VANCOUVER, BC, 6 September 2022 – The Gummy Project (“GUMY” or the “Company”) (CSE: GUMY - FSE: 0OS - OTCQB: GUMYF) is pleased to announce that a second production run has commenced for the Peachy Bees and Watermelon Sharks in preparation for a strategic expansion into the US market.
“Our accelerated US expansion was created by high interest and demand after the Company’s exposure at the Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago earlier this year where we were selected as one of the most innovative new products,” said Charlie Lamb, President & CEO of GUMY. “Following the tremendous success we’ve had in Canada so far, we feel the company is ready to expand into the US market and we have the utmost confidence in our products, our team and our mandate to support endangered keystone species. Our entry into the lucrative US market is the right strategy at the right time, with a focus on US luxury hotels, supermarket chains and major airlines.”
The second run of Peachy Bees and Watermelon Sharks is expected to be completed and ready for distribution into the United States on October 15, 2022.
The Company is also pleased to announce that its gummies will now be packaged in fully- recyclable packaging.
“The shift to fully recyclable packaging is a key sustainability initiative that we’ve been planning for some time,” said Anthony Gindin, Chief Marketing Office of the Company. “We want to be at the forefront of sustainability in the confectionary industry and this is just another step in the Company’s mission toward a more sustainable future.”
