ANNOUNCEMENT OF EXTENDED PARTNERSHIP
RAINFOREST DISTRIBUTION & TRICKLING SPRINGS CREAMERY
CHAMBERSBURG, PA. Trickling Springs Creamery (“Trickling Springs”) and Rainforest Distribution Corp (“Rainforest”) are proud to announce an expanded partnership to further strengthen the Trickling Springs Organic (“TSO”) and Trickling Springs FarmFriend (“TSFF”) brands throughout the East Coast.
Effective August 15, 2017, Rainforest will begin operating Trickling Springs’ existing direct distribution service throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Trickling Springs and Rainforest look forward to reaching out to each customer to answer any questions and to ensure a seamless transition.

Further Rainforest will leverage its full-service distribution model to drive brand growth emphasizing local, innovative and high-touch perishable items.
Will there be any changes in the cost of the products?
No! Your cost of all Trickling Springs products will remain the same. (Your current payment terms will also remain in place).
Will there be any changes in delivery frequency?
All customers will receive the same frequency of deliveries. In many cases, there will be an option for increased frequency. Over the next several weeks, a Rainforest representative will reach out to you to tailor a delivery schedule that best fits your needs.
Will I still have the same customer and sales support from Trickling Springs?
Yes. Trickling Springs’ existing sales team will remain in place to support both brands and our customers’ needs.
What if I have other questions about the August transition?
Feel free to reach out to your Trickling Springs Sales Representative or Customer Service Team member with any question in the meantime. In advance of August 15, 2017, Trickling Springs and Rainforest will reach out to each customer with detailed instructions for order placement and to address any other needs you may have.
