VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – March 9, 2015 – OrganoGold, the global gourmet coffee company that caters to consumers’ active lifestyles, today announced that it has opened operations in Turkey. Paul Jarvis, Regional Vice President of Europe, CIS and Africa, will manage the Company’s activities in the country.

“The opening of Turkey is a significant operational achievement for Organo Gold”, said Bernardo Chua, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Organo Gold. “In line with our Global Footprint Initiative, Turkey unites the Company’s Asian, European and African operations and allows us to better serve our Distributors and Customers across this diverse and dynamic region.”

Co-Founder and Global Master Distributor Shane Morand added, “Turkey’s geographical importance, booming economy and young demographic complements Organo Gold’s mission, product lines and opportunity.”

It is highly gratifying for Organo Gold to be opening in a country with such a significant coffee history. The world’s first ever coffee house was opened in Turkey in the 15th Century. Since then, Turkey’s appetite for coffee has not abated. But now, in contemporary Turkey, a love of healthy products is also on the rise.

The Organo Gold product line in Turkey will include: Gourmet Black Coffee, Gourmet Mocha, Gourmet Latte, Gourmet Hot Chocolate, King of Coffee, Espresso UNO, Espresso DUE and Espresso TRE.
