FinCanna Provides Update on West County Brands Product Rollout
Demand for the Company’s MYTHC Life™ Branded Products Continues to Grow
Vancouver, British Columbia, March 17, 2022 - FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) (“the Company”)(CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) an investment company focused on the U.S. licensed cannabis industry, is pleased to provide an update regarding its investee company, QVI Inc., operating as West County Brands, regarding the product rollout of its MYTHC Life™ brand and its joint venture with Cherry Kola Farms, an award winning producer of premium cannabis products in California.
Beginning last week, sales & marketing partner Petalfast, introduced West County Brands own MYTHC Life’s™ live rosin products and flavoured gummies, co-labelled with Cherry Kola Farms, to a cross section of retail dispensaries and multi-store operations in Northern and Southern California. The response was unanimously positive, further validating the brand’s core product features of superior quality and disruptive price.
Based on demand, industry leading distributor Calyx Brands, has committed to placing West County Brands products in 40 retail locations in March/April and are committed to expanding distribution throughout their existing 270 client account network by year end. This should put QVI in a position to rapidly grow its revenues in the coming months.
West County Brands is currently in production with 4 SKU’s of flavoured gummies and one SKU of live rosin gummies under the MYTHC Life™ brand and is continuing its production of Cherry Kola Farms live rosin products. All current production is scheduled for delivery to retail dispensary accounts as soon as completed. Going forward, West County Brands will ramp-up its output to meet the growing demand and will expand its production to include more SKU’s under both its MYTHC Life™ and GOTHC Life™ labels.
Annie Holman, Co-Founder and CEO of QVI said, “We’re so pleased to be working with the outstanding people at Petalfast and Calyx. It was fantastic to meet with dispensary owners face-to-face last week and see their enthusiasm for our brand, MYTHC Life™. I’ll say it again, Calyx Brands and Petalfast are first-rate distribution and sales & marketing teams, covering the state of California and we expect tremendous success together.”
Andriyko Herchak, CEO of FinCanna Capital said, “I’m very pleased to see our “retail to manufacturing model” featuring superior products and disruptive pricing come together in such a powerful way. Our team is driving market penetration across the state with both dispensaries and delivery businesses to build out our sales and distribution footprint. It’s exciting to see the order book growing, pushing the West County Brands team to add new SKU’s and to ramp-up production to meet the increasing demand. We believe we have all the pieces in place for success; proven production capabilities, quality branded disruptively priced products, a profit-share joint venture with highly regarded Cherry Kola Farms and outstanding sales & marketing and distribution representation with Petalfast and Calyx Brands. The strong initial demand for our products has validated our business model and we look forward to increasing revenues and cash flow as our business continues to scale.”
