Tauriga’s Chief Executive Officer Seth M. Shaw stated, “After extensive consultations with our contract R & D laboratory, the Company has decided to commence development of this newest version of Tauri-Gum™. This proposed product, when production is complete, will represent an important diversification for both the Company and its flagship Tauri-Gum™ brand. The Company firmly believes that functional chewing gum technologies are gaining traction and importance in both the retail and medical arenas. This product will be the Company’s sixth Tauri-Gum™ flavor or version, and will contain no Phytocannabinoids. Besides the large and fast-growing market opportunity for immune boosting supplements, this product enables the Tauri-Gum™ brand to gain a potential initial foothold with some large retailers that have not yet introduced CBD and CBG edibles products. The Company continues to experience strong levels of interest in all of its products and product lines and this proposed Tauri-Gum™ version has the potential to attract a completely different demographic to the Company’s continually growing customer base.”
