VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESS CABLE / Jul 8, 2022 / Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd.

All amounts are in Canadian dollars and are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.
During this reporting period, the uncertainty of Covid-19 negatively affected sales of existing product lines and hurt launches of new product lines. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) a global pandemic causing governments around the world, including the Canadian government, to enact extensive measures in an effort to limit the spread of the virus. . These measures, which include social distancing, travel restrictions, outright travel bans and closures of non-essential businesses, including restaurants, have created a challenging period for the Company.
The naturally splendid CFO, Mr. George Ragogna, stated: “We continue to implement our strategic plan focused on plant-based opportunities. The Company is developing the manufacturing capabilities and capabilities of our existing certified food manufacturing facility as our product mix shifts to more plant-based entrees and snacks from bars and bites. We have changed our product mix due in large part to the exclusive ten (10) year Canadian manufacturing and distribution agreement we entered into with Australia’s largest plant manufacturer, Flexitarian Foods. This agreement is renewable for another ten (10) years. Naturally Splendid has also obtained the license rights from Flexitarian Foods for the exclusive use of the PlanteinTM brand in Canada. With the PlanteinTM trademark now secured, we have completed all retail packaging and websites to support this brand. The company has recently attended several trade shows to promote the launch of the PlanteinTM retail line and has formed national distribution relationships with Canada’s two largest distributors, Sysco Canada and Gordon Food Services (GFS).”
Mr. Ragogna adds, “The company has completed the design and begun the reuse of our existing certified food manufacturing facility in Pitt Meadows, BC. All of the manufacturing equipment needed to produce our plant-based entrées has been ordered and many major components of the manufacturing line have already arrived at the Pitt Meadows facility. However, there have been delays in receiving some components needed to complete the full construction of the new production lines due to the ongoing logistical challenges that much of the manufacturing industry continues to experience. We will continue to receive our plant-based inventories from Flexitarian Foods while the manufacturing lines are still being set up in our own facilities. Once the new manufacturing lines are commissioned at our facilities, the Company will see an almost immediate return through reduced product costs and better inventory control, resulting in an anticipated increase in margins. We look forward to providing updates in a timely manner.” Naturally Splendid reported a net loss and comprehensive loss of $747,787 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to a net loss of $767,478 for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
