Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 30, 2005 -- Athena Marketing International LLC (AMI), a Seattle-based global marketing and business development firm specializing in the food and beverage industry, announced the addition of two new clients to its growing client base. AMI will represent Oral Fixation Mints and Palapa Azul exclusively, providing both companies with export management services and marketing their products in Western Europe, Asia, Latin America, Canada, and elsewhere around the globe.

Oral Fixation manufactures premium quality, uniquely flavored gourmet mints packaged in distinctive metal tins. The hugely popular mints, which have been spotted in the hands of Hollywood celebrities including Julia Roberts and Britney Spears, were originally sold as specialty items in fashion boutiques and upscale hotels. With growing demand for their product, the company’s founders began searching for an international distributor and decided to team with AMI. “We were immediately impressed by [AMI president] Peter Guyer’s professionalism, and by AMI’s client list and its collective international distribution experience,” says Oral Fixation president Henry Rich.

Palapa Azul, a Los Angeles-based company that produces gourmet authentic Mexican-style frozen desserts, has also seen growing demand for its products overseas, particularly in Canada. Palapa Azul’s all-natural frozen fruit bars, sorbets, and ice creams are already available on both coasts and in the mid-west. Its partnership with AMI will bring these delicious and healthful products to new markets around the globe. “AMI’s extensive background and experience in large consumer products marketing attracted our interest,” says Palapa Azul co-founder, Michel Algazi. “We are happy to be working with AMI and feel it will be a good fit for our company.”    

“AMI is proud to represent these two innovative companies,” says AMI president Peter Guyer. “The outstanding leaders at Oral Fixation and Palapa Azul have the passion, commitment, and qualifications necessary to succeed in the international marketplace. We see in both Oral Fixation and Palapa Azul the potential to be global brands. These are exactly the types of visionary companies AMI seeks to represent.”
