At USG Distribution, our mission is bringing healthy products to U.S. service members and their families around the globe. We work towards this mission while employing active military, reservists, spouses of those actively serving, wounded warriors, and veterans.
Founded in 2017 by a U.S. Marine Special Operations Veteran Commander, USG Distribution quickly put boots on the ground to set up an effective logistics operation, providing goods to military installations worldwide. Originally, our focus centered on tactical products and support. However, we realized there was an opportunity to provide natural, organic and better-for-you products on base, as there was an under-served demand. In response, we leveraged our networks and delivered our first brand, Guayaki's Yerba Mate, as a healthy alternative for the Navy Seals. From this initial experience, we quickly became category captains for the natural, organic and better-for-you products for the military, while continuing to add partners to our portfolio.
We are a team of unconventional individuals, active, retired, civilian personnel, who chose to dedicate ourselves in continued service to those who serve and their support networks. USG Distribution singularly focuses on delivering healthy products to U.S. service members and their families. We believe that our greatest contribution to service members and their families comes through building healthy bodies and minds. We leverage our relationships with key military buyers and utilize our distribution network to quickly and efficiently move healthy products across the globe from warehouse to store shelf.
