In other news, the Company's recently hired sales department has onboarded 50 new accounts in the past forty days. This brings the approximate number of Canadian grocery stores carrying Boosh products to 445. It also announces it has completed its US packaging compliance requirements for export and sales in US and will be shipping to its US warehouse and ShopVejii.com US warehouse in early November. As previously reported, ShopVejii.com operates a digital marketplace for plant-based and sustainable-living products and provides delivery of these products throughout Canada and the US. Boosh is already available in Canada for home delivery through ShopVejii.com and will launch home delivery in US in mid-November. Separately, the Company has completed all of the documentation required for its US food distributors and has sent sample products to Thrive who have begun providing to their
key US clients.
"Since our IPO roughly four months ago, we've laid the foundation for four revenue streams; organic growth by increasing the number of stores selling Boosh products, E-commerce through ShopVejii.com, US expansion through Thrive Natural Sales, and acquisitions," States CEO Jim Pakulis. "Our two recently acquired businesses Vegan Canteen and Salt Springs Harvest have already blended very well into our portfolio. I anticipate Boosh to continually acquire well managed plant-based food companies that we believe have significant upside and compliment our expanding brand of Boosh products."
