									KonaRed™ and XOWii Announce Exclusive Agreement




Kona, Hawai'i and Newport Beach, California (October 6, 2009) - KonaRed and XOWii have
announced a multi-year agreement to market ready-to-drink beverages featuring KonaRed. The
coffee fruit ingredient, called KonaRed, represents the only US-grown product of its kind.




Under the terms of the agreement, XOWii will obtain exclusive rights to distribute KonaRed for
ready-to-drink beverage use in the United States in the network marketing channel and will be
responsible for manufacturing, sales and marketing. KonaRed will be responsible for
registration and supply. Financial terms were not disclosed.




Sourced from Kona Coffee, KonaRed offers more than 175 years of history. The Hawaiian
coffee trees thrive in a unique environment only available in Kona to create award-winning Kona
coffees and the super-antioxidant powers of KonaRed (the fruit surrounding each coffee bean).
It is a perfect situation - the rocky volcano slopes nurture the coffee cherry, the sun-drenched
mornings ripen the fruit, the misty afternoons refresh it and Kona Coffee farmers meticulously
handpick each cherry. Because of the rocky location and the fact that the coffee cherries don't
ripen all at the same time, farmers can't mechanically harvest the trees. Therefore, KonaRed
consumers are assured a ripe "red" fruit, and not a combination of immature and overripe
cherries. KonaRed offers pure antioxidants, energy and phenolic attributes - naturally.

The launch into ready-to-drink beverages offers a strong focal point to XOWii's product lines,
which will include a weight-loss product in January 2010. "There are significant unmet needs in
this market, which is why XOWii is entering the multi-level marketing industry," said James
Christiansen, executive vice president and co-founder of XOWii. "KonaRed is a unique
ingredient due to its extremely high antioxidant content and because it is virtually unknown in
the marketplace."




"XOWii was founded on the need for a new business model within the direct sales industry,"
explains Christiansen. "After examining the industry's top compensation plan, my partner,
Richard Kelly, and I crafted the most distributor-friendly plan available today. As word of our
new venture spread, numerous industry icons and leaders committed to joining our attractive
compensation model, our remarkable and category-creating product, our commitment to
distributors, and our company's youthful brand and energy."




"Today is an extraordinary day for KonaRed Coffee Fruit, its employees and suppliers, as we
enter into a long-term supply agreement with XOWii, LLC, an innovative networking marketing
company with tremendous industry experience and knowledge in the MLM channel," states
Shaun Roberts, founder and CEO of KonaRed. "In October 2009, XOWii's industry icons will
launch their first product, XOWii Energy, enriched with the antioxidant power of KonaRed
Coffee Fruit. KonaRed Coffee Fruit is looking forward to supplying XOWii, a company with the
potential for immediate explosive growth, for their initial product launch and with further products
slated for the beginning of 2010 and beyond."
