As quoted in the press release:
CR Brands announced today that it has won a total of six 2017 Hempcon Cup Awards notably including Best Candy, Best Edible, and the Best Connoisseur Edible for its work with Soul Sugar Kitchen brand. Based in California, Soul Sugar Kitchen has created a line of multiple award-winning gourmet cannabis edibles which includes peanut butter cups, savory mixes and jellies, all of which are available for purchase in California through the distribution network of River Collective, another CannaRoyalty investee.
“I am incredibly honored to be recognized at Hempcon again,” said Chef Marcus Lentz of Soul Sugar Kitchen. “Our team works tirelessly to ensure that our edibles are premium products that taste good, and more importantly, are consistent in terms of their milligram dosage. This market is growing at a rapid pace and Soul Sugar Kitchen is working rigorously to service the edibles category on a broader scale. From salty to sweet, we have something for everyone’s palate.”
“Chef Marcus is a master at his work and these Hempcon Cup Awards are reflective of that. Expect to see a more expansive and creative edible line from CR Brands under Marcus’ leadership. The awards also further demonstrate CannaRoyalty’s dedication to investing in the right people and developing premium, award-winning products that both positively contribute to CR Brands’ expansion strategy, and most importantly, deliver the best in what consumers are seeking,” added Dave Vautrin, CannaRoyalty’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
