NATURALLY SPLENDID ENTERPRISES LTD. (“Naturally Splendid” or “NSE”) (TSXV:NSP)(OTC:NSPDF)(FRANKFURT:50N) is pleased to announce that HempOmega(TM) client, Sipp Industries Inc. (“SIPP”), has signed a distribution agreement with Mahaska Bottling Company (“Mahaska”) to distribute Hemp infused IPA, Major Hemp HIPA, throughout the state of Iowa.
Sipp’s new Hemp infused IPA, and Major Hemp H-IPA, both utilize Naturally Splendid’s propriety microencapsulated hemp oil, HempOmega(TM), in the formula of these beers creating unique, competitive advantages. HempOmega(TM) fortified beer can now be purchased in over 7 states. Efforts continue to secure the necessary approvals for HempOmega(TM) infused beers in the states of Texas and California.
Sipp is currently in the process of fulfilling the initial order of Major Hemp HIPA, which will be distributed by Mahaska Bottling Company throughout Iowa’s largest cities including Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport, as well as popular college towns in Iowa City and Ames. Mahaska Bottling Company offers a full-array of services and distribution in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska, along with parts of Illinois, Missouri and South Dakota. Mahaska also offers proprietary brands, products and services in California, Texas and New York.
Ted Jorgensen, President of wholly-owned subsidiary Major Hemp, commented, “We are very excited to enter the Iowa market which is a state with a true passion for craft beer. Mahaska is an excellent partner to distribute Major Hemp HIPA in Iowa and we expect to ship out their initial order this week.”
Naturally Splendid CEO Douglas Mason states,” We are very pleased with the continued success Sipp has had with HempOmega(TM) infused Major Hemp HIPA. The launch of their new Hemp infused IPA , which also contains our proprietary HempOmega(TM) is another positive step forward as our innovative technology continues to be validated with additional market applications. We would like to congratulate Sipp and look forward to supporting them in their continued efforts to penetrate the US craft been market.”
Sipp has also announced it has signed a contract with Craft Brand Ambassadors, LLC (“CBA”) to become an official brand ambassador of Major Hemp HIPA.
