Kate Farms Functional Whole Foods Gains National Distribution

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Kate Farms the creator of Komplete Ultimate Shakes  the world's first organic dairy-freegluten-free and soy-free ready-to-drink meal replacement shake  is excited to announce that the first Komplete flavor, Vanilla Bliss, will be present in all 622 of The Vitamin Shoppe locations nationwide as well as online starting yesterday, Sunday, August 18 th, 2013. The remaining two Komplete flavors from their flagship line including Cocoa Fudge and Jav'a Latte will be available for purchase at The Vitamin Shoppe and online starting Sunday, September 15 th, 2013.

As a former tennis professional and the cousin of world famous tennis legend Rod Laver, Richard Laver and his wife Michelle founded Kate Farms for the sole purpose of their daughter, Kate Laver. At the age of four, Kate was failing to "thrive" and was faced with numerous difficulties. The meal replacement beverage her doctors prescribed was overloaded with sugar and dairy for calorie enhancement. As a result, Kate had many complications, including bottle rot, sleep apnea and digestive problems. The Laver's then decided it was time to take matters into their own hands and started to develop their own hypoallergenic meal replacement shake in their very own kitchen. Together they blended 21 superfoods (including but not limited to acai, mangosteen, black currants, raspberries, green tea extract, etc.) with antioxidants, high plant based proteins and vitamin rich ingredients to fuel the body with the nutrition it needs and removed all the things that the body doesn't need like sugar and dairy. Within weeks Kate's condition improved greatly and she no longer needed breathing treatment for sleep apnea, her digestion problems were a thing of the past and her mouth was once again healthy.

"The Vitamin Shoppe is known for offering health conscious consumers a variety of high quality products and supplements and I'm thrilled that Kate Farms Komplete Ultimate Shakes will now be stocked on their shelves." says Richard Laver, CEO and Founder of Kate Farms. "When I was creating the Komplete formula I dreamed that it would end up in The Vitamin Shoppe and Super Supplements stores worldwide."

Kate Farms Komplete Ultimate Meal Replacement Shakes can also be found and are available for purchase in more than 30 Super Supplements locations as well as many other fine grocery stores and retailers all over the United States. Please visit for additional information and to find a local retailer.
