Sire Bioscience Inc. (SIRE) (CSE:SIRE, FRA:BR1B,OTCX:BLLXF), a Health Canada hemp license holder with a goal of becoming a vertically integrated CPG leader in the CBD marketplace, is pleased to announce the Company has commenced discussions, as well as entered into a non-binding Cannabidiol (“CBD”) Commercialization and Consulting Letter of Intent (“LOI”), dated September 24, 2019, with Fusion Nutrition Inc. (“FUSION”),  a nationally branded supplement manufacturer.

The 20 year old Canadian-based, leading supplement company has national distribution and currently hosts up to 9 brands, including PURPLE-K, the king of creatine. Fusion Nutrition has some of the fastest-growing supplements in Canada and numerous category leaders sold in Canada’s top five sports nutrition retailers. To add more depth to their lineup, Fusion is also currently ramping up the release of its protein powder called PROZILLA. You can learn more about Fusion Nutrition at fusionmuscle.com.

Ryan Herniman, Fusion President, comments, “Within the sports nutrition space a more obvious synergy has never presented itself. With our combined experience in the world of CPG’s we’ll not only be able to develop world-class offerings but we’ll be able to help a lot of people and that motivates us tremendously. It’s an exciting new time in sports nutrition and we’re thrilled to be working with Sire on this initiative.”

The sports nutrition market is vast – covering a wide range of categories such as protein powders, protein bars, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), pre-workout blends, nitric oxide boosters, and creatine supplements. Largely driven by the Millennial demographic, the market shows no signs of slowing down. According to Allied Market Research, the global sports nutrition market is expected to reach $44 billion by 2021.

Meanwhile, cannabis industry analyst, Brightfield Group, advises the hemp-CBD market alone could hit $22 billion by 2022. Brightfield Group also comments that CBD trials have been found to be particularly effective at treating conditions of pain, sleep disturbance, spasticity, and seizures, as well as decreasing one’s dependency on other drugs such as opioids.

Jeff Zanini, Sire CEO, comments, “The union of these two massive industries will create a business-related sonic boom. Sports nutrition combined with CBD is a winning formula. It’s also aligned with everything that Sire is all about – such as having an early-mover advantage to win the CPG race, staying on the fastest track to revenue and profits, and elevating the consciousness of humanity, all while sustainably increasing shareholder value.  This is a pure winner and we couldn’t be more excited.”

The non-binding LOI contemplates the branded and private label creation and supply of Sire’s House of Brands portfolio of CBD-infused CPG products.

Terms of the LOI include but are not limited to:

  • Scientific study and analysis of the CBD/sports nutrition industry to ensure best-in-class deliverable methods.
  • Regulatory analysis to ensure compliance with regulatory bodies in Canada, supporting fastest “go-to-market” strategy.
  • Exclusivity of arrangement between SIRE and FUSION.
  • Exchange of Branding, Licensing and Intellectual Property.

There is no guarantee the transaction proposed will be completed.  Sire will provide further disclosure by way of press release and updates as such additional information becomes available.

BevCanna Enterprises (CSE:BEV,OTCQQ:BVNNF,FWB:7BC) CEO Marcello Leone shared how the company is scaling up its products to forge partnerships and explore opportunities across Canada, the US and Western Europe. 

“Getting your standard processing license and being fully compliant at a federal level is critical in Canada, and we were successful in getting that done. Now we’re getting ready to launch our Keef line of beverages within the next 45 days,” Leone said. 

As a young company, Leone said BevCanna has only started, but it took a four-pronged approach to make sure that it is a revenue-generating company prepared for the opening of many jurisdictions for CBD-based products.

“We are blessed that we have a beautiful infrastructure of our own, a state-of-the-art bottling facility with a capacity of almost 200 million bottles per annum and a strong balance sheet of $55 million. We are in a strong position to scale and grow this company.”

BevCanna has received a Standard Processing License from Health Canada and is now fully authorized to begin production at its full-service, high-capacity beverage manufacturing facility. The company will begin production of its white-label products, number one US cannabis beverage brand Keef and its in-house beverages through licensed Canadian retailers, positioning the company to fully capitalize on the burgeoning Canadian cannabis-infused beverage sector.
