The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. (CSE:TNY; OTC:TNYBF) ("Tinley's" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company and its two Canadian licensed co-packers have now completed their submissions of the additional technical, marketing and training documentation requested by the Ontario Cannabis Store ("OCS") following the issuance by the OCS on December 16, 2022 of a formal notice to purchase ("the Notice"). The Notice included the Canadian versions of the Company's Cannabis Cup award-winning Tinley's '27 TM Coconut Cask, branded in Canada as Tinleys '27 TM Smooth Coconut, and its Tinley's Tonics TM La Paloma ready-to-drink sparkling ‘mocktail', to be produced in Canada as Tinleys Classics TM Mystic Dove TM .
Following responses to any requests for clarification that may arise from OCS review of the documentation submitted this week, purchase orders for the two products, to be included in the OCS spring release, are expected to be received in February 2022. Spring release products are anticipated to be shipped to the OCS warehouse in March, with launch of online purchase on the OCS website expected in early April, and retail launch in licensed cannabis retail outlets on or about April 12, 2022. The Company will work with its sales agents to support the brand and work to increase distribution throughout Winter and Spring 2022.
Next 2022 OCS Product Call
The Company, its co-packers and sales agents are preparing the required submissions to the OCS by January 21, 2022, for the balance of Tinley's Canadian Product line up; such submission is the first step in the new product call process for July 2022 release.
Potential Additional Provincial Listings
The Company also confirms that all necessary presentations and documentation for its seven Canadian SKU's have been submitted to the appropriate cannabis buyers at both the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch ("BCLDB"), and the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission ("AGLC"). These submissions are now under consideration by the respective buyers; further discussions regarding listing some or all of these SKUs in each province are expected in Q1 2022. The Company is considering plans and schedules for presentations for listings in additional provinces in collaboration with its sales agents and co-pack partners.
"Like many of our approximately 5,000 thirsty Canadian shareholders, I am looking forward to buying Tinley's infused Canadian beverages at one of the many licensed retail outlets close to home", said Ted Zittell, director and member, Office of the CEO. "Our Canadian and Long Beach operations teams, together with our co-packers and sales agents, have worked together to bring our brand into the structured buying cycle of the provincial boards. We are hopeful and excited that Canadians will find Tinley's products online at the OCS and on-shelf in retail outlets this spring, as we plan expanded distribution into additional provinces", he added.
