November 14, 2019 – Vancouver, BC: The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (FSE:YG3) is pleased to announce that pursuant to its previously announced distribution agreement with Melorganics it has shipped nearly 2,500 Urban Juve products to Greece this week, marking its first export of products to Europe. Further, Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve has agreed to expand the exclusive distribution territory granted to Melorganics to include Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia, in addition to Greece and Cyprus.
“We are impressed with the speed with which Melorganics was able to get all our products approved for sale in Greece,” says Yield Growth CEO Penny White. “We are excited to begin selling our Urban Juve products in pharmacies throughout Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia as we work with Melorganics to introduce hemp products in these countries.”
Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve has received compliance certificates registering 11 of its products with the European Union.
On November 10, 2019, Yield Growth subsidiary Urban Juve Provisions entered into a definitive agreement with 699598 Ontario Corp. O/A Melorganics Hellas “Melorganics” for exclusive distribution of the Urban Juve brand of hemp-powered skin care products in Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia for a 3-year term provided certain minimum annual sales are met. Pursuant to the agreement, Melorganics has agreed to place its first purchase order for these territories by December 31, 2019.
As proposed legislation across the European Union continues to bring cannabis closer to the mainstream, high-end cannabis products are gaining popularity. With a total population over 508 million, the EU represents massive market potential for Urban Juve products.
Jefferies estimates that the CBD beauty industry will reach US $25 billion within 10 years and that it could account for 10 – 15% of global skin care sales. Jefferies suggests, “the Global Beauty & Personal Care market neared $465 billion in 2017 and is ripe for disruption from Cannabis-based products.”
Melorganics plans to enter the European Market with a full line of CBD products and is establishing relationships with pharmacies throughout Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary for distribution of hemp products. The company is in the process of securing exclusive rights and strategic alliances with leading companies both in Greece and Canada that are focused on the development of unique health products and nutraceuticals with cannabis and botanical oils.
