ORLEANS, Ontario, July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tetra Natural Health Inc., a division of Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:TBP) (OTCQB:TBPMF), announced that it will be commercializing Hemp Energy Drink, a caffeinated energy drink containing hemp, that received a Temporary Marketing Authorization (TMA) by Health Canada. Tetra intends on launching this product ahead of the upcoming legalization as it begins to position itself as a player in the natural health product market.
Hemp Energy Drink is developed for those who want to have a clear and focused mind and live an active and fun lifestyle. It can be consumed whenever people are in need of energy whilst working, driving or playing sports and leisure activities. The functional benefits of hemp energy drink are mainly to help for concentration, alertness and to contribute to mental performance and reduction of fatigue.
Hemp Energy Drinks are already available in the U.S.A. and in several European countries, and the European Food Safety Authority confirmed the positive health effects related to the ingredients of Hemp Energy Drink.
Tetra Natural Health has a team of natural health experts that have been preparing to commercialize products containing hemp or that act on the cannabinoid receptors under the existing Food and Drug regulations. To lead and support the team, Tetra recently announced the arrival of Richard Giguere, Executive Vice President Commercial Operations who will implement and oversee the natural health product commercial sales and growth strategy.
Richard has more than 20 years’ experience in sales and marketing including OTC, natural products and original pharmaceutical medications. His arrival was perfectly aligned with Tetra Natural Health’s goal to develop and sell hemp, cannabis and cannabinoid-based OTC (self-care) products to leverage the post-legalization market. Tetra obtained the rights to the TMA and plans on expanding this food product line as part of a structured sales driven growth plan.
