VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (“Naturally Splendid”) (FRANKFURT:50N) (TSX-V:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) CEO Mr. Dave Eto is pleased to provide the following corporate update.
Senior Management and selected Advisory Board Members have been diligently preparing a Strategic Business Plan to capitalize on the multiple opportunities in front of Naturally Splendid. The Strategic Business Plan focuses on a number of key opportunities including: export; existing retail product lines and product line extensions; capitalizing on our technologies including HempOmega™ and CBD; maximizing our opportunities at our POS Bio-Processing Centre; as well as developing new revenue streams through the packaging line from Eat Real Snack Foods, a transaction that we are in the final process of closing.
Mr. Eto reports, “The Company will be redeploying its internal expertise to focus on these key strategic areas. I will be reaching out to my existing network and leveraging those relationships to enhance current business as well as to create new business opportunities for the Company – there will be an unwavering effort to execute our revised Strategic Business Plan. We will focus on our products and technologies and apply the necessary resources in a pragmatic and creative manner. I believe that innovation is the differentiator that will drive the growth and stakeholder interest of Naturally Splendid. In my career, I have applied the following three principals; be the first, be different and be the best. Together with a renewed sense of mission and corporate values our strategic plan has evolved and will be successfully completed”.
Mr. Eto adds, “In addition to the strategic business plan, the Company completed a significant capital raise of over $4,000,000 CDN in Q3 of this year. These funds have cleared any outstanding debt or loans the company incurred and will provide the company sufficient capital to execute its strategic plan moving forward. Aside from the lower than anticipated Q3 results, the Company is in a position of strength with several tangible opportunities in sight for 2017 and the future. Naturally Splendid also continues to work with our local hemp seed processor to improve yield recovery and output issues. They have committed to investing in additional equipment to match Naturally Splendid’s increasing sales demand and we are confident these improvements will satisfy our needs.”
At present, Naturally Splendid is continuing to work closely with a potential distributor representative based in SE Asia. This company is beginning some market development in the hemp products sector for some of Naturally Splendid’s product lines. The distributor at this time is as well forging ahead with the registration issues within the country.
Mr. Eto has spent over 30 years in the food processing industry and most recently served as Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the BC Dairy Association where he was responsible for the overall management of the BC Dairy Association, including communicating with hundreds of farmers, working with various governmental departments as well as developing many of the marketing initiatives launched during his term. Previously, Dave held a senior corporate position with Premium Brands Holdings, which is a company listed on the TSX and is a Canada-based producer, marketer and distributor of specialty food products.
Mr. Eto has held the position of President and Chair of the BC Food Processors’ Association for the past five years where he has developed many contacts within the government, academia and the food processing industry. He has significant experience in operational, sales marketing and manufacturing in a variety of foods including dairy, bakery and ready to eat products.
