Naturally Splendid CEO, Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, "Naturally Splendid began with the idea that plant-based diets are good for people and the planet. Our initial products were hemp based, given hemp boasts such an impressive nutritional profile of protein and omegas. The acquisition of Prosnack Natural Foods afforded the opportunity to become a manufacturer of nutritious plant-based bars and bites. And more recently we entered a joint venture, Plasm Pharmaceutical, to pursue a Health Canada approved phase 2 clinical trial for the curcumin-based target drug CavaltinibTM, which incorporates a patented extraction technology. In essence, a plant-based medicine. And now, with our launch of NATERA Plant Based Foods, the Company is positioned to distribute delicious plant-based meals to a wide range of consumers in this rapidly growing category. Throughout these diverse opportunities, plant-based products have remained central to our strategy as they will moving forward."
