Tanka's seventh year at Expo West the best yet

March 12, 2014

Tanka CEO Karlene Hunter at our booth at Expo West. Photos by Linda Crider, director of marketing and communications.

Our Tanka team's heads are still spinning after last week's very successful Natural Products Expo West 2014 in Anaheim, CA, with our retail partners Onnit Labs. We debuted our co-branded product, the Warrior Bar, at the Expo and it was received favorably.

Not only did we have the pleasure of premiering our Warrior Bar, but most of the attendees that visited our booth and the Onnit booth were already familiar with our other products. Onnit also had a beautiful tasting booth set up exclusively to sample out the Warrior Bar.

Pictured are our CEO Karlene Hunter with inside sales manager, Eugene Stover. He is chatting with a customer in the top left photo and is photographed with Lindy of Onnit in the bottom right.
