Stater Bros. is a key account for VitaminFIZZ and marks yet another milestone for the brand in accomplishing widespread acceptance," says V. Scott Vanis, Minerco's Chairman and CEO. "With our refreshing, enhanced and healthful sparkling waters in every Stater Bros. location, VitaminFIZZ has been successfully placed in virtually every targeted key account in Southern California.
