to lead our organic growth strategy.”

category. We plan on leveraging our existing infrastructure by enhancing our selling platform, ramping

difficult to find in another single supplier. These include variety, fast flavor development, packaging

options and fresh, made-to-order products (produced within one to three days), all with low minimum

order requirements.
