The Company continues to review operations at their food manufacturing facility in Pitt Meadows and are strategically optimizing operations, focusing on leveraging the experienced talent pool within Naturally Splendid. In this regards, the Company has accepted the resignation of Mr. Barry Dashner as Chief Operating Officer.
Additionally, Naturally Splendid has settled the outstanding court action with former CEO, Douglas Mason. The action was for a total of $90k and the Company settled on and completed a one time total payment of $45k, with Mason providing a full and final release to the Company.
Company CEO Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, “The Company has proactively pivoted to being a manufacturer of plant-based, nutritious products, thus providing the foundation for a growing business. This process has been on-going for the past year with VP Bryan Carson the driver behind building out the Prosnack operations. It is important to understand we have not abandoned hemp or hemp derivatives such as CBD (cannabidiol). In fact, in our case, the two business opportunities actually compliment one another. We are confident food companies will look to us to be their manufacturer of cannabis edible products once licensing is secured for our Pitt Meadows facilities. However, instead of waiting for the edibles market to go more mainstream, we continue to expand our bars and bites business which is focused on plant-based ingredients. One day in the not too distant future, these market opportunities will converge positioning the Company in a most enviable position.”
