KonaRed's consumer product sales for the six months ended June 30, 2014 grew 71% to $782,141 versus consumer product sales of $458,816 in the comparative six month period ended June 30, 2013. For the six months ended June 30, 2014 total revenues increased 24% to $918,442 versus $738,532 in the comparative six month period ended June 30, 2013.

"These results compare very favorably to total consumer product sales of $606,307 for full year fiscal 2013," said KonaRed's CEO Shaun Roberts.

"We've been working hard at our many sales initiatives and these are starting to yield positive results. Momentum is heading in the right direction and we continue to push to move growth along faster. Based on the fact that in six months we've already exceeded our consumer product sales for full year 2013, I have little doubt that we'll double our sales in 2014 versus 2013 and expect we'll exceed that number," Mr. Roberts said.
