Mr. Averill will be based in Boston and will report directly to Mr. Ilan Sobel, the CEO.

Nathaniel Averill has over 25 years of experience in biotech pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Nathaniel successfully sold Healthy Pharms Inc., to 4Front Advisors (a multi-state cannabis company) in 2016.

Mr. Averill will partner with Dr. Hagay (the CTO) and the key executives at Sugart Israel (BHSC's local manufacturing partner) in the set up and development of new 20 Tons per annum manufacturing facility which will produce VINIA® according to required US GMP specifications by early Q3, 2021. Mr. Averill will lead the local QA team in ensuring that BHSC and its manufacturing partners continue to uphold the highest levels of Quality Assurance across the industry and will lead the Supply Chain side of the business to maximize efficiencies and economies of scale.

In Boston, Mr. Averill will also be responsible for setting up a facility for BHSC to provide a North American showcase of our unique BioFarming capabilities. After gaining all appropriate local state licenses, he will be responsible for the conversion of this facility to a fully operating cannabinoid producing facility in 2022 serving the Massachusetts state market.

"It is a unique privilege to welcome Nathaniel to our team. It is a strong vote of confidence in BHSC's technology and prospects when an executive of such caliber joins the team," said Ilan Sobel, adding, "his wealth of experience in the most demanding industries in terms of capacity and quality will help us execute on our growth strategy and achieve our core values of customer satisfaction and quality.

The timing of Nathaniel's arrival at BHSC could not be better as we see demand growing for our products in both B2B and B2C channels."
