The three-year partnership is the first of its kind between Canadian hemp and music industries
TORONTO, April 26, 2016 /CNW/ - Mettrum Hempworks Inc. ("Mettrum Hemp" or "Mettrum Originals") a subsidiary of Mettrum Health Corp., maker and distributor of Mettrum Originals products, and Live Nation announced a three-year partnership to re-name the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre's grass bowl seating Mettrum Originals Lawn, and bring Mettrum Originals' superfood and skin-care hemp products to artists and music lovers at the popular entertainment venue.
Over the years, Mettrum Originals has been a leader in the hemp industry, introducing the first food brand of its kind in Canada. Its partnership with Live Nation once again marks a first – a collaboration between a Canadian hemp food company and live entertainment.
"We are excited to build and support this unique partnership and are dedicated to enhancing the live music experience for artists and audiences alike," said George Scorsis, president of Mettrum Health Corp. "The Mettrum Originals Lawn will be the perfect spot for music lovers to enjoy the freedom of outdoor seating, while enjoying our superfood products and discovering the benefits of our homegrown hemp products."
For over 20 years, the Live Nation-owned and operated Molson Canadian Amphitheatre has been one of Toronto's premiere concert venues. Its seating capacity of 16,000 features a 7,000-seat grass bowl – now the Mettrum Originals Lawn – that has become an iconic location for concert-goers across the GTA.
"We are extremely excited about the opportunity to bring in Mettrum Originals as our new name partner of the Lawn section of the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre," said John May, president, Ontario region and EVP national alliances, Live Nation. "We're always looking to partner with Canadian brands and we at Live Nation are looking forward to building a successful and authentic partnership."
As of May 2016, Mettrum Originals' premium hemp food and skin-care lines - including Hemp Seeds, Hemp Break Bars and Lip Balms - will be made available to Amphitheatre visitors and artists through on-site sampling. This partnership with Live Nation will mark the company's first foray into large-scale product sampling and distribution at events.
Mettrum Originals' premium hemp products – food, skin-care and household lines - are currently available online at mettrumoriginals.com and sold at nearly 2,000 outlets across North America.
