The proceeds of the Offering will be directed primarily towards the Company’s 100% owned Prosnack Safe Quality Food Level 2 (SQF2) Certified food manufacturing facility. Funds will be used to adapt standard operating procedures (SOPs) taking into consideration challenges presented by the pandemic, pay outstanding management fees of $125,000 and for general working capital purposes to support the food supply chain by manufacturing safe, nutritious, non-perishable bars and bites.
This funding will enable the Company to acquire additional ingredients, as well as cleaning and safety supplies necessary during these times. While securing these funds, the Company is concurrently reviewing and applying to applicable support programs being established by federal and provincial governments.
Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, “We find ourselves in one of the most challenging times most of us have ever witnessed and hopefully will ever go through. The ongoing pandemic has altered our day to day lives considerably and this includes the food supply chain. We remain committed to producing nutritious food in our SQF2 certified facility and doing our part to support the food supply chain. In this regard, we have been proactive in developing additional SOPs for the safety of our employees, the facility, as well as consumers. While provincial and federal government programs continue to be rolled out supporting essential services such as food processors like ourselves, these programs take time to be initiated and made operational. Naturally Splendid has submitted information to several of these programs, continues to monitor these evolving opportunities closely and will include these programs in our strategic plans where applicable. We would like to thank all essential workers for their dedication and encourage everyone to follow guidelines established by our health authorities”.
