True Hemp™ Expands US Distribution to Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah
True Hemp soft pet chews now available in 36 states, with addition of Denver-based distributor Monarch Pet, serving 350 independent pet stores.
Vancouver, October 12, 2016 – True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. (MJ:CSE)(TLA:FSE), has signed an agreement with Monarch Pet, a wholesaler based in Denver, Colorado, to distribute True Hemp™ pet treats in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, bringing to 36 the total number of US states where True Hemp™ is for sale.
Monarch is a family-owned and operated wholesale distributor of natural pet foods, treats and supplies, serving 350 independent pet stores in the western US.
“True Hemp is a unique product that will prove popular with consumers looking for healthy, natural products for their pets,” said Jeff Flora, who owns Monarch with his wife Tracie. “They’re a real fit for Monarch and its independent retailers.”
“The agreement with Monarch continues the amazing growth story of our True Hemp™ products, said Darcy Bomford, True Leaf CEO. Just last month, True Leaf began selling True Hemp™ pet products in Europe for the first time. True Hemp is now generating revenue on two continents – North America and Europe. “In just 14 months, we’ve gone from pre-production to becoming a global brand,” said Mr. Bomford.
True Leaf also recently announced upcoming new pet product line extensions, True Hemp™ ‘Sticks’ and True Hemp™ ‘Oil’, two new delivery formats with the same powerful True Hemp™ Hip + Joint, Calming and Health formulations. The products are currently in R&D stage, but the company plans to start shipping initial orders early in 2017.
In addition to sales in all 10 Canadian provinces, the US and now the United Kingdom, True Leaf has also recently added e-commerce for direct US consumer purchasing for True Hemp™ products on its trueleaf.com site.
