Since inception, all of the Company’s consumer product activities have been in the development and commercialization of all-natural, plant-based formulas. This began with the 2017 acquisition of a large plant-based formula library that includes skin care, personal care products, therapeutic products, beverages, edibles, topical wellness products, cleaning products, and a hand sanitizer – all developed under the guidelines of traditional Ayurvedic principles. The Company has also launched cannabis products through its Wright & Well brand in Oregon and has been working to develop the Jack & Jane line of cannabis products for Canada as well as medicinal mushroom products via its subsidiary, NeonMind Biosciences Inc. Continuing this momentum, the Company is committed to expanding its plant-based product portfolio across existing and new product categories and will continue to commercialize its extensive plant-based library of products.
“Herbal formulations based on traditional systems like Ayurveda have seen rapid growth in the past few years. We are committed to using the highest-quality, natural, plant-based ingredients in all of our products,” said CEO Penny White. “The name Better Plant Sciences is highly aligned with our mission, and positions us to capitalize on the growth in consumer demand for plant-based alternatives across all categories. We want to make it easy for consumers to make better choices for their health by making better products and holding ourselves to the highest standard to be a better company.”
The Company has put significant resources into fostering the growth of its direct-to-consumer business to drive sales, including the recent transfer of its Urban Juve e-commerce site onto Shopify as well as ensuring that products are also available on Amazon.ca. Creating product listings for U.S.-based consumers on Amazon.com is the next step in the Company’s direct-to-consumer sales focus.
“We have made the decision to focus solely on driving sales within Canada and the U.S. for the foreseeable future, as the COVID-19 pandemic has made those distribution channels a more reliable option. COVID-19 has also changed the outlook for retail channels worldwide and our strategy reflects this,” added White.
The Company has also been highly focused on developing the scalability of its operations while ensuring they remain true to its natural wellness and sustainability values. The company has stability tested more than 50 product formulations to ensure a 2-year shelf life for its products using plant-based preservatives. Cost-effective and environmentally friendly packaging solutions have also been sourced by the company.
“We strive to ensure our corporate practices are good to our people, customers, shareholders, employees, and our planet. Plant-based products made with high-quality natural and sustainable components, formulated to help our customers achieve optimal wellness is a crucial aspect of our business,” said White. “For our shareholders, we have ensured that we remain dedicated to staying on top of emerging trends and societal changes in order to stay relevant and set up our products for success. For employees, we offer a flexible, creative workplace, enabling remote work options that enable a healthy work-life balance.”
The new name and new symbol are intended to capture everything the Company has been developing thus far and what it plans to achieve moving forward: to make plant-based products and support wellness for a better life.
