(CSE: SPR) (OTCQB: SRUTF) (FSE: 38G) (“Sproutly” or the “Company”) announced today the addition of a supply agreement with British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, the Company’s 5th provincial supply agreement to date, as well as changes to its Board of Directors.
The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Toronto Herbal Remedies (“THR”), has entered into a cannabis supply agreement with the province of British Columbia (the “Supply Agreement”) through the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, and completed an initial sale into the province. British Columbia is the 5th province in Canada to carry Sproutly’s CALIBER branded indoor-grown dried flower products (“CALIBER“), following Saskatchewan and Manitoba earlier this year.
“We are pleased to announce the addition of British Columbia as our newest partner to carry our CALIBER branded products,” said Dr. Sen, CEO & Director of Sproutly. “Consistent with our plans, our small-batch dried flower is only the beginning of our CALIBER brand portfolio. We are looking to leverage innovative developments as we focus on commercialization of our proprietary APP Technology via the production and sale of specialized ingredients and Cannabis 2.0 products formulated with these ingredients.”
APP Technology is a proprietary technology that produces all natural whole-plant BioNatural Oils (BNO) and water soluble Infuz2O.
