PLAINVIEW, NY--(Marketwired - January 11, 2016) - Italian Food & Beverage Corp. (OTC PINK: IFBC) effected a Reverse Merger in 2015. As a result of this Reverse Merger, IFBC, through its direct and indirect subsidiaries, is in the business of manufacturing, exporting, importing, selling and distributing wine and various food products. The Company and its subsidiaries have established headquarters, offices and warehouses in several countries throughout the world, including Italy, Singapore, Austria, Hungary and the U.S. (http://mwne.ws/225Uufl)

Over the past six months, IFBC has entered into several Agreements which will allow it to significantly expand its food and beverage operations:

1) In early November, 2015, IFBC signed an Agreement with La Giubi srl, a company which has been chosen to represent the project "Path of Peace" for the Vatican's Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, to provide food trucks during the current Jubilee. As a partner in this project, IFBC will supply up to 100 food trucks, known as "Ape," to provide food and drink to the many pilgrims attending the Vatican's celebration during the period of December 8, 2015 through August 8th, 2016 (http://mwne.ws/1lO1CMV).

2) In early December, 2015, IFBC and The Foundation Campagna Amica, signed an Agreement to position as many as 1,036 food stands inside various markets throughout those cities in Italy where Campagna Amica has a presence. The potential for IFBC is to be situated in over 7,000 locations throughout Europe. (http://mwne.ws/225UdZS).

3) In mid-December, 2015, IFBC entered in an Agreement with Brand Out, Inc., one of Italy's premier booking companies, to provide IFBC with the food stands necessary to service the aforementioned Agreements. As a consequence of this new arrangement, IFBC will significantly increase its revenues by supplying food and beverages to all the food stands provided by Brand Out. (http://brandout.it/).

4) In late December 2015, IFBC finalized its agreement with Kilometro Zero Catering, Inc., (KZC), one of Italy's premier catering companies, which has been contracted to supply IFBC with quality, natural, made-from-scratch food to all of IFBC's food stands throughout Italy. KZCis renowned for its 100% natural foods and drinks,all of which are rich in nutrients and share a deliciously intense flavor that is achieved by using only the freshest products, picked from the Campagna Amica (see announcement 2) above) food stands that are supplied directly from local farmers.

As a result of this arrangement,IFBC is now considering an expansion of its business model to include supplying food to restaurants and cafes throughout Italy. (http://bit.ly/1PMvpz4)
