Vancouver, B.C., December 21st. 2020 – Solarvest BioEnergy Inc. (“Solarvest”, or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SVS), Solarvest, through it’s 100% wholly owned subsidiary Eversea™ is pleased to announce plans to launch its Organic Omega-3 nutritional Gummy Fruit Drops for children after the year-end holiday break. The fruit drop has been produced and passed quality control under high standards from our German contract manufacturer. The final phase is to confirm the quality of the product after the logistics of shipping and packaging which is underway. The Company’s first of its kind nutritional gummy product will be an exceptional competitor in the large and rapidly growing gummy supplement market. The organic gummy contains Solarvest’s proprietary, certified organic, Omega-3 DHA powder, a sustainable, plant based powder designed for organic, vegetarian and vegan consumers.
The Company is actively working to add unique products to satisfy the demand for premium organic, Omega-3 and plant-based health products. This first labelled product will soon commence sales in the USA and be available from the company’s E-commerce website (www.eversea.ca) and through Amazon. Eversea will be capable of providing organic oriented retailers with house branded products based on our patented ingredient (differentiation), so that they may take benefit from the exten-sive market demand for the product’s unique characteristics, particularly for organic and vegan diets.
The company also announces the completion of its USA infrastructure and logistics system for order processing. Our west coast distribution point is located close to the primary and most important market for organic and plant based supplements/foods. In addition this strategic location is close to organic food processors, sustainable oriented consumers and the organic baby food market. The facility is capable of nation-wide distribution.
The Eversea Omega-3 powder is USDA and EU Organic Certified and produced from the Company’s sustainable, proprietary process. Gerri Greenham, CEO, notes that, “Our omega 3’s are sustainable because they are expressed in algae and grown in controlled facilities which eliminates the need to harvest marine species. Our technology produces an organically certified, highly bioavailable long-chain Omega-3 that cannot be produced by common plant species such as flaxseed or hemp which only contain ALA Omega-3. Our customers are buying a product to improve health so they want an organic product which has a clean label of ingredients.” The Company also intends to sell the powder supplement to organic food processors and mar-keters, such as baby food suppliers, to facilitate the development of enhanced patent-protected products. The Company also intends to pursue other premium animal health applications such as high Omega-3 eggs, pet supplements and food. “
Eversea has also initiated a second product run with its German-based organically certified manufacturer to supplement inventory levels domestically and initiate international sales. Recognizing that Eversea’s organically certified product holds a competitive advantage with several differentiating factors focused on sustainability, environmental conservation, bioavailability and purity, the Company will be able to deliver alternatives for the adult, seniors, infant formula and maternity markets to com-plement its adolescent offering.
