Company Executive Vice President of Operations, Mr. Bryan Carson reports, “The Company has matured to the point where we are now scaling up, rather than starting up. We have progressed from a consumer-packaged goods company, to a vertically integrated operation capable of manufacturing a wide range of health-related products either under Company Brands, or for our Contract Manufacturer Clients.
Carson adds,” As our vertical integration strategy aligns, the timely completion of our extraction facility and granting of our Processor’s License (Pending Health Canada approval) will create entirely new opportunities for NSE within for the emerging cannabis-infused product sectors. Many of our Contract Manufacturer Clients are positing their organizations for the legalization of cannabis-infused food products as well and these strategic relationships with well known brands and NSE will be positioned to be a full-service contract manufacturer with the required certifications retail outlets will demand’.
Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. Douglas Mason states,” In 2018, NSE secured a previously announced a 5-year manufacturing contract estimated at $1,000,000 CDNannually for projected revenues of $5,000,000 CDN.,(See news release dated, June 11, 2018). Since securing this first significant Contract Manufacturing Client, NSE has been proactive in identifying numerous additional Contract Manufacturer Clients which has created the need to increase manufacturing capacity. Increasing manufacturing capacity and securing top-tier food manufacturing certifications such as Safe Quality Food Level 2 certifications is driving additional business to our facility.
Executing these initiatives has opened the door to a myriad of opportunity with leaders in the food service, retail, and grocery industries and we look forward to capitalizing on these opportunities.”
