Back in July 2021, Flora Growth (NASDAQ: FLGC), through its food and beverage division, Kasa Wholefoods Company S.A.S. (“Kasa”), inked a sales agreement with Importaciones y Asesorias Tropi S.A.S. (“Tropi”), the largest food and beverage distributor in Colombia. The agreement was intended to last up to one year, with Flora projecting revenue generation of up to US$10 million over that period (https://cnw.fm/Rvlz7).
In August 2021, Kasa announced that it had completed the first purchase order in line with the agreement. The purchase order, valued at approximately US$1.1 million, marked a key milestone for Flora and also demonstrated the company’s ability to follow through with its commitments (https://cnw.fm/3WPVg). While making the announcement, Jason Warnock, the Chief Revenue Officer (“C.R.O.”) of Flora, noted:
“We believe this initial sale demonstrates Flora’s ability to rapidly follow through on its commitments and marks a major turning point for our Kasa Wholefoods division.”
He further added, “We expect this relationship with Tropi to generate significant revenue potential in both the short and long term as we build upon a relationship with the leading food and beverage distributor in Colombia.”
Flora is an internationally focused cannabis brand builder. It is known for leveraging natural, cost-effective cultivation practices to supply cannabis derivatives to its different product divisions, including pharmaceuticals, natural wellness, hemp textiles, cosmetics, food and beverage. The company also currently operates one of the largest outdoor cultivation facilities in the world. Its fundamental goal /is to market a higher-quality premium product at competitive market prices.
Tropi, on the other hand, is an enterprise committed to developing commercial and logistical strategies that allow for the positioning of consumer packaged goods (“C.P.G.”) across different categories through various distribution models, with a focus on the Colombian market. Since it was founded back in 1996, it has made a name for itself by offering healthy and quality products, excellent customer service, and commitment to meeting customers’ needs.
With this initial sale, Flora hopes to increase its monthly sales to US$2 million as it further ventures into the newly permitted product category of cannabis-containing ingestible products. This milestone is a move towards the company maximizing the value of the relationship with Tropi, allowing for its growth and expanding its product line.
Flora is also set to hold its earnings call for the first half of the 2021 fiscal year. The call, which will be held via webcast, is scheduled for Thursday, August 19, 2021, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, right after market close (https://cnw.fm/IlG4P).
