“It was our goal to create an easy-to-use website, populated with quickly found, pertinent content that will educate visitors on our products, as well as help change the way America feels about protein,” said David Jenkins, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Designer Whey, “We recognize the need for a site customized to cater to the large growing market of consumers that do most of their product research and purchasing online.”

Winner of five gold medals for taste by the American Tasting Institute, Designer Whey recently entered into the highly competitive drinks business with the release of its Protein Blitz™ and Lite & Lean products. Each flavored Protein Blitz drink delivers better power, better stamina and better recovery in every bottle. In addition, the Protein Blitz product label contains the web address for a dedicated website where a custom gaining and dieting program is found. Consumers can go to http://www.designerwhey.com/diet.htm to learn about proper diet, track their calories and set up a personalized shopping plan. Lite & Lean also comes in a great tasting powder form.
“The new DesignerWhey.com profiles a stronger brand positioning, redesigned product packaging and repositioned consumer market,” added Jenkins.
