 28 calories. The protein-infused water is available in four flavours.

The company also plans to start regional distribution in Sam's Clubs, Winn Dixie (Florida), Walgreen's (Miami), and Kroger (Texas) in anticipation of strong consumer demand.

Given the current climate, how long do you anticipate it will take for the global economy to recover post COVID-19?
