SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Dreamerz Foods, Inc., the creator of Dreamerz, the first ever all-natural sleep beverage, today announced Gilbert Pritchard, Jr., former chief executive officer of Avalon Natural Products, as the newest member of the San Francisco-based company's Board of Directors. Pritchard brings more than 25 years of experience leading mass market companies in the personal care and natural food industries including nSpired Natural Foods, Barbara's Bakery, Inc, and Sunfield Foods, Inc., a division of Nestle. Pritchard's leadership abilities, knowledge of the personal care and wellness market and operational proficiency will greatly benefit Dreamerz as it continues to broaden distribution and introduce new products under the healthy sleep and wellness portfolio.

We are thrilled to have a well-respected and engaging member of the Bay Area business community join our board."

"My best ideas come after getting a good night sleep, so I especially appreciate the importance of Dreamerz to consumers, like myself, who are seeking more natural alternatives," said Pritchard. "I am thrilled to join the Dreamerz team and hopefully contribute to the future success of such a unique and important product and brand."
