WheyUP, the Original Protein Drink with Energy, continued its aggressive global distribution campaign by signing a deal with Importive SA. Under the arrangement, Importive will distribute WheyUP in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Santo Domingo-based Importive is a wholesale distributor and retailer of fitness nutritional products, organic foods and fitness accessories to independent, chain supermarkets, fitness stores, drugstore and department stores in the Dominican Republic.

"Part of our distribution strategy is to sell WheyUP around the world, so we're excited to be partnering with Importive," said WheyUP's inventor and co-founder Erik Rothchild. "Our goal is make WheyUP a global brand of sports beverage, and this is another step in that direction. We're confident consumers in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico will love WheyUP once they taste it and experience its healthful benefits."

"With 20 grams of protein, zero fat and only 1 gram of carbs, WheyUP is the perfect drink for people on carb-conscience diets," Rothchild said. "It's a great way to add protein to your diet and energy to your day."
