The sales and growth presented above are much lower that what was previously projected by Hempco® distributors in EU, Canada and Korea. "Hempco® has had to re-calculate and set more conservative and realistic goals and has implemented an extensive and intensive bulk products and PLANETHEMP CPG retail sales strategic plan to overcome packaging issues and distributor non-performance challenges. Hempco® has 4 new hires for bulk and retail sales and many new leads and Purchase Orders are flowing in. The Hempco® $9M sales contract with its Korean Distributor ends August 31, 2017 and will complete just over 50% of its target. Both parties are doing everything they can to regain the 30% market share once held in Korea, in the midst of a price war," says CEO Charles Holmes. "There are several new distributors from EU, Australia, Canada, USA, Mexico and China expressing keen interest in the PLANETHEMP CPG retail line and Hempco® will continue to forge ahead to land our premier hemp food products into affluent and health-interested markets around the world." PLANETHEMP products may be purchased online at: https://www.amazon.co.uk, www.planethemp.co.uk and https://www.boroughbox.com and are available in over 70 stores in Canada and 90 stores in the UK.
