For Immediate Release

Waterloo, Ontario, January 31, 2019: SponsorsOne Inc. (CSE: SPO) (Frankfurt: 5SO), the company that makes small brands BIG by building large, engaged and authentic communities that buy and support the Brands they love, is pleased to announce it has entered into a Brand Development Agreement with Native State Foods ( ). Under the agreement, SponsorsOne will bring Native State Food’s story to life to connect and build a large community that will purchase their unique food product online. Using the SponsorCoin platform to manage the community of micro-influencers, the SponsorCoin digital currency will reward for engagement.

“Co-Founders of Native State Foods, Angela Palmieri and Claudio Ochoa, have introduced an amazing and natural food to North America and its called pinole,” said Guy Zajonc, President of SponsorsOne Media. “Never heard of it? Neither had I until I met Angela and Claudio. But if you check out the Native State Foods website, you will learn the story of a power food that fueled ancient Aztec warriors and today’s Tarahumara Indians that can run hundreds of miles at a time. I can’t wait to show the world this story.”

“Our journey began years ago in rural Latin America. Pinole is a powerful local breakfast staple that naturally delivers high-density nutrition and gives you sustained energy to power the day,” stated Angela Palmieri, Co-Founder, and CEO. “We founded Native State Foods because we saw an opportunity to bring consumers here in the US more nutritious choices like pinole that are centuries old, yet fit into today’s modern, busy lifestyle.”

Native State Foods is preparing to launch a new breakfast snacking line with additional ancient superfoods like maca, turmeric, and goji berries. While the company’s products are already on grocery shelves across the US, Native State Foods is looking to build a higher margin, direct to consumer marketplace by working with the SponsorsOne and the SponsorsOne Media team.
