GNC Awards Prestigious 2012 Vendor of the Year Award to BPI Sports!

February 26, 2013

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – BPI Sports, the fastest growing Sports Nutrition Company both domestic and abroad, proudly accepts the highly coveted "Vendor of the Year" Award presented by GNC. BPI continues to achieve milestone after milestone on its way to expanding its ever growing reach and exponential growth at a record setting pace. Parent company to Image Sports, EXT Sports, Pro-Nutra, and now the Jay Cutler Elite Series Brand, BPI continues its dominance in the sports nutrition sector.

Headquartered in South Florida with distribution to almost 20,000 stores nationwide and available in over 82 countries globally, BPI Sports has without a doubt become the leader in cutting edge performance based products. BPI’s products are all 100% drug free, banned substances free, and DMAA free. BPI has in less than five years experienced a growth pattern that has retailers lining up for their chance to get a piece of the pie.

“From the very beginning, we have focused our energies on developing premium formulas for the finest retailers and the smartest consumers,” said James Grage Vice President. “GNC is no different. They are the number one Nutritional Retail Giant in the world. And, they have afforded us the opportunity to do what we do best, while allowing them to do what they do best – SELL. This award is a huge reflection on everything we have strived to build from day one. It is the ultimate symbol of achievement with the ultimate partner. We are extremely proud our relationship with Joe Fortunato, Tom Dowd, Brian Cavanaugh, and the rest of the team at GNC and the accomplishments this partnership has allowed us to achieve. We can't imagine anything better and we want to thank them for everything."

GNC has more than 7,400 locations, of which more than 5,700 retail locations are in the United States (including 906 franchise and 2,075 Rite Aid franchise store-within-a-store locations) and franchise operations in 50 countries (including distribution centers where retail sales are made).

BPI Sports recognizes the importance of “new product development” as trends, research and customer needs continue to evolve. Other significant mainstream channels of distribution will be announced in the coming months as BPI targets new demographics and audiences in effort to increase its own platform of success. The company itself has now expanded its reach into magazines such as Men's Health, Men's Fitness, SHAPE, OK!, Star, and Latina.

With everything set for an incredible 2013, “We expect that our partnership with GNC will reach entirely new levels of sales and growth. No other retailer has its pulse on the vibe of the consumer and the understanding of how to communicate with them like the guys at GNC,” stated Grage.
