Hat Trick Beverages has secured a contract with a Chinese bottler to begin production for the US market.

The new relationship with Henan Three-swordsmen Milk Company Ltd, is expected to provide "significant" cost reductions for producing Hat Trick's line of cold beverages, initially up to 35%.

"We are receiving numerous serious enquiries regarding business development in the Chinese market," said Sender Vaiser president of Hat Trick. "Our corporate advisor is continuing to develop these opportunities on our behalf, and they have proved instrumental in opening the doors to a number of potential strategic partners, suppliers and distributors to quickly establish our presence in this huge marketplace."

Hat Trick expects to receive initial orders and to initiate production within the next seven to ten days.

The advisor will be visiting China in mid-July to continue negotiations with Henan Three-swordsmen Milk Company, as well as following up on new opportunities that have recently been developed.

Earlier this month Hat Trick Beverages added a new "mid size" distributor for the Detroit and greater Michigan area. Hat Trick will be shipping both Road Kill and Pumped Fitness to the new distributor by the end of the month. The distributor has also agreed to add both the SuperBuzz beverage and the BevBall to its distribution line as soon as the lines are ready to ship.
