Naturally Splendid (TSXV:NSP) is pleased to announce that an additional Purchase Order of NATERA® branded products valued at approximately $100,000.00 CDN, has been received from their Australian distributor.
Naturally Splendid’s strategic alliance with our Australian distributor, a multi-divisional distribution company with eight wholly owned subsidiaries covering retail; food service; and practitioner markets, represents several thousand points of sales and is the foundation to launching multiple product lines in Australia.
The first shipment of NATERA® branded products cleared customs in Australia and arrived at our distributor’s warehouse in late 2017. The second shipment valued at approximately $140,000CDN, was shipped in a 40′ container for distribution throughout Australia. This most recent shipment is intended to expand the NATERA® consumer base and further penetrate the Australian market.
Naturally Splendid President Mr. Craig Goodwin states, “Our vertical integration strategy creates a unique position for the Company when measured against most other hemp companies. Since our first shipment to Australia, we have solidified our vertical integration to include our own hemp processing, expanded our bar manufacturing and test kitchen facility, applied for our Dealer License allowing for the extraction of CBD (cannabidiol) from hemp amongst many other activities, as well as have invested significant resources developing new products. Products developed by Naturally Splendid derived from industrial hemp for food, cosmetics, skincare, pet nutrition and care, will continue to find new markets such as Australia and we look forward to working with our distributors expanding the NATERA® brand there, thus creating an expanding opportunity to leverage our proprietary technologies like HempOmega™ and numerous other products that Naturally Splendid has developed as it relates to hemp.”
At the Australian Industrial Hemp Conference earlier this year, Mr. John Harvey, Managing Director AgriFutures Australia stated, “With the recent changes in the regulatory environment AgriFutures Australia has identified hemp as important emerging industry. Therefore, the Australian Industrial Hemp Conference comes at a particularly important time for the Australian industry to coordinate and to develop business models that will unlock the potential of this crop.”
Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. Douglas Mason states, “The position of AgriFutures Australia sends a positive signal in our opinion, for evolving hemp regulations including CBD (cannabidiol), derived in our case from hemp. Our previously announced Dealer License application as well as plans to build our own CBD extraction facility, further strengthens our opportunity in Australia and we look forward to expanding our product offerings there as regulations allow.”
