Revolymer® Removable Chewing Gum Gains Multi-Store Distribution
CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Revolymer®, the technology development company and pioneer creator of Rev7(TM) Gum, is pleased to announce that it has gained additional day-to-day retail distribution in over 450 retail chains in the U.S., with in excess of 4,000 stores now stocking Rev7(TM)( ) removable, degradable chewing gum .
The latest convenience chain to stock the gum is QuikTrip (http://www.quiktrip.com/), a $9 billion company with over 600 stores in ten states- one of the highest volume convenience stores in the U.S. Beginning in March, East Coast based Fasmart Shore Stop (over 200 locations) and California based Unified Stores (150 locations), will also stock the product.
“We are delighted that QuikTrip, Fasmart and Unified have joined our growing list of retail chains that have the product in their planogram.” said Chris Tamillo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “To put the positive environmental impact of Rev7(TM) into context, the disposal of one pack of conventional chewing gum has the same environmental impact as one plastic bag- which, in the U.S. alone, equates to over 20 billion plastic bags of pollution from gum every year. Rev7(TM) gum offers a solution to this issue with its unique degradability.”
Tamillo continued, “Additionally, the real success of the product, which is confirmed by consumer feedback, is that Rev7(TM) gum meets two as yet unmet needs in the market- gum that has both long lasting flavor and can be chewed longer, without going hard like other gums.”
“Revolymer® is going from strength to strength, rapidly expanding in the U.S., and we will continue looking to introduce the product to Europe in 2012,” said Roger Pettman, Chairman and CEO of Revolymer®. “We recently received the final approval to market Rev7(TM) in Europe, making it the first new gumbase ingredient for over 30 years.”
Rev7(TM) Gum is the world’s first and only removable and degradable chewing gum uniquely formulated to discourage waste. Its proven capabilities to disintegrate into a fine powder using mild water and agitation motivate social responsibility and heighten environmental responsible among consumers. Rev7(TM) has incredible long-lasting flavor and provides an exceptional chew that does not get hard or stiff for the duration of the chewing experience.
