Statement from James D. White, Chairman, President, and CEO of Jamba Juice On the Obama Administration's Development of MyPlate

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Jun 08, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- James D. White, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ: JMBA), released the following statement today in response to the Obama Administration's recent announcement to promote and simplify the recommended daily intake of fruits and vegetables:

"We applaud the leadership of First Lady Michelle Obama, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture in their continued efforts to promote a healthier America. In a country wrestling with childhood obesity, the decision to replace the age-old food pyramid with "MyPlate" is another step in the right direction towards making eating healthier easier. Importantly, it helps simplify and clarify the important role fruits and vegetable play in maintaining a balanced, healthy diet. Jamba Juice has been on a mission for more than 20 years to inspire and simplify healthy living by offering convenient, better-for-you beverage and food options. We support the Obama Administration's action and remain committed to doing our part to help create a healthier America."
