Orlando, FL, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verus International, Inc. (“Verus” or the “Company”) (OTC Pink: VRUS), a food and hemp-based products company, is pleased to announce that it has signed its first distribution agreement in Florida featuring products from its joint venture (JV) with Flörd, a maker of premium rare cannabinoids. The Company is also pleased to announce that it has expanded the JV’s offerings into the beverage space, adding additional SKUs in this key market.
To leverage this new focus for Verus, the Company is also announcing the development of a revised website designed to promote sales of the Flörd line, along with a restart of Twitter and other forms of outreach to better communicate with customers and investors. Management’s plan is to quickly stock key accounts in the Florida market to build momentum for an accelerating distribution footprint throughout the summer months.
“These are necessary first steps, as we begin our journey toward producing meaningful revenue,” explained Verus CEO Andy Dhruv. “We are working closely with the Flörd team to create a rapid presence in some key regional markets, with the goal to continue to layer on new customers over the next several months. Under our JV arrangement, we have sufficient inventory to finally create some revenue momentum, so we are revamping our website and other marketing resources in order to support that process. We will be in a better position to report on sell-through and other metrics after we gather store data. Our goal is to increase all elements of our public outreach as we work to build a brand presence. We are starting with products that are currently in high demand, so we are looking forward to valuable customer feedback as our products begin to populate store shelves in the coming months.”
