VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BC Craft Supply Co Ltd. (the “Company” or “BC CRAFT”) (CSE: CRFT) (OTC:CRFTF) (FSE:ZZD1) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a marketing services agreement with Think AHLOT Corporation (“AHLOT”) dated May 10, 2021 (the “Marketing Agreement“) and its wholly owned subsidiary Medcann Health Products Ltd. (“Medcann“) has entered into an agreement with 9869247 Canada Limited D.B.A Safari Flower Co. (“SAFARI”) dated May 10, 2021 (the “Distribution and Supply Agreement“) to produce and distribute craft quality half gram pre-rolls under BC Craft’s Grizzlers(TM) Brand in both single and 7 unit packs.
The Marketing Agreement with AHLOT is for a 1-year term and may be terminated upon mutual consent of both parties or breach of fundamental obligations under the agreement. AHLOT will provide the Company with a go-to-market strategy, product development, marketing and sales support for BC Craft’s Grizzlers(TM) brand. The terms of the Marketing Agreement call for a royalty payment equal to 10% of the net revenue earned by the Company during the applicable royalty period, plus any applicable taxes. AHLOT and the Company are arm’s length parties to each other.
The Distribution and Supply Agreement with SAFARI is for a 2-year term and the completion of orders totaling at 1,200 kg of dried cannabis unless terminated earlier as provided for under the agreement. If within 36 months after commencement of the agreement, the Company has not fulfilled its obligations to deliver 1,200 kg of dried cannabis, SAFARI shall have the option to terminate the agreement and require the Company to pay termination fee equal to 1,200 less the number of kg actually processed x 1500. SAFARI will transform the Company’s bulk cannabis into cannabis products by packaging and labelling the bulk cannabis in a form compliant for sale to consumers and sale to selling processors or distributors. Services under the Distribution and Supply Agreement are set at predetermined rates that are comparable to current market rates for premium cannabis processing services. SAFARI and Medcann are arm’s length parties to each other.
BC Craft is happy to announce that Grizzlers(TM) brand pre-rolls have been accepted by the AGLC in both packaging formats, and a Notice to Purchase has been issued by the OCS for the 7 unit multi-pack as part of their latest product call. Grizzlers(TM) will be made available in both Alberta and Ontario beginning in June.
Grizzlers(TM) was highly successful in the legacy cannabis space, with a great degree of brand equity driven by national distribution and a fair pricing strategy which the Company plans to maintain in the adult recreational cannabis market.
Grizzlers(TM) exemplifies craft quality cannabis at a great value, and the Company is excited to make a legacy product available to Canadian cannabis consumers under a brand and format which they know and love.
Greg Pantelic, CEO of AHLOT says: “We first experienced Grizzlers(TM) in the legacy market, where it was a top-performing and extremely memorable pre-roll product. AHLOT is excited to tap into that nostalgia and commercialize the Grizzlers(TM) brand, allowing Canadians to easily discover – or re-discover – Grizzlers(TM) in the legal market.”
Matthew Watters, CEO of BC Craft stated, “This is a celebration for the Company as we execute our vision of launching legacy brands in the legal space. Realizing revenue from this partnership with AHLOT and SAFARI is a critical step in our journey to be the premier aggregator helping legacy brands go to market. With the help of our new partners, we look forward to continuing to grow the Grizzlers(TM) brand into provincial retail markets for the good of our investors and for the good of cannabis.”
