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.

Pritchard is a well-respected leader within the personal care industry and known for his ability to nurture and grow small, unique brands into multi- million dollar product lines such as Avalon Organics and Alba Botanica. During his tenure as CEO of Avalon, Pritchard increased sales by more than 80 percent through strategic and focused brand development and operational effectiveness. Avalon was sold in late 2006 by North Castle Partners, a leading private equity firm, to Hain Celestial for $120 million.

"Throughout his career, Gil has proven his strength in these areas. We are thrilled to have him join the board and look forward to leveraging his expertise to grow the Dreamerz brand."

Amanda Steele, CEO and founder of Dreamerz, explains "As a young company building awareness and momentum, Dreamerz looks to industry leaders like Gil to provide insight and understanding of the dynamic and fast growing market of health and wellness. 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."
